In the middle of her hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court continues to rise. Forty-eight percent of registered voters favor Judge Barrett’s confirmation, which is a two-point bump from just one week ago. Notably, independent voters indicated a significant swing in support. A majority of Democrats still oppose Judge Barrett's nomination, but support doubled over the last two weeks.
