Crossing Party Lines: New York

Confirming Supreme Court justices has become highly partisan in recent decades. Justice Scalia was confirmed with 98 votes, Justice Ginsburg 96. But Justice Kavanaugh got only 1 Democrat vote.

– Has the selection process become overly partisan?
– Why do we disagree about the role of judges?
– Does partisanship impact a judge’s objectivity?

People along the political spectrum have different ways of seeing and experiencing the world. This is mostly due to psychology, not politics. Our divided court reflects that: some think judges should be guarded, others expansive. Most are mixed.

All voices need to be heard and respected.
