An Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey found that only one in four people think Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being “completely honest” when he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month. The Associated Press reports 31 percent believed Kavanaugh was “largely lying” during his testimony, while 39 percent thought he was “mostly honest.” Another 25 percent of respondents said they thought he was “totally truthful.” The breakdown of the numbers is largely partisan. Six in 10 Republicans said they thought Kavanaugh was “entirely truthful,” while fewer than 1 in 10 Democrats thought Kavanaugh was telling the entire truth. According to the poll, 43 percent said they disapproved of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, while 35 percent approved. Kavanaugh was accused of attempting to sexually assault Christine Blasey Ford at a high school party, an accusation he vehemently denied at the Senate hearing. Classmates also described him as a heavy drinker, which he denied.
