So How’s This Supreme Court Nomination Going To Play Out?

And what’s it going to mean for the Presidential election?

The most likely path we see is for Trump to nominate someone before Election Day to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, but the Senate not to vote on that nomination until after. That is, during the session that will take place between Election Day in November and Inauguration Day in January. That way people will be asked to vote not just for Trump, but also for his Supreme Court nominee.
