More people believed California college professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the judge of trying to rape her when they were both high school students, and other women who accused him of misconduct than believed his denials, according to the CNN poll.
The Republican president condemned Democratic calls to impeach the judge as an "insult to the American public".
As Michael Tomasky points out, with Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr., there are now four justices who were confirmed by Senators representing a national minority, and if Trump gets to fill one more seat, a majority of the court will likely have been confirmed in this manner.
Trump has argued the Democrat party has turned into a "mob", citing the ugly confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as an example. While Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the bad pain and suffering" Kavanaugh and his family had suffered and declared him "proven innocent", the new justice assured Americans that he would be fair and was taking the job with "no bitterness".
Trump noted that Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley, was in the East Room audience at the White House, along with his two daughters Liza and Margaret.
During this historic Supreme Court justice swearing in-cum-Dem-smackdown, Trump said "In our country a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty" adding, "And with that, I must state that you sir, under historic, scrutiny were proven innocent".
On Saturday, the Senate voted 50-48 in Kavanaugh's favor, with Sen. "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", said Trump, who also described Kavanaugh as "flawless". Kavanaugh replaced Kennedy on the bench.
At a White House ceremony on Monday night, Kavanaugh sought to put the confirmation battle behind him, saying he was starting his new job without bitterness.
"I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican on November 6th", Trump said on Monday, commenting on the 2018 Congressional midterm elections at the White House. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not". On Wednesday, the only other day of arguments this week, the court will hear another two hours of arguments. He took his oaths of office in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court on Saturday evening. The president's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonising political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct.

But after being sworn in, Kavanaugh struck a markedly more conciliatory tone.
