  • Why Christine Ford Vs. Brett Kavanaugh Is a Train Wreck You Can't Look Away From By Ted Rall

    Christine Blasey Ford has accused Brett Kavanaugh of trying to rape her during a party while they were teenagers.

  • Kavanaugh Has Edge in Voter Trust, But 29% Undecided

    Voters are closely divided over whether U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault a girl when he was in high school, although many are still withholding judgment. But confidence that Kavanaugh will ultimately be confirmed by the Senate is down.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the California woman who has accused Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her when they were teenagers. Slightly more (38%) believe Kavanaugh who has denied the claim. But a sizable 29% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
