Sixty-two percent of Americans said the vacancy left by Ginsburg, who died Friday, should be filled by whichever candidate wins the upcoming election, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Sunday. 
The poll found 23 percent said they disagreed that the vacancy should be filled by the winner of the election and the rest said they were not sure, according to Reuters. 
The national poll was conducted Sept. 19-20, after Ginsburgs death was announced by the court, according to the newswire.  
The poll found that eight out of 10 Democrats agreed the appointment should wait until after the election, as did five in 10 Republicans, according to Reuters. 
President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS reimposes UN sanctions on Iran amid increasing tensionsJeff Flake: Republicans ‘should hold the same position’ on SCOTUS vacancy as 2016Trump supporters chant ‘Fill that seat’ at North Carolina rallyMORE has said he will nominate a successor and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConell (R-Ky.) has vowed to hold a vote on Trumps nominee. 
Democratic lawmakers slammed McConnell and Republicans for voicing support for a quick vote on Trumps nominee just weeks ahead of the election, calling it hypocritical since many of the same lawmakers, including McConnell, blocked then-President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee in 2016 after conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died 10 months before that years election. 
Republicans, however, have dismissed accusations of hypocrisy and argued there is a historic precedent for a president to nominate a successor, and for the Senate majority of the same party to confirm the nominee. 
Republicans could not afford any more than three defections to confirm Trump’s nominee if all 47 members of the Senate Democratic caucus oppose Trump’s pick.
