The nine-point difference could suggest an enthusiasm gap between the parties, as liberal groups sound the alarm that a newly configured court could outlaw abortion rights if a conservative nominee replaces Kennedy's swing vote.

I don't know who this gentlemen is-he doesn't appear to be a member of the media-but his tweet was so downtrodden and hopeless, it earned a spot.

In answer to reporters' questions, Trump denied a candidate's stance on abortion rights and the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case would be a litmus test. "I would say that he is among the most powerful justices since at least 1937". He met Thursday with key Republican and Democratic senators at the White House in the evening to discuss the vacancy.

Other prominent names who could be considered include Judges Amy Coney Barrett, whom Trump named to the federal appeals court in Chicago; Raymond Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk who serves on the appeals court based in Cincinnati; and Amul Thapar, who is close to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and whom Trump nominated to the Cincinnati-based appeals court. Trump said he may begin interviewing candidates this weekend and is already considering two women. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list.

Supreme Court vacancies have become a key voting issue in the US presidential election.

Even though new arrivals have dropped, the political consequences of migration pressures are still reverberating around Europe. Italy and Malta refused to take in the ship, which was stranded at sea for days before being offered safe haven in Spain.

The complication for a Lee nomination is that if he joined the court, a Republican Senate seat would be vacated at a time when Republicans hold only a narrow 51-49 Senate majority.

As a candidate, Trump sought to win over social conservatives by emphasizing the role of the Federalist Society in judicial nominations. Also attending were Republican Charles Grassley and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp. When it comes to the Supreme Court fight, that list is quickly culled to just three for one reason: they are the only Democrats who voted to confirm Gorsuch in 2017 - Indiana Sen.

For Republicans' part, they need to balance actively campaigning against the trio in 2018, while courting their votes for the Supreme Court nominee.

"Because Kennedy drifted right this term, he and Roberts shared the median spot", Epstein said. "From day one, I've heard, outside of war and peace of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge - if you get it".
