Merrick Garland, a nominee for Supreme Court Justice by President Obama, had his confirmation hearing delayed more than a year in the name of a Presidential election.

It would be political suicide if Trump & McConnell didn't fill the vacancy, because that's what their voting base wants. Can you imagine how upset they would be if they didn't fill it and Biden won the election?
THIS.

It doesn’t matter how much you hate Trump, or find it incredibly unfair that Garland didn’t get a vote, but it would be seen as a massive negative by theiir base if Trump/McConnell did not move forward with a vote.
Politically they HAVE to push forward a vote. Anyone should be able to understand that, although everyone will not like it.

But people did have a voice already. That was one of the things that Trump ran on specifically which was to fill court vacancies with constitutional judges as quickly as possible.

Man this is such a great example of how blindly biased this board is. You guys are all literally saying the same rules should not apply to Republicans as apply to Democrats. There's not many here who seem to have much level of self-awareness so I'm sure just the few Ds and people who lean slightly right are able to see it and call it what it is. And it's not at all surprising because this board has shown time and again an ability to perform Shannon Miller levels of mental gymnastics. Still, pretty impressive.
