These institutions can slow long-term demographic and ideological trends but they are unlikely to halt them. Sen. Mitch McConnell has increased his lead over former Marine Corps pilot Amy McGrath to 12 percentage points, according to a public poll released Wednesday. The margin of error for responses ranges from +/-2% to +/-7%. The new poll indicates a growing lead for the Senate majority leader over his Democratic challenger.
Republicans have won power in significant measure through institutions that buffer the influence of national majorities: The Electoral College, the Senate, and, above all, the Supreme Court. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConell answers questions following a weekly Republican policy luncheon. But McConnell said the Senate would have time to consider both a coronavirus bill and Barrett’s nomination before the election “unless Democrats block this aid for workers.”.
The brand of conservatism that McConnell and most Republicans of his generation rode to power was to a significant degree a backlash against the Supreme Court.
McConnell leads McGrath 52% to 37% with 86% of GOP voters favoring McConnell. The most important item in the last testament is filling courts with people in position to check liberal ambitions long after McConnell is gone. Liberals didn’t like it but this new conservative movement was clearly in the ascendancy, as highlighted by Ronald Reagan’s 1980 victory and his reelection by winning 59 percent of the vote and 49 states. A conservative movement that in youth worked to rein in the Supreme Court’s unelected power in the name of democracy now hopes in old age to harness the Supreme Court’s unelected power to protect it from the hazards of too much democracy. Meadows and Mnuchin had requested the vote earlier this week. A Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday showed McConnell with a 12-point lead, while another Quinnipiac poll released in August showed McConnell with a slimmer lead of just 5 points over McGrath. It is fitting that the end, like the beginning, is about control of the courts. McConnell dares Democrats to block 'targeted' Covid relief before election. It’s not entirely clear if Democrats will allow debate on the bill, but they voted down a similar proposal in September. “The House passed a bill in May and this Senate went on vacation,” McGrath said. But Pelosi has remained firm, and has marshaled support from across her leadership team — releasing statements opposing the GOP offer from eight of her Democratic chairs. The national electorate is younger, more diverse, and less traditional in cultural attitudes, and more enthusiastic about a robust role for government. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday that the Senate will take one more shot at a “targeted” coronavirus relief bill before the election, an approach Democrats have repeatedly rejected as insufficient. There are two possible reasons why it would be rational for him to act on the Supreme Court vacancy in a way that is so damaging to the reputation of the Senate, and so contemptuous of half of his Senate colleagues and of American voters.
