The Democrats's position is not based primarily on "sour grapes." The reality is that Gorsuch did not provide satisfactory answers and he clearly is for corporations over people. The Democrats feel the Supreme Court is one of the few places individuals can be heard. Also funding from unidentified sources is pouring in to buy tv ads in support of him. Gorsuch said he didn't know and didn't care who was running the ads. The basis for the 60-vote rule to confirm a SC judge is to demonstrate some bi-partisan support. When McConnell goes nuclear (as I am sure he will), the Democrats should have long memories and should develop strong Democratic candidates in his state to ultimately oust him.
