If Trump supporters are so sure Trump will win in November, why are they in such a hurry to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

    Excellent question.  And all the evasive answers from Trump toadies here in Y!A don't answer the question while raising many other questions about the Trump supporters true motives.  It can wait until after the new President is sworn in.   “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.  Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”--Moscow Mitch.

    Trump supporters aren't the ones replacing her. It's Trump's job to replace her and the Senate's job to confirm the candidate. A better question would be why are the Democrats so desperate for a delay?

    Because IF TRUMP did nothing you would complain that he is not doing his job.. No Matter what he does you MARXIST SOCIALIST COMMUNISTS are going to complain.. NOTHING he does is right according to you leftist and democrits based on nothing but your hate for Queen Hillary losing.

    They know he's going to lose and that they are going to lose the Senate. So they better do it now. Even when he loses, they can still vote in their choice in a lame duck session.

    He has a duty under the constitution to appoint Justices. He is also honoring the wishes of Ginsburg, who we are told was interested in applying the law. Ginsburg herself said that having 8 justices is problematic. 

    From the NY Times during Obama's last year:

    Asked if the Senate had an obligation to assess Judge Garland’s qualifications, her answer was immediate.

    “That’s their job,” she said. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.”

    Our President moves quickly on everything.  He is not a deadbeat like Joe Biden.  President Trump gets things done with or without help from Congress.

    Why did Democrats want to do it so fast in 2016 before Obama left office? Then it was the President's solemn duty. Now, it's such a problem that Pelosi is actually threatening impeachment if Trump does what the Constitution tells him is his job. Can you say "hypocrite?" If not, you should learn.

    We already know Democrats will take action in an attempt to cheat on election results, but that aside, putting a Chief Justice in place right away is important because there needs to be an odd number of justices to offset votes, meaning 8 justices could result in ties, so there is always cases that need to be heard and there is always a long list of very capable replacements, remember, all these Justices are supposed to be moderate, John Roberts is a good example, Trump thought he might be more conservative, but he has proven to be more liberal in his decisions.....Trump has done very good on his picks so far, Democrats have nothing to worry about, this whole show of their hair being on fire is a false narrative going into an election.
