Vox Features Kastellec and Cameron on Trump and the Supreme Court Nomination Battle

March 7, 2016

John Kastellec and Charles Cameron discuss in Vox how the rise of Donald Trump in the Republican primaries is complicating (already-complicated) political calculations surrounding the vacancy on the Supreme Court. "A president in his final year is facing a Senate opposition that is determined to prevent him from nominating a new justice who would substantially shift the ideological balance of the Court toward its liberal wing. But, as is now clear, this is far from a normal year — and the prospect of Donald Trump being the Republican nominee may significantly change the game."

Charles Cameron is Professor of Politics and Public Affairs and John Kastellec is Assistant Professor of Politics at Princeton University. Both are CSDP faculty associates.
