Majority of voters say Trump should not nominate a Supreme Court justice: poll

A majority of voters say President Trump should not nominate a Supreme Court justice this year, according to a snap poll released Saturday by YouGov.

The poll came less than a day after the U.S. Supreme Court announced liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening of complications from pancreatic cancer.

The poll found that 51 percent of voters believe Trump should not nominate another justice this year, while 42 percent said he should move forward with a nominee. A slight majority, 48 percent, believe the Senate should not confirm a nominee this year. Forty-five percent said the upper chamber should.

Forty-nine percent of respondents said they believe Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would "do a better job" picking a Supreme Court nominee, while 40 percent said Trump would. Eleven percent of respondents were undecided.

1. 51/42, which happens to be exactly the Biden/Trump average in the national polls.

What a coincidence!

It's a bit depressing that apparently not even a tiny fraction of Republicans see anything wrong with it.

5. I would feel differently about it if mcconman hadn't left scalia's seat open for a year.

If it wasn't OK for Obama to replace scalia in an election year, then it's not OK for trump to replace Ginsburg.

Republicans are ruthless and don't give a fuck about rules, fairness or consistency.

Democrats need to learn from this, and find as many structural exploits as possible to destroy the republican party. Statehood for DC and Puerto Rico, abolish the electoral college, pack the courts, RICO investigations into Trump and the RNC. The works. If the republican party is allowed to survive in its current form, the US isn't going to.
