A new NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll shows 62% of voters want the Senate to vote on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee before the November midterm elections.

Why it matters: Democrats have been calling for the exact opposite, but this doesn't mean they're in peril — 66% of Democrats across the country said the nominee is an important factor in their vote, which could fire up the Dem base even more.
