Poll: Voters split on Kavanaugh

More than 40 percent of American voters are skeptical of the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a new poll that comes as the Senate works to schedule a hearing for the circuit court judge and his accuser.

Only 13 percent of Republicans find the allegation by Christine Blasey Ford, a California-based professor and high school classmate of Kavanaugh's, to be credible. Ford claims Kavanaugh attempted to rape her more than three decades ago, when they were both teenagers and attended a party where underage drinking occurred.

Fifty-one percent of respondents said the Senate should hold a public hearing for Kavanaugh and Ford to testify under oath about the allegations, though only 38 percent of voters believe Ford's story is credible.

Kavanaugh has twice denied the allegation and said he is willing to "refute" Ford's claims in sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. A male classmate whom Ford named as a witness to the alleged event has also dismissed her accusations and said he does not remember the party where she claimed the incident occurred.

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has said the committee will move ahead to a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation if Ford declines to appear before the Senate. An attorney for Ford responded to the request with various conditions Thursday afternoon, after previously demanding an FBI investigation into her client's allegations.
