The president - whose Republicans fear losing at least the lower house of Congress in November - angrily predicted that the Kavanaugh row would backfire on Democrats.
As Michael Tomasky points out, with Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr., there are now four justices who were confirmed by Senators representing a national minority, and if Trump gets to fill one more seat, a majority of the court will likely have been confirmed in this manner.

"The American public has seen this charade, and it was a disgrace".
Boarding the Marine One helicopter at the White House, he branded the sexual assault allegations that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's path to the top court "a hoax" and "all made up, fabricated".
As he left the White House for an event in Florida on Monday, Mr Trump said: "So I've been hearing that now they're thinking about impeaching a brilliant jurist". Justice Kavanaugh took the two required oaths privately at the court last Saturday, letting him begin work right away.
The other eight justices also were at the White House Monday.
Kavanaugh will hear his first Supreme Court case, a day after President Trump swore in his nominee.
When Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, he vowed to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court, disclosing a list of possible candidates.
