Rep. Kustoff: Americans Don’t Support Biden Picking SCOTUS Nominee Based on Race

President Biden is intent on nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court without considering all possible candidates, but Rep. David Kustoff (R-TN) told the Todd Starnes Show that’s not where the American people are.

“An ABC News/Ipsos poll says Americans are in favor of Biden considering nominees on merit and not simply based on their race,” said Kustoff. “76% to 23% want Biden to consider all possible nominees, and he should.”

The majority of Americans want Biden to consider all possible nominees with less than a quarter supporting his choice based on race and gender, according to the ABC News poll.

During the spring 2020 presidential primaries, Biden pledged to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court, which he doubled down on last week.

“We need to have the most qualified person to be nominated for the Supreme Court and then let the Senate consider it,” said Kustoff. “Biden is out of step, and when you have those types of numbers, 76% to 23%, I think that should tell Biden and the White House something.”

Biden plans to make his announcement by the end of February.

“Although the poll’s sample size was not large enough to break out results for Black people, only a little more than 1 in 4 nonwhite Americans (28%) wish for Biden to consider only Black women for the vacancy,” said ABC News about the poll. “Democrats are more supportive of Biden’s vow (46%) than Americans as a whole, but still a majority of Democrats (54%) also prefer that Biden consider all possible nominees.”

If confirmed by the Senate, the nominee would replace Stephen Breyer. Justice Breyer is retiring after nearly 30 years on the Court. Breyer was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1994.
