Hmmmm, AOC's immaturity just ensured the Republicans come out on top no matter whether Trump goes for an early replacement or not. By encouraging 'radicalisation' in a SCOTUS picking process, it will isolate a lot of moderate Democrats. Nobody wants a radical loose canon on SCOTUS. The smartest thing POUS can do now is nominate a moderate professional female candidate who will be far more acceptable to Dems than a possible wild card pushed by the radical left if the Dems per chance got in. Radical they will be, neither Biden nor Harris could stop the leftist surge, only Trump could do that.
