Today the Republicans are adamant that, even though new elections are only a couple of month's away, President Trump's nominee will receive a vote on the floor of United State's Senate.

On behalf of the Democrats, Senator Richard Blumenthal, using the same argument that the Republicans used in 1916, has called for Ginsburg's successor be appointed after the elections.

Senator Chris Himes also said that the precedent set by the Republicans in 1916 requires the body to wait for a new president to consider a replacement. He added:

"Should Republicans go forward and reverse this precedent, the Senate will never be the same. It will be changed forever. I pray tonight that at least a few of my Republican friends understand this".

I am sure most will understand. The question is, will they have the courage to act according to their convictions?
