11. Not Really

McConnell can ram it through in a lame duck session, even if he loses his seat and the 2021 Senate is controlled by Democrats. And there have been cases where a SC Justice was confirmed in the lame duck session but, I believe, they were all cases where the sitting President was re-elected. Lincoln did that in December 1864 after he had been re-elected.
