Senate Democrats ran a poll of Twitter Friday asking users if they want more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or like Brett Kavanaugh.
The results were not what the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee was hoping for. As of Sunday, with nearly 200,000 responses collected, Kavanaugh had won 70 percent of the vote to Ginsburg’s 30 percent.

Although the poll was to be open for another two days, conservatives went ahead and declared victory. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, tweeted a screen grab of the poll, adding, “#SundayMotivation.”

Democrats have gotten used to losing to Republicans on the judiciary in recent years. Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court pick, was confirmed by the Senate last October despite liberals’ best attempts to disqualify him over allegations of sexual misconduct in his youth. The court now has a solid 5-4 conservative majority.
Republicans’ remaking of the judiciary has extended well beyond the Supreme Court, too. On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., celebrated the confirmation of Trump’s 100th nominee to the federal judiciary, Southern District of Florida Judge Rodolfo Armando Ruiz II.
Meanwhile, a number of conservatives have responded to the Senate Democrats’ poll by voicing support for U.S. Seventh Circuit Court Judge Amy Barrett, whom Trump is reportedly planning to appoint to the Supreme Court in the event Ginsburg’s seat on the side of the bench becomes available.
