Voters Want Senate to Prioritize Coronavirus Stimulus Over Supreme Court

About two-thirds of voters nationally and in six electoral swing states believe the Senate should focus on passing more coronavirus aid rather than confirming Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, according to new CNBC/Change Research polls.

The surveys also find Democratic nominee Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump in a still-competitive presidential race, and Democrats leading in three Senate contests that will help to decide the chamber’s majority.

Asked what the Senate should make its top priority right now, 66% of U.S. likely voters answered coronavirus relief and 34% said filling the Supreme Court vacancy, the poll released Tuesday found. In the states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, 62% of respondents said the Senate should focus on Covid-19 aid, and 38% said it should prioritize filling the seat.
