Forgive our fascination with comparative statistics, but found some interesting stuff on selected Supreme Court final Senate confirmation votes:

John Paul Stevens, 1975: 98-0
Sandra Day O’Connor, 1981: 99-0
Antonin Scalia, 1986: 98-0
Anthony Kennedy, 1987: 97-0
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 1993: 96-3
Stephen Breyer, 1994: 87-9
