The US Senate and the Nuclear Option - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

DO NOT PANIC, the US is not going to WAR, it's the decision by US Republicans to change the rules of the Senate, at present it takes 60 votes to get a nominee on the US Supreme Court, after Friday it will only take 51.  The first shot of this battle was done by the Democrats, they were fed up with the Republicans blocking Judges for the lower Courts, thus they changed the rules from 60 to 51, this lesson will now be used by the Republicans when it comes to the Supreme Court.   The bases of both Parties have become more powerful, they keep an eye on their candidates, if you want to get re-elected you have to give the base what it wants, otherwise you are out.
