Should the Senate confirm a new Supreme Court justice to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
Jon Servant selected No
I believe the Senate set a precedent four years ago and is duty-bound to uphold it. I recognize the desire to take advantage of today's situation but feel it is wrong to flip-flop like this. The Senate leadership is not instilling confidence in it's ability to be acting in the nation's best interest.
ROBERT BUSH selected Yes
There is no reason not to confirm her immediately. The President has the obligation to replace the vacancy as soon as possible. Any notion that is different is false. The Constitution is very clear on the subject.
There is no reduction of duties or rights of anyone other than the sitting President to make the selection. It does not matter if he is reelected or we have a new President. It is the responsibility of the sitting President to nominate the new Justice until that President is replaced on January 20, 2021.
Debra Salzsieder selected No
THEY SHOULD WAIT UNTIL AFTER ELECTION
Chuck selected Yes
No one on the left ever complained when there was a liberal majority. Do I detect a scent of hypocrisy on the air?
Anonymous selected Yes
Lou Pasquesi selected Yes
The constitution requires that a new judge should be appointed by the president. The democrates sighted this rule when they were in power.
Peter Newton selected Yes
President Trump will do exactly what President Obama did in the last months of his presidency--name a Supreme Court nominee. Then it will be up to the Senate to decide what to do. President Obama did not have a democrat majority in the Senate and, as was its prerogative, the Senate declined to act. If the democrats had the senate majority, does anyone believe they would have refrained from voting on President Obama's nominee? Of course they would have. We need a full complement of Justices on the Court, especially with the legal challenges that will be addressed after the election regardless of who wins. The Senate should give its advice and consent as required in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the Constitution.
