  Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death has left the Supreme Court shorthanded during a polarizing presidential campaign in which President Donald Trump has already suggested he may not accept the outcome and the court could be called on to step in and decide the fate of the nation. It's the second time in four years that a justice has died during an election year, though that eight-justice court was not asked to referee any election disputes in 2016. Today, both sides have armies of lawyers ready to take the outcome to court.

David Boies, who represented Al Gore in the Bush v. Gore case that decided the 2000 election, participated in the segment along with Toobin. He disagreed with Toobin's assessment that the Democrats are "weak" and said a more apt term would be "cautious."

Ginsburg, who had served on the court since 1993, died on Friday at the age of 87. The president said he will be nominating a woman to replace her later this week, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he will bring a nominee picked by Trump to the floor for a vote.

While the White House has signaled confidence that any nominee Trump chooses has the votes necessary for confirmation before Election Day, two GOP senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, said the upper chamber should wait until at least the November election to vote on filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court. If they defect, with the GOP having 53 seats in the upper chamber, that would mean only two more Republicans would need to defect to defeat the nomination as Vice President Mike Pence could vote to break a tie.
