Soon after Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Democrats flooded the Internet with demands on Donald Trump. From Chuck Schumer to Rob Reiner, liberals were ordering the president not to fill her seat before the election. But it seems all the threats only hardened Trump’s resolve, when he promised to do his duty and fill the seat. Despite leftist outrage it appears plenty of Americans want the fit filled ASAP.
The moment Trump learned of RBG’s passing was captured on video. The president, genuinely shocked, offered nothing but kindness and praise for the storied justice. Soon after, he issued an official statement, honoring Ginsburg’s life and accomplishments.
On the other hand, Democrats quickly took to social media to demand Trump and Senate Republicans wait until after the election to appoint a new justice. It’s funny, right? Since Trump is in power and Republicans have a majority in the Senate, Democrats want to conveniently wait until after the election—when, perhaps, Democrats get back power.
Remember when Democrats won back the House in 2018? Almost immediately they defied the will of the people to impeach Donald Trump over a phone call. They were so obsessed with their bogus impeachment, that they ignored this little thing called the coronavirus.
Yeah, something tells me Trump and the GOP don’t give two farts about what Democrats have to say. And the president let them know:
It’s possible Trump would have waited until after the election, had Democrats not promised “War” or that they’d “burn down” the country if he didn’t. By their reckless, childish responses, the left forced the president’s hand.
But what do regular Americans think? Democrats can whine all day long about how powerless they are, but what the public thinks is what really matters.
A solid majority of Americans across the political spectrum support holding hearings for Supreme Court nominees during a presidential year, according to a poll conducted just a few days ago…
“In this poll, conducted in the days before Ginsburg’s death, a substantial majority of respondents of both parties say that if a vacancy occurred during the 2020 election year, the Senate should hold hearings on a nominee, with 67 percent saying hearings should be held and 32 percent saying they should not be held,” Marquette Law School said.

Despite all the left’s bellyaching, it seems a large majority of Americans want the government to pick a new justice, regardless of the year.
The poll found that 68 percent of Republicans, 71 percent of independents, and 63 percent of Democrats think there should be hearings. Now, that Democrat number might be going down, since RBG’s death, but that’s still a solid majority.
While speaking at a rally in North Carolina, Trump brought up the vacancy. The audience was quick to share their thoughts.
If the crowd at President Trump’s Saturday rally in North Carolina was any indicator, the president’s supporters have already decided what he should do about the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Fill that seat!” the crowd chanted as the president spoke at Fayetteville Regional Airport about who he might nominate to succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the nation’s highest court. Ginsburg died Friday at age 87 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. [Source: Fox News]
Americans understand the significance of filling that seat. It seems they’d rather have it filled now, than wait for the uncertainty of a post-election process. Even Democrats seem to support doing it now, then waiting for months.
It seems the only group that is against is the very group that lost power years ago—and will stop at nothing to crawl it back. Even if it means violating the Constitution at every turn.
