Too little to late, given his disgusting remarks previously?

Or will this win voters over?
I suppose throwing Billions of dollars at them is better than throwing paper towels like he did before.

Michael Moore, who called Trump's victory more or less right, is saying that the Biden campaign in his home state of Michigan is even poorer than Hillary's was in 2016. Trump squeaked through in Michigan. Moore claims that there is little campaign presence on the ground and an almost total failure to engage with black and hispanic voters with most of the limited obvious attention being paid to try and take votes from Trump by focusing on Republican leaning undecideds.

Is that maybe down to the whole plague thing going on?

RBG has passed away. R.I.P.

Now, you understand McConnell's standing on appointing a SC judge? Merrick Garland?

Well, not anymore!

Trump's only chance of winning imho is via the courts, so they'll try cram another one through.

In fairness Moore is a doom monger, he was right about Trump but only because he kept predicting the worst.

I refuse to believe that the Dems wouldn't learn something from 2016. They're spending big where it needs to be spent. If they can flip Florida, Trump is done. Michigan can't save him.

Is there any chance that McConnell ramming through the federalist society's next judge will be the act that seals their doom in the White House and the senate?

Obviously the base will be happy I don't mean it will turn anyone but it may be an appalling enough act of hypocrisy and callousness so close to the election that it has an impact on any remaining fence sitters etc?

You can expect nothing from a pig other than a grunt so the nomination process will only go one way, this opportunity is too big for them to turn down but surely, surely this time there will be repercussions for how truly disgusting their behaviour is?

Maybe I'm being too naive.

Very good chance. There's a list of names out there already (read this on some RW rag this a.m.) Moscow Mitch has already released a statement that they would.

No I know he will, sorry you must have misunderstood the post. Without doubt he is going to fill that position, or at least he will be desperately trying, if you re read the post you'll see I'm asking what effect that might have on the election.

Pretty sh!tty thing to do, considering her dying wish was not to be replaced until the new president is elected

Aha my bad. Sorry didn't understand it, somewhat out of sorts this a.m. on the news hearing from friends&family in the US.
You raise a good point - why bother vote if this position is filled, if you're an evangelical? I guess the argument is the federal judges need to be converted, too, so there's always more 'work' to do.

I don't think the #IMPOTUS is fool enough (though, you never know) to NOT nominate an SC judge, using the 'vote me in or you're out of luck' argument. He will nominate someone.

Her dying wish is all well and good, but what does the law actually say? Haven’t seen anything about whether Trump is legally able to replace her before the election or not.

He can replace her up to the inauguration day next year (assuming he doesn't win.) Can be replaced whenever the Senate is in session to vote on it. He just nominates someone, can do that as early as today and you can be sure there's a list of names. Probably won't happen before next week, he'll want to make hay with the name.

Legally? of course he can fill her seat, and he will try. Not really him though, this is one of the scenarios that trump gets credit/blamed for when its actually very little to do with him.

The Federalist Society, hell Mcabe apparently have pretty much solely selected his picks (not just Supreme Court, all his judicial appointments), trump according to reports wanted to nominate Rudy Giuliani and other similarly bat**** crazy suggestions.

The Christian fundamentalists will not let this opportunity to take control of the legal branch completely slip by them without a big fight.
