More of those polled after two weeks of press coverage of Amy Coney Barrett said they support her nomination than said so before the hearings, according to a new poll.
The Morning Consult survey showed an 11-point increase to 48% in support for Barrett’s nomination between the announcement in September and the eve of the confirmation hearings.
Among Republicans, 77% thought Barrett should be confirmed, while only 27% of Democrats thought the same.

Barrett’s confirmation hearings went off without a hitch, and her confirmation vote is scheduled for next week.
