This scenario is bad for those vulnerable Senate Democrats, who must either vote against the nominee in states where voters are likely to view Kavanaugh and Trump favorably or risk alienating their Democratic supporters by playing a direct role in the confirmation of a judge that many rank-and-file Democrats find wholly unacceptable.
Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of CT said on Wednesday that Trump, in choosing Kavanaugh, is "trying to rig a Supreme Court such that it will strike down protections for pre-existing conditions and he has a case ready to move to the Supreme Court to do just that".
"I don't think there's much that Democratic senators can do to slow down or to prevent his confirmation", said Suffolk Law professor Rene Reyes.
"They're going to try to make the whole confirmation process about specific outcomes", said Sasse. "The American public deserves to know what Kavanaugh saw and heard, and if he did witness or hear about any harassment, what he did or could have done to report it".
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to tell Democrats that if they want to have a Supreme Court pick, they should "WIN ELECTIONS!" At the same time, several democratic senators are facing re-election in more conservative states and will be faced with the choice of supporting their party or having to defend a vote against the president to a constituency that largely supports him. "People are going to start focusing on this with two weeks to go", said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

Judge Kavanaugh, who once clerked for Justice Kennedy, worked for the second Bush administration before being confirmed as a federal appeals judge for the District of Columbia in 2006. The leader of the Senate Democrats is a smart cookie (perfect SAT score: just ask him!) from Brooklyn back when Brooklyn was Brooklyn, before the arrival of manbuns and artisanal cheese.
Democrats need to all vote as a block and have a few Republicans come over to their side to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation, neither is likely to happen.
A liberal group, Demand Justice, has promised its own $5 million ad campaign to defeat Kavanaugh, focused on Democratic senators from Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia and Republicans from ME and Alaska.
But if they are the deciding vote against Trump's nominee, then voters in their states - which all voted for Trump decisively - would be more energized and determined to throw them out of office.
Ever since, circumstances have meant that presidents have been able to fill just two openings each.
