Judge Appointments by Presidents - Reagan, Clinton, & Obama Winners

At a glance, Trump has a long way to go to have a majority Trump judges appointed. Also, Reagan et al leads the pack for judge appointments.

President Obama has the 2nd largest number of Judge Appointments, followed by Clinton.

Read footnotes for some clarifying notes.

I find this overview helpful.

******************************

Judgeships Appointments by 1980.

Roosevelt (1933-45) 207

Truman (1945-52) 140

Eisenhower

Johnson (1963-68) 176

Obama (2009-16) 334


Trump* (2017-2018) 85

*Appointments made by the current President are as of December 31, 2018.

As of December, 2019, there are now 200 Trump Appointments. Details here:

(4) The total represents the overall number of confirmations rather than judges. As a result, individual judges may be counted more than once.

For example, President Reagan appointed Antonin Scalia to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1982 and to the Supreme Court in 1986. Both appointments are included in the confirmations totals.

In addition, the counts for the USCFC and the territorial courts include judges reappointed after their terms expired.

Just more reason to keep him a 1 term president! If he is not re elected, his impact on the judiciary will be very limited. Otherwise, we can see him beat Obama's numbers.

3. What facts?

He has 200 now and at that rate he would have about 270 at the end of 4 years. That is almost as money as Obama did in a full 8 years.
