More Americans disapprove of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court than approve, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Why it matters: The 50-48 vote that confirmed Kavanaugh was closest vote on a Supreme Court justice in more than 130 years. Public opinion on Kavanaugh's confirmation and the investigation is just as divided, WaPo explains.

According to the survey of 1,144 adults and 991 registered voters: 51% disapprove of Kavanaugh, and 41% approve.

  • 41% feel the congressional investigation into Kavanaugh's sexual assault allegations were enough. 50% feel U.S. Congress did not do enough.
  • 33% of registered voters said they were more likely to support Democratic candidates versus 27% who said they'd support Republican.
  • 53% support further investigation of Kavanaugh by U.S. Congress, and 43% oppose.

In her first week on the job, Amy Coney Barrett may be deciding which votes to count in the presidential election. By her third week, she’ll be deciding the fate of the Affordable Care Act.

Where it stands: The Senate votes on Barrett’s nomination tomorrow. If she’s confirmed, Chief Justice John Roberts is expected to swear her in at the Supreme Court within hours, an administration official tells Axios.

Texas Democrats beg Biden to spend now

The Biden campaign is rebuffing persistent pleas from Texas Democrats to spend at least $10 million in the Lone Star state, several people familiar with the talks tell Axios.

Why it matters: If Texas — which has 38 electoral votes and is steadily getting more blue, but hasn't backed a Democrat for president since 1976 — flipped to the Biden column, it would be game over. But the RealClearPolitics polling average stubbornly hovers at +2.6 for Trump — and Team Biden appears more focused on closer targets.

Election night in Trumpworld

A luxe election-night watch party at the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue is being planned for President Trump's donors, friends and advisers — but Trump's hand in it is minimal because he's "very superstitious" — people familiar with the plans tell Axios.

The big picture: This "mecca for all things MAGA," as one adviser described it, is one of three hubs where they say Trumpworld will watch returns. The others are the war room at campaign HQ in Rosslyn, Virginia, and the White House residence, where Trump and the first lady will gather close family and advisers before heading to the hotel later that night, the sources said.
