When 100 percent of the Democrats vote against Amy Coney Barrett

Unlike Trump nominees Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, and in spite of her qualifications, Barrett didn’t get a single Democratic vote in the Senate.

What should we think when every single Democrat voted against the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett? What does this say about their convictions and ideology?

There were actually three Democrats who voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch in 2017 (Donnelly, Heitkamp, and Manchin). Even Brett Kavanaugh received one Democratic vote in 2018 (again, Manchin).

But when it came to Barrett, not one Democrat voted for her. Not one.

This happened despite her receiving a “‘Well Qualified’ rating from the American Bar Association (ABA) whose representatives relayed descriptions of her as ‘brilliant’ and an ‘intellectual giant.’”

And this happened despite there being no allegations of sexual impropriety to dog her, as with the attacks on Kavanaugh.

No, this was a simple rejection of Barrett as a conservative jurist who might one day vote to overturn Roe. v. Wade. For some, this was a simple rejection of a God-fearing, devout Catholic serving on the highest court in the land. Danger!
