Kavanaugh is the big unknown, because we haven't heard a lot from him on the Supreme Court yet.

The history of Supreme Court appointments is that they often surprise people. Souter was supposed to be a solid conservative, as was Roberts. And other justices who were supposed to vote reliably left have sometimes joined the other side.

There's something about being on the highest court of the land, setting precedents that can change the country, which might cause otherwise partisan people to actually focus on the law and move more to the center.
