They can’t delay it. The election results will obviously be disputed. We need continuity of government. The election results will most likely be decided by the supreme court. There has to be a tie breaker for government to continue.
@BeMuse I don't see how you can say that's what most likely will happen. Only a very specific set of circumstances could cause it to happen.I'm not sure how this would be done, but I suspect the ruling in 2000 would still stand. That ruling basically compelled the states to make a decision one way or another, and do it in time for the electors to meet.I suspect that lack of a new ruling would not change the previous one.
There’s only 328 million results for 2020 election going to supreme court in the search results. That’s the media narrative priming people for that eventual confrontation… 2000 was over a recount in certain counties conflicting with the equal protection clause… 2020 is a debate over blanketed mail in ballots and their legitimacy. There is no way around it as this point. The waters have been muddied by Democrats to create that eventual conflict. A decision by legal authority will need to be made.
@BeMuse But lack of a decision means it stays the way it is. This is decided at the state level. That will continue unless there is an explicit ruling to change it.

I think the Senate is going to be a little more concerned with the nominee's philosophies and beliefs than her skin color or gender. If you were to say Trump needs to nominate a liberal activist who believes in and wuill work to advance the rights of women and minorities, then I would agree that nominee should be unanimously voted in by the senate to honor RBG AND TO CONTiNUE HER WORK.
Unfortunately the senate will choose to vote based on deals and party lines because that’s the current state of politics. Justices used to receive 100 votes back in the day. So regardless of their beliefs or skin color, whomever is nominated will get pushed through based on politics and not their qualifications sadly.
So then I guess the question is what's the point of saying Presdient Trump should nominate such and such if you already know there's no chance the senate would ever approve it? And you and I both know Trump's not going to nominate anyone McConnell doesn't tell him in advance will be approved.
Oh my point is if he nominated a black women the Dems would be stuck. If they fight the nomination then trump shows the fight and wins more black votes in November. But if the Dems concede and vote for his nominee, trump wins and can say it’s confidence in his ability to lead the nation.
Don't kid yourself. If it's a deeply conservative judge, the Democrats would have no problem voting against her and it wouldn't affect the black vote one bit. Blacks aren't as dumb and gullible as Trump and his loyalists seem to believe. They know when they're being pandered to. Just like all this bullshit Trump's followers keep trying to get to stick that Biden is the hard core racist and it's really Trump who has done more for blacks than any other president including Lincoln. The only people buying that are other Trumptards no matter how hard the republicans try to push it. Trust me, blacks know a real racist when they see one.
Do you actually believe that Trump would seriously consider nominating a woman of color to the Supreme Court? Hell would have to freeze over, thaw, and then freeze again before that happened.
