This is likely attributed to the recently publicized allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were in high school.

Some, however, do not believe the survey to be accurate.

Regardless of whether the fluctuating numbers are correct, the Senate Judiciary Committee and ultimately the U.S. Senate body will be the determinants of whether Kavanaugh sits on the high court.
