Several key Democrats are keeping their votes to themselves days before a showdown over Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.

Gorsuch needs 60 votes to end a filibuster backed by most Democrats, meaning the GOP needs to pick off eight members of the minority.

If Democrats block Gorsuch, Republicans promise to go “nuclear,” ordering a vote to change the Senate’s rules to allow his nomination to go forward on a majority vote.

Some voices on the left and the right appear to be hoping for such an outcome, though a group of centrist Democrats is trying to ward off that showdown. They are warning fellow Democratic senators that their party should not filibuster Gorsuch, warning it could lead to eliminating the filibuster for legislation.

    USE THE NUCLEAR OPTION ON ALL AND PUT TRUMPS PEOPLE IN OFFICE TODAY, INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH THE PONY AND DOG SHOW. ALSO, LOOK AT RAND PAUL’S HEALTH PLAN, HE IS A DOCTOR AND KNOW WHAT WE NEED.

    YOU AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Eliminating the filibuster would go a long way towards speeding things up in the Senate. When Harry Reid went nuclear a few years ago I stated that the political pendulum has a way of swinging. Those who are in power now will not always enjoy that advantage.

    Democrats and Republicans need to consider what they would want in place if their roles were reversed. The Democrats also need to consider the next three vacancies are likely to be created by departing liberal justices. I don’t know if it is strategically wise to blow all their chips on this appointment. Assuming Gorsuch truly is conservative, the balance of power on the Court isn’t going to change.

    THIS SHOULD BE DONE ANYWAY, MAJORITY SHOULD ALWAYS WIN. GO NUCLEAR.
