What happens if Roe v. Wade is overturned

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 think sometimes we talk about Supreme Court too much in abstractions, about dignity and who is qualified and who is not".

In an interview with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo airing Sunday, though, the president said he "probably" wouldn't ask candidates about how they'd vote on the case.

President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., want to move swiftly to confirm the justice to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy before the court reconvenes on October 1.

And there are two laws on hold by injunction and now in USA appeals court - one from Alabama and one from Texas - either of which would effectively outlaw the vast majority of abortions after 14 weeks, says Elizabeth Nash, who leads research on state policy on reproductive rights for the Guttmacher Institute.

"Mike Lee, he's an outstanding talent", Trump said. "Just banning abortion and because they know that there are now going to be five votes on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe V. Wade", Toobin said. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

'England have clear path to World Cup semi-finals'
While the summit had the nations' heavy hitters on hand, both Belgium and England played their B-team at the World Cup .

In a statement, Murkowski noted her standards for the Supreme Court are "extremely high" and that she will cast an "independent vote" when the eventual nominee comes before the Senate.

Republicans changed Senate rules a year ago to get Trump's conservative nominee Neil Gorsuch confirmed, lowering the threshold to advance Supreme Court nominations to a simple majority vote. Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also talked to Trump.

With Gorsuch, his body of work and his writing were important, but Trump was also impressed by his educational record and his class ranking.

One person on that list of names is Utah Sen.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, is the oldest member of the current Supreme Court but has given no public hint of a retirement.

"The fact that there's a modest enthusiasm disadvantage isn't all that meaningful because there's already an enthusiasm gap for Republicans", he said, noting Democratic anger towards Trump. Mr Trump's ambitions mean that come 2043 his selection could still be one of the nine justices making the most important legal rulings in America.
