U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, on Wednesday became the first Republican senator to commit to voting for the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s to the Supreme Court. Collins’ support all but assures Jackson will be confirmed sometime early next month, which would mark the first Black woman to serve on the nation’s highest court.

While Democrats appear largely united in pledging to vote for Jackson’s confirmation, support from Republicans is less clear following recent confirmation hearings that featured intense criticism of Jackson from GOP senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But what do you think? Should Jackson be confirmed to the Supreme Court? Let us know what you think in the poll and comments below.
