May be. However, it depends which voters view it as most sacred to them. Politics is dirty, I don't know the right manner to go, I'm not an American with a vote, though I would probably want the election to be about the vote for the President and for it to be delayed until after the election. That's just me.Voters will look at it as a complete betrayal by MCConnell, who said 10 months before election is too close before an election to make such a decision. They will take it out on Senate Republicans and on trump.Who?This will motivate every voter to get out and vote. Suspect they will have control of Supreme Court, but not likely to win the Presidency or keep the Senate.He really has no choice politically. If he doesn't put a butt in that seat, the Democrats probably take the Senate because clearly that is the prize. They may take it anyway but instead of academic ideas about what a Democratic Controlled Senate would do...it would be you elect this...you get that or you get 4 years of "no" if the blob wins. The hypocrisy may cost R's the senate but he'll keep his seat. He may lose that if he were to not be a hypocrite.
McConnell: Trump's Supreme Court nominee 'will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate'Senate Republicans have signaled that they would likely fill a vacancy to the Supreme Court ahead of the presidential election, but it is unclear whether the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will change their stance.www.foxnews.com
This is going to start a whole new round of crazy!
What if Trump says "let's wait until after the election"? That is going to ensure they ALL vote. Even the RINOS will be cornered.
If Trump does it before, he chooses a woman and gains more female votes. He's in a win/win situation.
However, Trump is a different cat. He doesn't care about politics long term, he wants to win in 2020. He will choose the best path to victory, whatever that is deemed. He also would love to have a lasting impression on his legacy, behind standing up to China.
I've heard CBC report the whole CNN narrative that "RBG wants to choose the replacement to be from whoever wins the election". I mean, why would anyone even go down that road to raise that? She is a S.C nominee, she isn't the president, whether she said it or not (which I suppose is debatable), it's not of significance, that isn't her job.
