    Sure, packing the court is Constitutional. However, just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. I would simply ask them if they would accept Donald Trump packing the Court. Or, is that Constitutional power only reserved for leftists? On one hand, the Founders never intended nor imagined that the Court would become the most powerful branch of government. In fact, they argued it was the least powerful. On the other hand, Article 3 clearly states that Congress has complete control over every aspect of the federal judiciary. It can reign in the power of the Court at any moment. However, the Founders probably never imagined that Congress would defer all of their decision making to both the Executive and the Court.

    And these people have the right to vote? Democracy itself is cruel and unusual punishment.

    I'm not sure why Scalia is held up as the gold standard for originalism. He was much less reliable on federalism than someone like Thomas. Regardless, ACB is an electoral liability. Trump better hope she gets confirmed very soon so the news cycle can change away from her. Her judicial philosophy has much to be desired. I wouldn't be shocked if she turned out to be another Roberts.

    I can't believe we are still taking polls seriously. They over sample, under sample, make wrong assumptions and miss key demographics that decided the election four years ago. And Jo will be lucky to win 2%.

    On one hand, the vast majority of US citizens are leftists to some degree. There is virtually no true mainstream right wing dissent in this country. Contemporary conservatives, Republicans and classical liberals all represent leftism to some degree. Therefore, it is not shocking that the majority of people dislike Trump. On the other hand, mainstream polls are using flawed assumptions and outdated models. This happened in 2016 and it looks to be worse in 2020. Trump's base is not represented in polling whatsoever. Whether this is intentional or not is up for debate.

    I don't see why not. The days of Pennsylvania electing crusty old establishment GOPers to statewide offices are over.

    The vast majority of likely voters have already made up their minds at this point. This election is (and always was) about turnout of the base. I'm not so sure this development actually changes anything electorally. With that said, I hope and pray for a speedy recovery. The thought of a Harris or Pence administration for the next four years is frightening.

    "Debate" in this context is simply the common vernacular. It won't change anytime soon.

    You misunderstand the situation. "Trumpism" is the working class. Trump saw an opportunity to appeal to millions of people who had no voice and were not represented by anyone in Washington. Whether he truly believes in a working class agenda (anti-war, populist economics, reduced immigration, etc.) or not is irrelevant. If you find "Trumpism" distasteful or repugnant, then maybe your problem isn't with Trump himself, but an entire socio-economic class of Americans. I sympathize with this argument. However, most people choose blue, red or white pills. Very few enjoy the black one.
