Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed To Supreme Court With Support From Majority of Senators

    A majority of U.S. Senators voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday evening with Democrats refusing to engage in bipartisanship.

    Barrett was confirmed on a 52-48 vote with only Republicans voting to confirm her. One Republican, Susan Collins (ME), voted against Barrett which comes as she is in the middle of a tough re-election campaign and her "no" vote would ultimately not alter the outcome.

    A recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll showed that 51 percent of Americans wanted Barrett confirmed to the court while only 28 percent opposed the move.

    "A little more than 2 in 10 voters, 21 percent, don't have an opinion about Barrett's nomination," Politico reported. "The new survey represents an increase in support for Barrett's confirmation compared with a survey immediately after her initial nomination last month, when 37 percent of voters said the Senate should vote to confirm her."

    Furthermore, only 27 of Americans supports Democrats' extreme proposal to pack the court with additional judges to give them a partisan advantage.

    "Justice Amy Coney Barrett is a reminder to millions of Americans why they voted for President Trump in the first place," the Trump campaign said in a statement. "She is now the third solid, conservative Justice appointed to the Supreme Court by the President and she will apply the Constitution and not turn the Court into a super legislature."

    "Her nomination and confirmation exposed the radical leftist plan to pack the Court by expanding its size, and also put Joe Biden on the spot," the statement continued. "He must now come clean with the American people, reveal his list of prospective Justices, explain his position on court packing, and stop telling voters that they 'don't deserve' to know what he thinks."

    Barrett's Alma Mater, Notre Dame, wrote the following brief biography on her:

  • The Honorable Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in October 2017. She is a Notre Dame Law School alumna and has taught as a member of the Law School's faculty since 2002.
  • Judge Barrett teaches and researches in the areas of federal courts, constitutional law, and statutory interpretation. Her scholarship in these fields has been published in leading journals, including the Columbia, Virginia, and Texas Law Reviews. From 2010-2016, she served by appointment of the Chief Justice on the Advisory Committee for the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. She has been selected as "Distinguished Professor of the Year" by three of the Law School's graduating classes.
  • Judge Barrett earned her B.A. in English literature, magna cum laude, from Rhodes College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and, among other honors, was chosen by the faculty as the most outstanding graduate in the college's English department. She earned her J.D., summa cum laude, from Notre Dame, where she was a Kiley Fellow, earned the Hoynes Prize, the Law School's highest honor, as the number one student in her class, and served as executive editor of the Notre Dame Law Review.
  • Before joining the Notre Dame faculty, Judge Barrett clerked for Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for Associate Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court. As an associate at Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin in Washington, D.C., she litigated constitutional, criminal, and commercial cases in both trial and appellate courts. Judge Barrett has served as a visiting associate professor and John M. Olin Fellow in Law at the George Washington University Law School, as a visiting associate professor of law at the University of Virginia and is a member of the American Law Institute (ALI).
