Voters need to vote so they cannot pet this current non-conservative, far right GOP mess up the country.

You certainly have a point here. If the D's win a Senate majority, even if Trump is Triumphant on 3 November, there will be little point in the President making court appointments or others that require Senate confirmation.

Too little too late. EnjoyTrumps 3rd S C pick.
If he gets approval, it will be by a razor thin margin.

Murkowski, Collins, Romney and eventually Kelly will defeat it

Its not too late, he's not going to succeed
Why not?

According to Section 2, Article 2, Constitution of the United States, the President is granted the power to appoint judges. Nowhere does it mention when the appointment should be made, only that it requires approval by a majority of the Senate. It doesn't mention "after the election," Chuck Schumer's or Nancy Pelosi's permission or even Ruth Bader Ginsburg's "fervent wishes." Here's the gist of the Article.

......... The Appointments Clause grants the president the power to appoint judges and public officials subject to the advice and consent of the Senate, which in practice has meant that presidential appointees must be confirmed by a majority vote in the Senate........

Wrong. Nominate, and force through while they still have control. If you have a bunch of lame duck senators with nothing to lose then Trumps nomination is a shoe in.

Collins is beat either way...

Romney and Murkowski will cave just like Graham. If they cost us a seat on the Supreme Court they'll be history faster than you can say banana split. It's a political decision, not an ethical conundrum. They'll do the calculus and come to the politically expedient conclussion. You know it and I know it.

You forget one small item. The Republicans voted in the art of the Filibuster. And the Dems can tie it up for the next few months that way each and every time it comes to the floor. With the Senate, basically, coming to a screeching halt anyway, who would even notice that it's not doing anything. At least some noise would be coming from the Senate floor.

1. The hearings will be before the election.
2. The senate vote will be after the election
3. Trump's pick will be seated no matter how the senate majority turns out, there is no filibuster for confirmations. Thank you Harry Reid.

Do you think McConnell has the votes after the election?

In a Republic, actually

“A Mark Kelly win in Ariz. Senate race could spoil McConnell's plans to replace Ginsburg”

Actually not.

The confirmation vote will take place in the Republican majority lame duck Senate, before the new session of Congress starts.

Such is the reprehensible right.

Yes, after the election the Republican senators have no reason to vote against ACB.
Before the election some senators in tight races don't want to rile moderate (hopefully "Law & Order") voters.

If Kelly wins he will be seated November 30th filling McCain's seat.
So Mitch would need to have the vote before 11/30.

Very true

We don’t know what their frame of mind or political loyalties will be after the election.

Mitt Romney would probably still be anti Trump
Murkowsky has already said she doesn’t want to reverse her position in 2016..... let the people decide who fills the seat
Collins will be interesting.....She definitely won’t vote before the election. If she loses she may go either way.

If Kelly wins in Arizona, he can take his seat in November
