NEW POLL: Americans Support Amy Coney Barrett, While Greenfield Vehemently Disagrees


October 17, 2020

RED OAK, IA – Earlier this week, a new poll found that support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett continues to rise, while former Colby Interests executive Theresa Greenfield opposes her.

Barrett, a mother of seven who hails from the Midwest, has been attacked by Greenfield’s liberal allies for her Catholic faith. During her confirmation hearing however, Joni Ernst defended Barrett from these faith-based attacks.  

“Theresa Greenfield and her liberal allies oppose Judge Amy Coney Barrett, because it pains them that someone who doesn’t fit their narrow definition of womanhood could be appointed to the Supreme Court and supported by Senate Republicans, including Joni Ernst,” said Joni Ernst spokesperson Melissa Deatsch.  “Unlike Greenfield, Joni is proud to support Amy Coney Barrett because not only is she highly qualified, she emboldens the Midwest values of faith, family and freedom.”      

BACKGROUND …

Support for Barrett nomination ticks up to 48 percent.“ Support for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, rose slightly over the last week, according to a poll released on Wednesday amid her confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  The Morning Consult-Politico poll found Barrett’s nomination is supported by 48 percent of registered voters, while 31 percent say the Senate should vote her down. … Almost 6 in 10 Democrats — 59 percent — said in the poll that their party should delay a vote on Barrett until after the election.”

Greenfield opposes Amy Coney Barrett and said the nomination should be punted until next year.  “Greenfield said the court vacancy should not be filled until 2021, after the Nov. 3 election.” (The Courier, 10/13/20)

Joni Ernst is a mother, soldier and a leader who has never stopped fighting for Iowa.

Her liberal opponent is former Colby Interests real-estate executive Ms. Theresa Greenfield.  Ms. Greenfield, who lives in one of Iowa’s wealthiest zip codes, prioritized profits over people when she personally signed paperwork to remove mom and pop businesses for a corporate chain. Ms. Greenfield’s previous attempt at running for Congress ended in failure, with her campaign manager ultimately pleading guilty to election fraud.
