Fait accompli. Might as well get it over with. However, I'd wait to see if the Gorsuch nomination can get through without it but a Kennedy or Ginsberg replacement will never get by the current rules.

If necessary. Frankly, I hope Trump can get the economy rolling along, cut some federal spending, etc. - but this........naming a SC pick and hopefully 1 or 2 more will be his biggest contribution (provided he gets 1 or 2 more picks)

If most people that didn't like Trump as much but were sure that they thought he would nominate a conservative judge and voted for him because of that, if the Demoncrat reps and senators in those states that Killary lost fail to endorse Gorsuch I think they'll be in trouble.

I'm sold on Trump now that he's the president, not as much before but that's pretty much the reason I voted for him.

I expect Gorsuch to be confirmed, probably by next month sometime in a narrow victory. My guess is 2-3 Democrats will vote to confirm him - the senator from West Virginia being one of them.

He'll need 8 Democratic votes.

Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, Jon Tester, Joe Donnelly and Jeanne Shaheen will support him.

Only need 3 others.

Bennett is from Colorado. He'll have to support him.

I also think that with 10 Dem Senators facing 2018 in states that went to Trump, they can vote for cloture and still vote no on the nomination, thus appeasing both sides. Hopefully that will be the way it plays out.

This is IMO, exactly how Gorsuch will play out... I see cloture being done after everyone gets their 30 minutes of questioning, unless something drastic appears during the confirmation hearings.
