Senate Republicans backed off cloture votes in September

This article notes that Republican Senators backed off their previous strategy "to brand Democrats as obstructionists by scheduling nine cloture votes [in September] on President Bush’s federal appellate-court nominees."

In my view, this reflects the reality that any voters who are outraged over the Democrats' obstructionist tactics are likely to be died-in-the-wool Republicans anyway. I doubt that many "swing voters" will be influenced by this issue.
