Roberts took no action on them while Kavanaugh's nomination was pending.
"You just never know what this President might do", Dr Bullock said.
The 13-point gap is almost double the seven-point advantage Democrats had in a Quinnipiac poll released October 2, before the Senate voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after a bruising partisan battle.
