Pollster: People need more time to 'digest' Kavanaugh pick

Republican pollster Brett Loyd said on Thursday that Americans need more time to digest President TrumpDonald John TrumpJimmy Carter: 'I hope there's an age limit' on presidency White House fires DHS general counsel: report Trump to cap California trip with visit to the border MORE's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before they can form an opinion of him. 

“It’s so recent. People have had 24, 48 hours to digest it, this pick," Loyd told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." 

"They probably haven’t been able to do too much of the research, especially when it’s an overnight poll and they ask the same night that the pick was announced. It’s pretty tough.” 

Trump nominated Kavanaugh on Monday to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, who often served as a swing vote on the high court.

Conservatives have largely praised the selection, while Democrats have raised alarms about the likelihood of a right-leaning court trying to roll back health care and women's reproductive rights if Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate.
