Are the folks at Politico delusional...? [View all]

I don't want to link to the article because I don't want to give it any more exposure, but they have a piece up suggesting that Trump is now "riding high" after RBG's death, and that the naming of a new Justice will be just what he needs to bring back a whole bevy of anti-abortion voters into his camp, "flipping the script" and possibly allowing him to pull off a come-from-behind victory in November (although they grant he has a tendency to "blow it" when put in a strong position).

My initial question: what strong position???

It seems to me that the notion that there is a yuge hidden army of right-to-lifers out there who aren't already firmly in his camp, and haven't been there since 2016, seems utterly fanciful at best. And, considering that the one poll that has come out so far shows respondents opposed to Trump being able to fill the vacancy by a 51%-42% margin, I utterly fail to see how it's going to net him a large share of voters who wouldn't have backed him until now -- in fact, it would seem to be more likely to hurt him with voters than help him.

Am I missing something here?
