A new AP-NORC poll finds just 1 in 4 people thinks Brett Kavanaugh was completely honest when he heatedly rebuffed charges of sexual assault and heavy drinking during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

A new YouGov/Economist poll finds that people who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election believe men are discriminated against more than LGBTQ people, women and most ethnic minorities.

“Forty-nine percent of Trump voters surveyed said men face either ‘a great deal’ (18 percent) or ‘a fair amount’ (31 percent) of discrimination in America today. By contrast, this same group found 41 percent of LGBTQ people, 30 percent of women, 38 percent of African-Americans and 42 percent of Mexican-Americans faced either ‘a great deal’ or a ‘fair amount’ of discrimination.”
