To paraphrase an old saying, be careful what you tweet for.
Democrats are so infatuated with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and so dismissive of Justice Brett Kavanaugh that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee brainstormed and decided to conduct a twitter poll asking, ”Do you want more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or more justices like Brett Kavanaugh?”
A whopping 71% responded “justices like Brett Kavanaugh” while a paltry 29% said “justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.” First posted Friday the poll had vanished by Sunday afternoon.
Naturally Republicans had a great time teasing Democrats for deleting the poll.
For instance there was this from Republican National Committee spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington.

Pro-life President Donald Trump also has enjoyed a string of improving numbers, including at Gallup, whose contempt for Trump practically oozes out.
Under the headline, “Gallup: Trump Approval Hits New High, Now Higher Than Obama’s And Reagan’s At This Point,”
Allahpundit explained the president’s highest numbers since his first week in office this way: Democrats.
Although only 12%, not so long ago Trump’s approval numbers among Democrats was a mere 4%.
Beyond Gallup, Allahpundit observed that Trump’s is enjoying “44.0 percent approval in RCP’s [Real Clear Politics’s] poll of polls, which is creeping up towards his best mark since March 2017.” Even Harris/Harvard had the president at 46%.
In addition, President Trump’s approval numbers among Hispanics is at or near 50%. Steve Cortes writes
McLaughlin & Associates revealed that Hispanic approval for Trump in March jumped to 50%. This number matched the January Marist/NPR/PBS survey that shocked cynics with its own 50% approval finding. Even if those polls are too aggressive, February’s Morning Consult/Politico poll showed Trump’s Hispanic approval vaulting to a still-impressive 45%.
