POLL: Should Kavanaugh Be Confirmed After Christine Ford’s Testimony?

Getty/Palo Alto University Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh

Now that Christine Blasey Ford has testified publicly about her allegations regarding Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, do you think that Kavanaugh should still be confirmed? The question is polarizing people on opposite sides. Many Democrats feel that Ford’s testimony, coupled with her passing a lie detector test and having notes from meeting with a therapist, cast enough doubt that Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed. But many Republicans feel that there just isn’t enough solid evidence to derail his confirmation and a vote for Kavanaugh should still be confirmed. What do you think? After reading this article, please vote in Heavy’s poll at the end of the story.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were in high school, and they both testified about the allegations in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing was held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 226. Officials chose a smaller venue because they didn’t want a “circus atmosphere” like the first four days of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

Ford was questioned part of the time by Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor in Arizona. Other women who have come forward with allegations about Kavanaugh were not questioned today.

Christine Blasey Ford said that Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s at a high school party. She said he almost raped her, she feared for her life, and when she tried to scream he put his hand over her mouth. She also said Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge was in the room when it happened.

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations, and Kavanaugh is set to testify about his side today also. Meanwhile, two unnamed men came forward to the Senate Judiciary Committee and claimed that Ford might have mistaken them for Kavanaugh. But during her testimony, Ford said it was definitely Kavanaugh and there was no way she mistook him for someone else.

Ford’s attorneys had requested a full investigation before the hearing that happened today. But those requests were not granted.

Republican Chair Chuck Grassley has scheduled the Judiciary Committee to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Friday. But he said this might be delayed, depending on the hearing.

Now that you’ve seen Ford’s testimony, take Heavy’s poll below and let us know if you think Kavanaugh should be confirmed.

Ford was trying too hard to convince the public that she was assaulted, at a party. As a professional that holds several degrees !
Her hesitation in the display of her swearing-in ,she was acting as if she was confused and unaware of the process to raise her right hand !
To : (to swear the truth, the whole truth) she was trying to to convince with body language she is not familiar with this process. (Miss Ford has never been to jury duty)
Miss Ford, claims that Brett the weight was too heavy ?
These words were chosen, because no one would believe he was too strong. So !
Strong and overpowering was eliminated from her vocabulary..
To be more convincing !
Miss Ford has employees of Google to her house ?
Outspoken critic against free speech and welcome open borders !
This is very concerning !
Considering the hatred Google has to Republican party.
Google has access without the knowledge of its user to obtain all of their information, without the user’s knowledge…
Google would be able to make a calculated risk assessment ,of Donald Trump’s nomination for the Supreme Court.
As !
Miss Ford describe in detail, this was done !
(A calculation assessment)
By who ?
Miss Ford’s inconsistent of her testimony and Ford could not tell you who gave her the advice ?
No names just sources at a beach party ?
Something so traumatic in her life,if Ford gave the name or names, they too can be investigated and maybe their affiliation with the Democratic Party, or perhaps Google ?
Ford’s testimony was unbelievable !
Ford’s testimony was inconsistent with the stories and written statements Ford has already told !! Should Brett Kavanaugh be appointed to the Supreme Court.. YES !
