We asked readers about the hot topic this week on whether or not the President should nominate an individual quickly to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court; and, if he does offer the Senate a nominee, should they act on confirmation quickly? Well, hundreds of you shared your views!
There were strong views on both sides, but weighted to not acting quickly to offer a nominee.
77% strongly disagreed with a quick nomination by the President and 18% strongly favored a nomination now.
As for the Senate acting, 77% strongly disagreed with moving forward with confirmation quickly, while 17% strong agreed with the Senate acting quickly.
Lastly, asked whether the decision to nominate a Supreme Court justice should be left to the winning Presidential candidate following the November election, 72% agreed and 26% disagreed with the notion.
One quick note, a few asked about why the stars would all appear if they selected “Strongly Agree.” We acknowledge a straight multiple choice question might have been better; however, each respondent’s choice was captured as you can see from the reporting above. Thanks for being vigilant about insuring accurate reporting.
