If Trump gets this pushed through then the election doesnt matter much after that.

President Trump should take the high road for once and not try to cram this through. He should acknowledge the hypocrisy it would represent to try, take the time to honor RBG, and tell voters that he even though he is confident of a 2020 victory, we are going to hold our nomination for SCOTUS until after the election is decided.

Trying to cram this through is not worth the votes it will cost. Just the fact that there is a Supreme Court justice in the balance of this election results will be motivation for every Republican to get out and vote.
They arenít going to take that chance. It will get done ASAP

Gotta admit, was glad to hear there's another opportunity for Trump to put another conservative on the SC. And all the "RIP's" seem pretty surreal. Does anybody really think she's resting in peace right now? As far as how it affects the election, get ready for the left and the media to gnash their teeth more than ever. Crazy year.

The Democrats hate it when the Republicans treat them the way Democrats treat the Republicans and the American people. Conservative Republicans don't see the country the same way as the left wing Democrats and there doesn't seem to be a path forward to reconcile our differences at this point. This is the perfect time to appoint a new judge and the people better wake up and realize now more than ever that elections have consequences.

Here is Cruz's take on the situation and I agree with him 100%.
People better wake up and realize this is a fight for our country and a very real possibility for our actual lives.

Many of you are missing the mark entirely when it comes to McConnell. He said back in 2009 that you would have to go all the way back to the F
Grover Cleveland’s administration ,late 1800s, to find A Supreme Court justice who was confirmed By a senate opposite the presidents party, during an election year.

Are any of you guys even paying attention to what’s going on in our country. You think that somehow Trump being able to appoint three justices in his first term a coincidence.

I am floored that some of you guys think this is just another election.

Push it through regardless of past practice. The incumbent wasnít running in 2016, so the quote is not apples to apples. He better make sure itís a truly conservative judge because from here on out, I think the Supreme Court is gonna get really busy.

Forcing this vote before the election would drive the left insane, causing them to flip the senate. Trump may have it in the bag, but the senate isnt in the same boat.

Watch this video of Lindsey Graham. That seems pretty ironclad that he wonít vote for a nomination before an election. And heís the current chairman of the judiciary committee. And heís in a contested senate race. Will he flip flop and consider a nomination before the election and risk his chances of re-election? The senate can lose 3 votes and still push the nomination through. You know Romney will be one of those 3. Will Trumpís chosen nominee even accept the nomination under these controversial circumstances. It isnít as simple as Trump and McConnell agreeing to push it through. There are at least 49 other senators the need to convince. It looks like there are I think 23 republicans up for senate re-election this year and 11 of those are contested races. How many of those senators are willing to put their necks on the line to push this through?

Cruz isnít up for re-election this year so he can say whatever he wants. And heís unlikely to lose his seat anytime soon no matter what he does so thereís no risk to him. The same canít be said for the other 52 republican senators.

The Senators at risk will not bring it to a vote if they think there is a chance of this causing them to lose their seat. 3 can vote no(save their seat) and Pence can still cast the deciding vote. Or 3 can not vote on it at all and the nomination passes 50-47. We all know Romney will not be on board so there are two spots to play with.

Exactly. Is a Supreme Court seat worth losing the senate majority. I would say most definitely yes, but can you convince the republican senators who are in tight election races to vote yes and potentially become sacrificial lambs and lose their seats for the greater good.

Iíve got to imagine being a senator is pretty awesome and it would be difficult to voluntarily jeopardize your seat for the greater good. How many of them are that noble? Theyíre all career politicians so that number has got to be close to zero.

So much wrong with peoples posts in this thread......

First - It's not like this was a sudden death no one saw coming. Heck most thought she would have died 10 years ago and then again 4 years ago..and then 1-2 years ago. Simply amazing she lasted as long as she did. So the new pick should have been picked out years ago.

Second - Did someone really say Rep's shouldn't do something or they would be hypocrites? LOL

Third - What have we come to when we all already know Dems will fight,sue etc the election results? Think about how stupid that is for a minute. Don't try to fix whatever issue there is. Instead leave it grey so you can fight when you don't win.

4th - All this talk about Senate seats scared of not getting re-elected. They need to know if they don't push for this they will NOT be re-elected. It works both ways.

the 9th seat could be is critical if we have a contested election.
What the heck is wrong with our memories? If the situation were flipped, the Dems would happily jam a knife right through both your cheeks and watch you suffer.
Trump was completely ready for this, he knew the clock was tickin.

The senate can lose 3 votes and still push the nomination through. You know Romney will be one of those 3. Will Trumpís chosen nominee even accept the nomination under these controversial circumstances. It isnít as simple as Trump and McConnell agreeing to push it through. There are at least 49 other senators the need to convince. It looks like there are I think 23 republicans up for senate re-election this year and 11 of those are contested races. How many of those senators are willing to put their necks on the line to push this through?

Cruz isnít up for re-election this year so he can say whatever he wants. And heís unlikely to lose his seat anytime soon no matter what he does so thereís no risk to him. The same canít be said for the other 52 republican senators.

If Lindsey graham tries to hold this up in any way. Heís done. DONE

Even if Trump wanted to do something before election people like this will come into play.

This will be interesting to watch play out for sure. I don't have an immidiate "we should absolutely do this or that". I was in legislative policy and politics for 18 years. There are unlimited brilliant stratigists who will brainstorm this out for a decision. You're probably not one of them. There are so many dozens of considerations needed for more dozens of consequences (positive or negative) for one person to get it right on day one. Man, I'd love to be in on those discussions. Strategy was my delight back in the day and opposing views to achieve the same goal were always fascinating. When coming from smart people I respect, and likewise from them, it's a beautiful process.

As far "dance on her grave"? Come on guys. Agree or not agree with her views, this is a human with a family. You don't know her relationship with Christ when we took her last breath. Try a "what would Jesus do" gut check here.

Whatever Trump does will be right, he's outflanked the so-called "experts" every time!

But what does “without delay” mean? I feel he is toying with the left and it will not be filled until November 4th or longer
