Jackson confirmation gives embattled Biden a much-needed win

President Biden, who has battled low poll numbers all year, scored a big and much-needed win on Capitol Hill Thursday when the Senate voted 53 to 47 to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve as the first Black woman on the Supreme Court.


Democratic lawmakers heading into a tough midterm election hope the victory will give Biden some political momentum, boost his sagging approval rating and energize their party base.
