Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh remains an unknown quantity to much of the public, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, with views on confirming President Donald Trump's pick largely unchanged since his name was announced.

Paul tweeted to announce his support Monday, writing, "After meeting Judge Kavanaugh and reviewing his record, I have made a decision to support his nomination". Rand Paul, who had expressed some concerns about Kavanaugh's record related to privacy and the 4th Amendment, said he would vote for Kavanaugh. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.), one of three Democrats who supported Neil Gorsuch a year ago for the Supreme Court.

Paul's support could prove critical to the White House's effort to secure the votes needed for Kavanaugh to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. He said he was confident Kavanaugh would be more open to constitutional Fourth Amendment protections involving digital records and property.

"I believe he will carefully adhere to the Constitution and will take his job to protect individual liberty seriously", Paul said in a statement.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) are likely the two GOP holdouts on Kavanaugh.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

The dispute has become a focal point in the confirmation process, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer accusing Republicans of "hiding" something in Kavanaugh's record. Now that he's siding with Trump, Sens.
