Ginburg was appointed to the court in 1993 by then-President Bill Clinton, and has consistently been among the most far-left justices, making her a hero to the left, and a thorn in the side of the right.
Her death now leaves a vacancy on the court that President Trump will certainly attempt to fill.
But considering the way Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated, things are sure to get ugly, and he may not have time to get one through before the election.
Her death is almost certain to change the dynamic of the Presidential election. The issue of the Supreme Court will now become the issue at the forefront of the campaigns.
President Trump in recent days added 20 names to his already extensive list of potential nominees to the Court.
All of Trump’s potential nominees are conservatives who hold a more originalist view of the Constitution, while Biden has pledged to apppoint left-wing justices, who will protect pro-abortion decisions like Roe v. Wade.
