I'm torn over the replacing of Ms Ginsberg before the end of the year. On one hand, it would insure a conservative justice replacing her.
On the other hand, it would give the left a lot of negative ammunition to go after Trump for trying to replace her after what McConnell did in 2016.
Trump doesn't need the extra distraction during the campaigning, along with the msm going after him relentlessly for trying.
If he was upfront and saying that he's going to hold off, it could give him some positive momentum in the eyes of the voters in the swing states.
What say you?

Replace her...

The left is totally unhinged and this will energize the conservative base to the hilt. Continued rioting is pushing people away from the democrat plantation and with the lawyers that Biden has hired a 4/4 split will not protect the US from a coup d'etat.

We have no choice but to fill the seat.

I don't think the decision to nominate a replacement justice is going to hurt Trump any, and whether the Senate confirms that person really isn't his responsibility. Where I think it falls more heavily is on the GOP senators who are running for re-election and are in tight races. They would be put into the difficult position of saying one way or the other how they would vote to confirm, and either way that position could hurt their candidacy. It's going to be a purely political decision, weighing the what happens if I do this vs what happens if I do that. I suspect everybody is ging to be doing a lot of polling and surveys over the next couple of weeks to see which way the wind is blowing.

I agree...

IF they vote with Trump they win re-election if they do not they dont... Three of the four fall into this category. Romney is already on his way out if recall is completed. I see it being a 50/50 split with Pence making the call.

Trump needs to act immediately. To see the Democrats come unhinged like they did with Kavanaugh, just weeks before the election, will remind people of who they really are. This is a no brainer for Trump.

Dems hate to "live in the past"...right?
They hate everything that was...it's all about "change" and "progression"...right?
Well, McConnell has followed their advice...he's changed his position and progressed.

I do not believe it would hurt Trump but McConnell and Senate GOP is a different story if they confirm his choice before this November Election...

McConnell kind of screwed the Senate GOP on this issue...

Excellent thoughts.

I heard that Murkoski has already stated she would not vote for it, RINO Romney hates Trump.

The deranged Democrat's already go after Trump 24/7/365 over everything and anything. One more item on their TDS hate list isn't going to make a difference. ... :cool:

Oh, I agree, fully, Sunni, but it's the drip, drip, drip this close to the election with fresh meat on the table.

Don't forget what Leningrad Lindsey said.

Zoom to :20 seconds, if you have the balls to watch this at all.

Republican hypocrisy at it's best.

Lindsey now supports going forward with nomination.

All I can say, Meis, is that when do Democrats ever worry about being fair, not putting party ahead of all else or ever worry about any of their dirty deeds biting them in the ass?

If Trump is going to win, he will win. He's not going to LOSE because he put a constitutionalist on the bench insuring years and years of rightful decisions.

Said it before, saying it again.

I have no problem with Trump announcing his choice in the near future.

I HOPE the Senate will not start the confirmation process until at least mid November, after the results of the election are in.

Full Senate vote to take place in mid December.
