Unlike 2016, polling this year suggests Democrats more motivated by Supreme Court than Republicans

(CNN)The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has the ability to upend the 2020 presidential election. But while most analysis suggests President Donald Trump was helped by the opportunity to appoint a new justice in the 2016 election, polling this time around suggests something different may be in the offing.

I should point out that while it could shift in the days and weeks to come, polling initially shows that former Vice President Joe Biden's voters have been more likely to be fired up about Supreme Court selections and that voters overall trust Biden more on a Supreme Court selection.
A new Marquette University Law School poll paints the landscape well. Nationally, it finds that 59% of Biden voters say that appointing the next Supreme Court justice is very important to their vote. Compare that with only 51% of Trump voters.
This finding matches what we saw in a CNN/SSRS poll last month. In that poll, 78% of Biden backers told pollsters that nominating the next justice was extremely or very important to their vote. That compared with 64% of Trump supporters. (It was 47% Biden supporters and 32% Trump supporters who said it was extremely important.)

1. The few smart repukes left are not voting for dotard. His cult could give a shit less

I highly doubt they could tell you what SCOTUS means, what they do or even name half of the judges

2. We'd have done better to be concerned about SCOTUS in 2016.

We missed our chance to be concerned and to do something about it. Hillary would have been the one to appoint two or three justices, instead of Trump.

We fucked up. We were warned. We ignored the warnings.

3. Back in 2016 people here frequently pointed out

that the next President would be appointing Supreme Court Justices. Most people here got it, but I think out there in the great beyond of this country, that's not something that the average voter understands.

It may well be that this time around a lot more people get it.

4. Comey played the Death Card with

ten days to go. That was the major game change agent. Had Hillary made a Campaign run through the Midwest States on that last weekend,we would have Hillary making those picks.

Her Campaign managers did not serve her well at all in that last week.
