Last week, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson displayed her qualifications with unbelievable grace as Senate Republicans berated, disrespected, and demeaned her. Despite it all, the American people have rallied around her, making her one of the most popular Supreme Court nominees in decades.
After last week’s Senate hearings, poll after poll shows the American people overwhelmingly support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation.
