Overall views and partisan sentiments toward Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination have hardened over the past week, with 37 percent of Americans opposing the Senate’s confirmation of him, while 35 percent said he should be made a justice, according to a CBS/YouGov poll released on Monday.

This compares to 30 percent who opposed the nomination last week, compared with 32 percent who supported it. Those who are undecided has dropped significantly in the same time period from 38 percent last week to 28 percent now.

Other results from the survey show:

  • Republicans have grown more in favor of his confirmation compared to last week, from 69 percent to 75 percent. Among GOP supporters, 46 percent say they'll feel angry if Kavanaugh is not eventually confirmed, and another 39 percent say they'll be disappointed.
  • Democratic opposition has gone from 60 percent to 68 percent in the past week. Forty-seven percent of Democrats will be angry if Kavanaugh is confirmed, and another 36 percent will be disappointed.
  • Among independents, 37 percent support confirmation, 32 percent are opposed and 31 percent are undecided.
  • Partisanship appears to have more of an influence on overall views than does gender. Among Republican women, 70 percent say Kavanaugh should be confirmed, while 80 percent of Republican men do. Among Democratic women, 65 percent oppose it, and 73 percent of Democratic men are against. Overall, 41 percent of men want Kavanaugh confirmed, while 29 percent of women do.

This survey was conducted by YouGov using a nationally representative sample of 2,485 U.S. adults between September 28-30. The margin of error (a 95 percent confidence interval) based upon the entire sample is approximately 2.5 percent.
