More popular than Alito, Roberts, or Miers at this point in the process.

Lots of noise from the left and right, very quiet from the senate. There are politics involved for those with an election.

Even 4 years from now who would want to be the one to vote against the one hispanic member of the SCOTUS. Big demographic in a lot of states.

It's a done deal.
