i think they set a precedent for waiting till the election ends during the Obama years... it will be interesting to see if the republicans flip flop on that one..

The reason that the Senate didn't hold hearings for an Obama appointment is that the Senate was in Republican hands so no one that Obama nominated would have been confirmed.

The situation right now is obviously completely different because the Senate and Presidency are controlled by the same party. McConnell should ram through a confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett at warp speed. It is particularly critical now because the Supreme Court may be the only body that can prevent the Democrats from stealing the election via mail-in ballot fraud.

i agree we should put a new judge on the bench asap.. i am not so sure the dems are going to let it happen, even if they set the precedent in their own interest to prevent a denial of confirmation, they will use it to prevent a republican confirmation as well... hope i am wrong or that trump just some how manages to come up "winning" again...

The American people do have a say in the selection of Supreme Court justices, because they vote for Presidents who nominate them and Senators who confirm them.

Hope that helps.

Of course the Democrats will try to stop it because a solid conservative majority on the court will stop them from stealing the election.
But they can't do anything about it if the Republicans have 50 Senate votes in favor (not counting Pence).
