Question Prompts Criticism of Congress

This week's poll question asked if the Senate should have changed the rules for a Supreme Court nominee. Sheridan Media reporter Pat Blair took the question to a few people on the street. Here's her report.

No matter which side of the question they were on, several respondents criticized the behavior of Congress. The poll question was, “Should the Senate have changed the rules to allow a majority vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch?” About half of the respondents said yes, the others said no.

But most of them, no matter how they answered the question, were critical of Congress.

This respondent had praise for Gorsuch.

Another respondent said a rule change was necessary.

One of those who disagreed with the rule change elaborated.

Another woman agreed with the rules change and explained her position.

There's still time to visit the poll on Sheridan Media's web site. As of Wednesday afternoon, the vote was 52 percent in favor of the rules change, 45 percent against and 3 percent undecided.
