    I don't claim to have a crystal ball- probably will depend on what happens in the next year.

    Color me shocked- the OP was a lie.
    The administration is vetting and submitted judges for vacancies on the federal bench in record numbers.

    Trump has nominated a total of 24 judges- out of 136 vacancies. 19 out of the 24 were nominated in June or July.

    So of course- its all the Democrats fault.....lol.

    How many of the nominees have the Democrats halted? 1? 2? 3?

    Current Judicial Vacancies
    Total Vacancies:136

    Total Nominees Pending:24

    The point is, once they are moved out of committee, they usually win by margin of 80% plus.
