Suck on that, Dimwingers. Not just Republicans, but a majority of Dimwingers and Independents support replacing Ginsberg now.

People favor confirmation hearings for Supreme Court vacancy in 2020: Poll

A new poll conducted shortly before the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed that an overwhelming majority of U.S. adults of all political stripes supported holding hearings for a nominee if a vacancy opened on the nation's highest bench.


Marquette University released the survey results on Saturday that showed 67% of adults believed the Senate should hold a hearing if a vacancy occurred during 2020's race, with only 32% opposition — and similar strong numbers across Republicans, Democrats, and independents, who supported holding confirmation hearings at 68-31%, 63-37%, and 71-28% respectively. The poll was completed three days before the death of Ginsburg, the 87-year-old liberal icon who was nominated by President Bill Clinton and confirmed in 1993. Ginsburg earned praise from Democrats and Republicans upon news of her death.

Ginsburg’s death in the middle of 2020's election drew comparisons to the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the 79-year-old conservative icon, Ronald Reagan appointee, and longtime Ginsburg friend, who died in February 2016 during the Democratic and Republican primaries. President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, to fill Scalia’s vacancy that March. But Senate Republicans declined to hold confirmation hearings or a vote, arguing that they wouldn’t confirm a justice appointed by a lame-duck president of the opposite party and that the winner in the 2016 election should fill the vacancy.

It only makes sense. Many people, including myself voted for the president and expected him to appoint a new Justiice if Ginsberg died. Well, she died and now Trump has to nominate her successor. That is HIS job, not his successor's.

If this poll is real, it speaks volumes for the Republican votes.

Perhaps this poll will change the mind of the three Republicans that were going to go against Trump on holding the vote. I know Murkowski is up for a vote in November...Don't know about Romney.

Agreed, we need to put a new Supreme Court Justice on the vacant bench as soon as possible. The troubling thing is the left's response to the possibility of a Trump nominated candidate. Their response: War....burn it all down....lay siege to Congress. Time to bring in a large organization that swore and oath to support and defend the U. S. Constitution, the military. Place them in large metropolitan areas and have the federal government do what they did with the state police in Oregon; federally deputize them and also put them into the large metropolitan areas. If anyone starts acting non-peacefully, grab them up, toss them into federal custody and keep them there, while preparing for "sedition" trials.
This nation has, through many generations, prided itself on its ability to not only have civil dialogue, but also a peaceful transition of power. However, thanks to the left's behavior through these last three and a half years, a peaceful transition would be an insult to every armed service member that fought and died against Marxism in Korea and Vietnam.

The same could have been said about Obama & his nominee.

Don't know why we play games with this bullshit.

Obamas nominee was blocked because the gop held the senate just as trumps would be if the left had control.

We ALL need to stop with the bullshit games and just be fucking honest.

I don't think you'll have a lot of Dims in this thread. Wonder why?
Tired of pointing the hypocrisy of Trump's minions in multiple threads, I guess.
You are partially right but you know damn well if the left can do what the right did under Obama you would support it despite probably bitching about it when it happened to Obama.

People need to stop with the bullshit. WE ALL KNOW its based in partisanship and ideology NOT RULES

Agreed. But my comment still makes sense.

The Democrat response should be fight fire with fire.

If a blatant power grab 6 weeks from the election is the Trumpian game, let President Biden appoint three more justices.

The constitution doesn’t say anything about how many justices may sit on the SCOTUS.

If the nominee is Any Barteltt, they had better be careful. She's a mother of 7 (^women,) five of her own and two Haitian children she and her husband adopted (^immigrants). He resume is great and everyone is ready for the left to degrade a mother, family of 7 and show the true colors again.

The William Barr hearing should probably give us a taste of what it might be like. Someone should tell her to breathe easily, just wait for them to stop being asses and then ask "Do you want me to respond? You'll have to stop talking so I can."

In other words, don’t do what the Republicans did to Obama.

That would ensure there will be Republican landslides from now on...
