Stop Donald Trump's Supreme Court Nominee

This petition had 826 supporters

Petition to Chuck Schumer and all 48 Senate Democrats to be tough, to not give in and to filibuster Donald Trump's unacceptable Supreme Court nominee.

Senate Democrats, all by themselves, can filibuster the confirmation of an unacceptable nominee even if every Republican votes for that nominee.

Here is the very simple math: It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster ("cloture"). There are only 52 Senate Republicans. They need to peel away 8 Democrats. If 41 of the 48 Senate Democrats vote for the filibuster (and against "cloture"), Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination fails.

To make this happen everyone signing this petition should also write or call or visit their Democratic Senators (you can call 202 224 3121) and tell them #Vote2FilibusterOrIWontVote4U and that you will, in fact, "Primary" them, finding and supporting another Democrat in the Democratic Primary who does have the courage to stand up to Donald Trump.

Donald Trump did not receive the majority of votes in the November 8 election and has no mandate to select an extremist, anti-choice, anti-women, anti-environment, anti-gun control, anti-campaign finance reform/pro "Citizens United" Supreme Court Justice who will influence the Court, the country and our personal lives for the next 10, 20, 30 or even more years!  As such, no Supreme Court Justice who does not represent the mainstream and the majority of Americans should be allowed to be confirmed by the 48 Democrats in The United States Senate.
