So, what you got was one Democrat who turned and one Republican who turned.  How exactly does this support the items you listed.  If you only argued the things all the Republicans would be in support for then it would be 51 - 49.  If anything you would have more of a chance that a Dem would vote for Kavanaugh then anything else.

The actual results were 50 - 48, not 51 - 49. Because it was a close vote, flipping one "yay" to "nay" would not allow Kavanaugh to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. And once again, you haven't addressed my thesis at all. Now, you're just arguing for argument's sake and wanting to have the last word. I mean sure, go ahead and have the last word, but doesn't necessarily mean what you will say after this comment will have much substance considering your pattern.

I know what the result were, you did not fully read what I wrote.  I stated if nothing changed it would be 51 - 49 which is the Republicans majority vote.  In other words, the Dems would have had to flip 2 people since Pence would be the deciding vote and we pretty much know where that vote is going.  So how would bringing up issues the Republican support flip 2 votes when they were already fast tracking him through.  This is my main question, what exactly in your list you brought up would swing 2 votes, at least this incident swung one vote but it still wasn't even close by partisan lines.
