"Trump's 91 judges have received more negative confirmation votes than the 2,653 judges confirmed to the same courts during the entire 20th century combined -- despite higher average ABA ratings than those from previous administrations," The Heritage Foundation reports.


Thomas Jipping writes:
Those 91 judges, for example, have received a total of 1,824 votes against their confirmation in 782 days. When Barack Obama was president, it took 2,123 days to rack up this many negative votes, and he had to appoint 282 judges to do it.

[...]Shifting from the votes that nominees receive to the votes that senators cast, the average Democrat has voted against 36 of the 91 judges Trump has appointed so far. This compares to the average Republican voting against six of the first 91 judges Obama appointed.

No matter how you slice or dice it, no matter what measure or standard you use, the judicial confirmation process today is radically different than it was just a few years ago.
