And as if we thought that 2020 had already given us its biggest shocks, we’re now contending with the imminent confirmation of the next Supreme Court Justice, right before election time!

The control enjoyed in both the White House and Senate by the Republican party presupposes their given ability to choose the candidate without any real political opposition.

However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already stated that the Democrats will consider all possible means to delay the confirmation until after the new POTUS takes over.

Will the Democrats succeed in their attempt to hinder the President’s likely-conservative pick for new Supreme Court Justice? According to the betting odds offered by, attorney Amy Barrett leads the charge with a -115 money line price, followed by Cuban-American judge Barbara Logoa.

Important Betting Facts to Consider:

  • President Trump has already declared that he is “positive” the new Justice will be a woman.
  • Even though Amy Barrett had already been mentioned by Trump as his personal pick; Barbara Lagoa has been pointed out as a very strong contender to the post.
  • Republicans will present their pick at any moment now; they MUST have a new Justice in place before the 2020 POTUS elections take place; as they must ensure jurisprudential legitimacy in case of a potential contested win.
  • The Democrats possess no real “legal” means to successfully stop a nomination before election day.
