Gorsuch nomination meets with positive reception

Americans’ first impressions of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch tilt positive, and a plurality say the Senate ought to vote to confirm President Donald Trump’s selection to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. …

Assessing the Republican leaders in Congress who will manage Gorsuch’s confirmation process, their approval ratings are on the rise. At the outset of this first period of GOP control of both houses of Congress and the White House since 2007, 39% approve of the way they’re handling their jobs. … Democratic leaders now hold a lower approval rating than Republicans, just 33% approve. CONT.
