President Trump appointed him.
He perjured himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He called out Democrats on the committee and criticized how they were handling his interviews. That s what turned people off of him. The anger was evident and demonstrated that he doesn t have the temperament to sit on the court. But, the Senate confirmed him anyway. There were plenty of other qualified candidates that the President could have nominated.
Many different reasons. And leftists have different reasons for opposing Kavanaugh, not all of them exactly alike.
For myself, I think Kavanaugh did lie to the Senate about his drinking habits and how out of control he was in high school and college; I think he might have lied about the meaning of items in his high school yearbook also. I think he's tried to clean up his drinking habits and his treatment of women since he graduated from Yale, so I don't think he's a sexual predator TODAY. But his refusal to really answer questions about the extent of his drinking in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, and his amazingly partisan attack on the Democrats at the hearing, tell me that he really shouldn't be on the Supreme Court.
To be honest, though, I opposed Kavanaugh long before the hearing. The reason is that I think his appointment to the Court means that it's going to be tilted conservative for the next 30 years or more. Many Trump supporters probably think this is great, but this is a case of "Beware what you wish for." The now apparently unshakeable conservative majority on the Court is not only likely to roll back abortion rights, to the cheers of the Catholic Church and the anti-abortion movement. It probably also will tilt pro-corporation, and against the average American who has a legitimate complaint against corporations, on many, many issues that some Trump supporters probably care about deeply.
For example, a Supreme Court with a solid, permanent conservative majority is likely to undercut what remains of Obamacare / the ACA. It's probably going to help corporations decimate & burn what remains of environmental protection regulations, including some that protect ordinary Americans from poisons in our drinking water. It's going to be hell on protections for working people - both those in labor unions and everyone else. And I think it will give Trump -- and whoever the next Republican president may be -- with more and more power to wage wars and sign trade agreements without the consent of Congress or consultation with the voters.
Those are reasons why I was against Kavanaugh even before I'd heard of Dr. Ford's claims that he tried to rape her when he and Mark Judge were drunken high school seniors. Dr. Ford's accusations and Kavanaugh's failure to respond to them adequately make him even worse in my eyes. But even if we had another conservative Republican justice on the Court in Kavanaugh's place, the American people would still face a future of greater pollution, fewer rights for working people and consumers, fewer protections for women and religious and racial minorities, and fewer checks and balances on the power of the "Imperial Presidency."

Uhhh... He's a rapist??? We don't like rapist skkkum being on the highest court of our nation??
I just don't like him.
Because he’s a partisan right wing hack and lacks the temperament to be a Supreme Court Justice. Also he probably gave Trump a loyalty oath
Because they want to kill unborn babies.
He was appointed by Trump, that gives more than enough reason for some
Sexual assault allegations,
And his partisan ways of attacking the left-wing and promising revenge.
As someone who is a bit left of center, I doubt I would agree with any nominee that conservatives proposed. However, as Republicans are in the majority in Congress, and the President is a Republican, I knew a conservative would be proposed and approved.
My specific objection t Justice Kavanaugh was his manner when talking about Democrats, Clintonites, conspriracists, etc. He was totally lacking in judicial demeanor. Some have explained his behavior as someone who was defending himself, but I disagree. It was too pat a response for someone who was angry at how he was treated. He was feeding red meat to Pres. Trump's supporters. All of us know that the Supreme Court is apolitical. I do not know why it bothered me so much when Justice Kavanaugh made it so obvious, but it did.
