Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by 96 senators, representing 95.9% of the American public. Let’s give that number a name. Let’s call it, oh I don’t know, her legitimacy.
Neil Gorsuch was confirmed by 54 senators, representing 44% of America, less than half the legitimacy of Ginsburg or even Stephen Breyer (89.3%).
If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed by every Republican senator (and the two “independent” ones) and no Democratic ones, his legitimacy will be a mere 42.5%.
