Some History Regarding SCOTUS Nominations
Since 1900, the Senate has voted on eight Supreme Court nominees during an election year. Six were confirmed. But several of those were for seats that had become vacant in the previous year.
Along with the factoid, there is a very useful chart that is worth reviewing.
The Senate has never taken more than 125 days to vote on a successor from the time of nomination; on average, a nominee has been confirmed, rejected or withdrawn within 25 days.
So, on the one hand, history and tradition dictate that there should at least be a vote sometimes in the next 11 months.
On the other, I suspect that neither history nor tradition will end up guiding outcomes this year.
