Roberts refers complaints about Kavanaugh to federal judges in Colorado

(Republicans are especially likely to say they are benefiting from an improved economy: 42% say their family is better off financially than they were a year ago, almost double the percentage of independents who say this, and more than three times the percentage of Democrats.) Republicans also cite immigration.

Senate Democratic leaders defended the decision as an obvious one. Then-president Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland, but Republicans used their majority to prevent Garland from even getting a Senate hearing.

Democrats agreed to swallow the additional nominations to free up their vulnerable members to campaign full time for the next three weeks.

Clearing the judicial nominees provided a signature walk-off for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has focused on reshaping the judiciary with more conservative jurists. And after last week's near-party-line Supreme Court vote, they have secured a conservative majority on the court that could last for a generation.

President Trump took the rare step of publishing an op-ed in USA Today slamming universal medicare proposals, or Medicare for All, as an extremist proposal fashioned by progressive Democrats.

The tone inside the courtroom was collegial, in contrast to the venom of Kavanaugh's confirmation fight.

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted. That's apparently fine by most voters ― just 26 percent said they wanted to see candidates spending more time talking about the court, compared to the 47 percent who said they wanted to hear more about health care. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who some Republicans have accused of leaking Ford's letter claiming sexual assault by Kavanaugh. One man in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, told a lawmaker that God will "judge you and the rest of your damned cronies on the Hill", while a Boston woman demanded to know, "Why do you continue to support a Nazi policy?" That crowd, which dwarfed the hundreds or several thousand anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators, vented anger at times, shouting "Liar, liar" and waving sings including one saying, "Bury Obama Care with Kennedy", a reference to Sen. Independent women are more likely to say they than either Republican or Democratic women.

Tymkovich, the judge who is now in charge of investigating the complaints, was appointed to the bench by President George W. Bush and was on President Donald Trump's list of possible Supreme Court nominess, though Trump ultimately chose Kavanaugh.

McConnell criticized Clinton, who said on CNN this week that "civility can start again" after Democrats capture the House or Senate in next month's elections.

McConnell noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice by "a politically crazed gunman".

"I hope that our supporters understand that, but we need to be focusing on is the outcome of the 2018 elections", she said adding that if Democrats control the Senate next year they will be able to block Trump's nominees they oppose.

Gunman James Hodgkinson, killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by Trump's election. His social media posts suggest he targeted Republicans because of his political views.
