A justice needs to be named and confirmed prior to the election in case the election is contested.  A 4-4 tie would be bad.  Maybe Trump can make a recess appointment?

A week ago Trump said he has his Supreme Court list and challenged Biden to name his list.   
I doubt the nominee list will change anyone's vote, since most on it won't be known by most people. 
  
If the GOP can get 51 senators to agree, they could get it through, just in case Biden wins.   
The Dems don't play fair, so just do it, if possible.   
 
The negative is it will take time away from campaigning and if Trump wins there wiil be time.

Merrick Garland.

That would blow everyone's mind. He can't be as liberal as RBG. Democrats would have a hard time opposing since they pitched a fit about it 5 years ago.

Sorry, but that is loser think.

If Trump did that he would lose his base.

We have a president, elected, who stands ready to nominate a new justice. We also have a senate, elected, that stands ready to give them hearings. Let's do what we have always done in the past given these circumstances: proceed.

51 to 49 seats a new justice.  Given the Dem's plans to screw with the results, do we really want it to go to SCOTUS who potentially decides 4 to 4?

Biden did say he was working on a list of qualified black women. It is time to share.

This is the type of disaster that leads to Nancy Pelosi as President.

I think Trump should make the nomination in about 10 to 12 days, thereby allowing time for RBG to be buried and have the ceremonies over with.  Then, leave it up to Mitch to decide whether to hold the vote before or after the election.  Mitch should only hold the vote before the election if he is CERTAIN of having the nominee confirmed.

Otherwise, he should wait until after the election.  Having a supreme court nominee issue is a strong issue for the Trump party, IMO.  It could not only help Trump, but also help Senate and House Pubs to win their races.  This issue, combined with continued efforts to open the economy and put people back to work will help to blunt the unfair criticism over Coronavirus that the left continues to try to blame on Trump.
