The survey also found that 52% of Likely Voters believe the Senate should wait to confirm Ginsburg’s replacement until after the presidential election. Forty-one percent (41%) disagree and believe the new Justice should be confirmed as soon as possible. Not surprisingly, there is a substantial partisan divide on this question.
Seventy-three percent (73%) of Republicans believe the new Justice should be confirmed as soon as possible.
Eighty percent (80%) of Democrats believe confirmation should wait until after the election.
Independent voters were more evenly divided. Fifty-one percent (51%) agree with the Democrats and 40% with the Republicans.
