Trump’s Supreme Court Choice has Overwhelming Support Across the Board

Judge Neil Gorsuch was chosen to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. President Trump’s Supreme Court choice has overwhelming support across the board.

Below is a list of Democrats that supported Gorsuch’s confirmation in 2006 per Daily Caller.

Former President Barack Obama

Former Vice President Joe Biden

Former Sen. Harry Reid

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary

Sen. Maria Cantwell

Sen. Tom Carper

Sen. Patrick Leahy

Sen. Robert Menendez

Sen. Patty Murray

Sen. Bill Nelson

Sen. Jack Reed

Sen. Debbie Stabenow

Sen. Ron Wyden

Since then, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon has changed his mind. He said that Gorsuch “harkens back to the days when politicians restricted a people’s rights on a whim.”

A few Democrats are attempting a filibuster.

When elevated to the 3rd sircuit, Gorsuch was not at all a controversial choice. He was confirmed with a voice vote. Many of those same people who took place in that vote are now looking to stop him. That said, the choice has been made and the people have spoken. Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. There was not even a single dissenting vote.
