Poll: Americans reject Chuck Schumer’s cynical, hypocritical call to delay Trump SCOTUS pick

A majority of Americans are rejecting demands from Senate Democrats to delay consideration of President Trump’s nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy past the 2018 midterm elections.
An NBC News poll released Monday found that “more than six in 10 Americans, 62 percent” said that Trump’s SCOTUS pick should be considered by the Senate before the November elections. A third of those polled, 33 percent, agreed with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other Democrats who have accused the Republicans of hypocrisy after the GOP Senate majority refused to consider President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland during a presidential election year.
Millions of ppl are just months away from determining the senators who should vote to confirm or reject POTUS’s nominee, & their voices deserve to be heard now, as @SenateMajLdr thought they deserved to be heard then. Anything but that would be the absolute height of hypocrisy.

The goal is simple and political. Schumer thinks Democrats might retake the Senate in November, empowering them to block President Trump’s nominees until 2020, when they hope Trump will be knocked out of office. He’s inventing a new Senate precedent out of thin air to achieve this goal.
