Democrats have consistently been more willing to attempt to defeat or discredit nominees of Republican presidents than vice versa.Few Republican senators voted against confirmation of Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor or Kagan; many Democratic senators voted against confirmation of Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito.Judging from the hearings, nearly all Democratic senators seem inclined to vote against the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.Even those acknowledging his impressive qualifications and temperament, like Michael Bennet of Gorsuch’s native Colorado and Chris Coons of Delaware, have left themselves room to vote no.The Democratic base seems to be demanding root and branch opposition to every initiative of the Trump administration and the Republican Party, with such vehemence that few Democrats except Senators Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp, from the strongly pro-Trump states of West Virginia and North Dakota, seem wary of anything that could be interpreted as a pro-Trump vote.
