Wisconsin Voters support the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court. A PoliticalIQ survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters found 45% in favor of Barrett’s confirmation, with 38% opposed and 18% unsure. The poll, conducted by Scott Rasmussen, has a margin of error of 3.5%.
Barrett’s confirmation vote will come shortly, as the Senate Judiciary Committee has just voted to advance the nomination of Barrett, setting up her confirmation vote by the full Senate on Monday. Democrats on the committee boycotted the vote in an effort to draw attention to an upcoming case on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
The poll found Wisconsin Voters had a largely positive view of Barrett, with 45% having a very or somewhat favorable opinion of the Judge, and 34% having a very or somewhat unfavorable view of her. In terms of the overall performance of the Supreme Court, 45% of Likely Wisconsin Voters rated the High Court as either excellent or good.
PoliticalIQ.com will be releasing Iowa results later today, prior to tonight’s final Presidential Debate. In 2016, President Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin by less than 1%. Wisconsin has 10 Electoral Votes.
The survey of 800 Likely Wisconsin Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen from October 14-20, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were randomly selected from a list of Registered Voters and contacted via text or through a process of Random Digital Engagement. A total of 142 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. The Likely Voter sample was derived from a larger sample of Registered Voters using screening questions and other factors. Certain quotas were applied to the larger sample and lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the state’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
Thirty-nine percent (39%) of the Likely Voters either identify as Republican or Lean Republican. Thirty-six percent (36%) either identify as a Democrat or Lean Democrat. Twenty-five percent (25%) do not identify with either major party.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.5 percentage points.
