The 2020 Presidential election could decide the trajectory of the Supreme Court for the next generation.
86-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsberg has been rumored to retire after the 2020 election.
And now this big hint about the next Supreme Court Justice will leave you speechless.
In the 2016 election, Donald Trump rallied the conservative base to his campaign by promising to nominate only conservative justices.
To prove he was serious about the matter, the Trump campaign released a list of potential nominees – all of whom were stars in the conservative world – which Trump pledged to choose from.
That maneuver helped Trump drive conservative base turnout through the roof and powered his surprise victory over Hillary Clinton.
Joe Biden – who is facing his last stand in South Carolina – looked to recreate that magic.
Biden is counting on running up the margins with black voters – they make 60 percent of the South Carolina Democrat electorate – to hold off a surging Bernie Sanders and give his candidacy life heading into Super Tuesday.
To that end, Biden promised during the South Carolina debate to nominate a black woman to the United States Supreme Court if he wins the Presidency.
“The fact is, what we should be doing, we talked about the Supreme Court. I’m looking forward to making sure there’s a black woman on the Supreme Court to make sure, and in fact, get – Not a joke! Not a joke! – I push very hard for that,” Biden exclaimed.
This was blatant pandering by Biden.
Polls show Biden narrowly leading Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, but all of the polling data is from before Sanders’ win in Nevada, which entrenched him as the race’s frontrunner.
Biden needs every advantage he can get and a blatant racial appeal on the Supreme Court was the former Vice President’s last ditch effort to drive black turnout in the South Carolina primary.
