Prediction: Joe Manchin will vote to confirm the next Trump justice
He has to if he wants to stay in office from the great state of West Virginia. Not the biggest fan of the guy, but he's pretty much the last remaining Blue Dog Democrat in DC. He voted for Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.

Not a chance. He'll get in line.

He also voted to convict Trump, didn’t he?

I highly doubt it. Manchin might be considered a “Conservative Democrat” and occasionally break rank with his party but he always votes with the Democrats on the most important issues.

Not this time. He had no choice as Trump was in the middle of his term with those prior nominees.

It will only be what's left of the power of the Supreme Court to essentially DECIDE this next election. They did for Bush; and they'll have to do it again. Otherwise, hell will break loose. Likely will anyway.

He is retiring. He may vote for the nominee. He did for the last two.

If he were up for election in 2022 he would, but he isn't up again until 2024

re: Prediction: Joe Manchin will vote to confirm the next Trump justice
If his vote “matters”, he’s voting party line with Dems. I don’t know why people always think he will vote with republicans. I cannot think of a single vote where he crosses party lines to be the deciding vote. He is expected to retire so he may get a backbone but not likely.

Manchin has the West Virginians fooled into thinking he’s a conservative Democrat but his actions speak otherwise. He will vote lock step with the other libertarian.

No he won’t. His leadership will not allow that. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh didn’t change the balance on the court. The Dem leadership could live with that despite all their noise and allowed Manchin so flexibility. This time a conservative would replace a liberal, there’s no way they allow Manchin to vote for the nominee. No Dem will vote for the nominee.

I believe he vote no on Kavanaugh until he knew his vote did matter then changed to yes. He will do the same this time .

I think it will be 50-50 with Romney, Murkowski, and Collins siding with the Dems making the VP the tie breaking vote. If just one true Republican breaks ranks outside of the 3 A-holes listed above, it will be 49-51 in favor of Dems and they won’t need the VP tiebreaker.

re: Prediction: Joe Manchin will vote to confirm the next Trump justice
Besides maybe Murkowski, and not even fully convinced about her despite her prior statement, I think it's nowhere near a foregone conclusion that anyone (besides Dems) will vote against or even abstain. There's a lot that could happen in the interim/hearings. The nominee could blow them out of the water with their responses and presentation, thus putting great pressure on the Republican to not arbitrarily deep 6 the confirmation....keeping in mind that their constituents saw on tv the same thing they saw in person.

It is utterly naive to assume that anything any nominee says in any of these hearings will change a single mind, or a single vote.

I have sincere confidence in the inability of Democrats to not be insane. They will overplay their hand, or overreact or something. The insane
overreaction reaction of the Democrats, who are already tweeting death threats to Mitch McConnel and trying to go to protest at his house is basically what Trump has in his favor.

These wackos will do the same thing to Susan Collins. She will vote to confirm as a result.

Romney and Murkowski are irrelevant and useless.

We always have these threads and he always toes the party line.

He’s got a lot of people fooled; not everyone.

re: Prediction: Joe Manchin will vote to confirm the next Trump justice
Let me put it a different way, as it seems we may have not connected on that.

If the nominee blew it out of the water which the Senator's home crowd would also observe on tv, it would be a sticky situation for said Senator to have to go back home and explain to constituents why he or she still did not vote to confirm. I would have a hard time believing that wouldn't be a significant consideration in that Senator's deliberation on how to vote (or not vote, as the case may be).
