    Trump should just wait until January to appoint the next Justice. Whats the hurry ?

    If Biden wins, the country will be in the toilet, so it won't matter.

    I would think that if Trump takes the high road and says the next POTUS should do the appointment, a lot of undecideds may go his way
    and the Demonrats will have nothing to bitch about

    President Trump needs to get an appointment out, and get him/her on the court.
    We do not want a split court to decide the election.
    Remember-- Roberts gave us Obama care

    Of course all politicians are lying scumbags, so I don't doubt the Republicans will try to get their pick approved before the election. But here is the rub. Because of all these changes by the Republicans, there are more changes that can come... especially if the Republicans lose the Senate & the presidency. Once again correct me if I'm wrong, but if that happens, can't the Democrats then add more justices to the court so that they can build their own majority? So even if the Republicans push thru a nominee, which I personally think would cause more Senate seats to go Democrat because of the obvious hypocrisy, the Democrats could change the structure of the court and still get their majority.

    Sorry I'm no expert on these matters, so I'm asking questions. Just saying, I think this could turn out really strange in the next year or so if my questions are correct. Hell I think the Democrats may change the structure even if no one gets approved before the election. Dirty tricks by the Republicans will come back to haunt them I'm afraid. Remember, payback is a bitch. Changing to a simple majority had some great short term benefits but that same change can cause great harm. May not happen this election cycle, depending on how the elections go, but this will come up sooner or later I'm afraid.
    I agree on the dirty tricks. That was the first thing I thought of. Goose meet Gander. The election is going to be insane.

    Remember it was the democrats that changed the rules. Once you change the rules you must live by them. Unless you are a democrat. Democrats can thank them self if trump get an appointment in the seat

    Article II, Section 2 is pretty clear on the fact that the President selects the Judges of the supreme Court and the Senate approves. Pretty simple actually.

    Section. 2.



    The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.



    He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.



    The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    It means a lot. Filling as many openings with conservative justices is likely more important than anything else Trump or McConnel can do.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but you are not actually a conservative are you?

    The Republicans will not have the necessary 51 votes.
    Romney will do anything to screw Trump.

    I heard this morning that at the moment Trump can only count on 48.
