Sam Stone has a point though. Ginsburg and Roberts were both scandal-free nominees and yet the former only got 3 Republican "no" votes while the latter had 22 Democratic "no" votes. So, even leaving Thomas and Kavanaugh aside, there is indeed a clear trend of evidence that Democrats vote more along the lines of ideology than Republicans do. You could be a scandal-free, clean conservative nominee for SCOTUS and there would still be Democratic Senators who would vote against you because you are.....conservative. (Namely, because you would represent a legal threat to Roe, etc.)
