Tennessee may be a red state but Nashville is anything but a red city.

So yes, it wouldn't surprise me if the (D's) were in total control in the future, they try to get liberal activist judges on the scotus by increasing the number who serve on the SC.

And Trump supporters completely ignoring what the GOP did with Merrick Garland.

"The GOP knows xxxx well if this were a Presidential year, McConnell would be rushing through a nominee before the election regardless of his prior statement. You know he would. Stop pretending the Garland obstruction was anything other than preventing Obama from getting an appointment."

Can We Stop Pretending?

So if Kennedy left in 2020, I would prefer Trump not replace him. Its not a POTUS race year, so Biden rule does not apply.

The courts are going to go full right wing and it's going to be bad, but the red states will suffer the most, as they should. But what Trump is doing globally and to our environment is a crying shame.
Oh, you got a bad case of TDS. Itís going to be a loooong 6 1/2 more yrs for you. Stock up on tissues.

Exactly. She would nominate a gay,transsexual, latina feminist, who was separated from her illegal immigrant parents, and harassed by white, Christian ICE officers. It would be a bonus if she only got into law school because of affirmative action, and, having graduated at the bottom of her class, blamed it on the results of white privilege of those ahead of her.

A perfect candidate for liberals!

In 2010, one conservative outlet named it the most conservative county in the U.S.

That has changed a bit during this decade, but Trump still got about 2/3 of the vote.

It does not. There is nothing in the Constitution that prevents Congress & the President from packing the court. The last President who tried it was FDR.

Both sides will be much more polarized and will break a lot of traditions of how the federal government has functioned.
Ultimately--I think the democrats will want to abolish the supreme court because "social justice" is far more important than the rule of you know..actual law..
