There is going to be a SCOTUS vote before the election. All the incentives are aligned for the GOP to push now. From me.
"They will get that judge because, to many Trump voters, this is the only redeeming thing about the Trump presidency. And this is their last, best chance to win another prize before Trump potentially loses to Joe Biden in November."

I don't understand those who think waiting to confirm in a lame duck makes sense. That risks confirming a judge nominated by a President who was just rejected by the voters by senators who have been voted out of office. NOT GOOD.
