Via Atrios, a Gallup poll notes: “If it becomes clear Alito would vote to reverse Roe v. Wade, Americans would not want the Senate to confirm him, by 53% to 37%.” Well, done and done. It’s perfectly clear. Based on his Casey dissent, we can predict with near-certainty how Alito would vote in the upcoming Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood case, which would be essentially a vote to cripple Roe v. Wade. Democrats have no excuse for rejecting him now. Gallup also reports: “If most Senate Democrats oppose the nomination and decide to filibuster against Alito, 50% of Americans believe they would be justified, while 40% say they would not.”

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
