51 votes are needed to confirm a nominee in the 100 member chamber. Republicans have 51 members a number that could change in next month’s elections. If Democrats vote lockstep against Kavanaugh they would need two Republicans to join them to defeat the nominee, since Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote in the event of a 50-50 split.
在100个成员的议院中,需要51票才能确认提名。共和党有51名成员,这个数字在下个月的选举中可能会改变。如果民主党与卡瓦诺势均力敌,他们将需要两名共和党人加入其中,才能击败提名人选,因为副总统迈克?彭斯将在两党平分秋色的情况下投出决定性的一票。
