Could one woman still block Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court?

“In the end, whether or not the supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed could come down to the vote of one senator: Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from Maine.

Historically, she is popular with women. She attracts voters who are registered Democrats. She opposed Trump’s candidacy for president, saying that he could make the world “more dangerous”.

But on Kavanaugh, she has remained mostly silent and her intentions are still a mystery.”
