The results of the Rasmussen poll of Sept. 21 show that 83 percent of Republican voters want President Donald Trump to appoint Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s successor to the Supreme Court.
The replacement of Ginsburg, who died on Sept. 18 from pancreatic cancer she had suffered for years, has caused a confrontation by the Democrats who are asking for the next Supreme Court justice to be appointed after the election.
Democrats have even suggested that they would violently attack the Senate if their wishes are not met.
Despite political differences with Ginsburg, President Trump mourned her death and expressed his admiration for her.
“She led an amazing life. Whether you agree or not, she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life,” Trump said upon learning of her death, according to a White House report.
The opposing attitude of the Democrats, in this case, is contradictory for Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel. “Not long ago, Joe Biden said that ‘the American people deserve a nine-person court with a full staff. We agree. Fill the seat,” McDaniel said, according to Breitbart.
It is clear to Trump that he must fill the vacancy left by Ginsburg as part of his constitutional obligations.
Although Ginsburg from her progressive position defended women’s legal rights—this Rasmussen survey does not show a big difference between women’s and men’s approval.
Ginsburg even received criticism during the 2016 presidential campaign for publicly oppose then-candidate Trump, thus breaking the tradition that considered this type of behavior to be inappropriate.
According to a statement submitted by Ginsburg’s granddaughter, she wished, shortly before her death, that her vacancy be filled by a justice appointed by the winner of the Nov. 3 presidential election.
In the face of this statement, political commentator Tucker Carlson’s attitude was one of disbelief, or at least he said that if Ginsburg’s last wish was about the presidential election then that would be pathetic since life is more than just politics.
“We don’t really know actually what Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s final words were. Did she really leave this world fretting about a presidential election? We don’t believe that for a second. If it were true, it would be pathetic because life is bigger than politics,” tweeted the Daily Caller quoting Tucker’s words.
