A large majority of Americans believe it's time for Joe Biden to provide his list of Supreme Court candidates, just like President Trump did.
A new Scott Rasmussen poll released Sunday found 59% of likely voters think the Democratic presidential nominee should reveal who he would nominate to the nation's high court if he wins the presidency.
Sixty-six percent of Democrats want Biden to announce his Supreme Court picks, as do 57% of Independents and 52% of Republicans, the poll found.
But 52% of likely voters think the Senate should delay filling the vacancy left by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until after the November presidential election.
A large minority of 41% think that the replacement nominee should be approved as soon as possible.
While 73% of Republicans want the swift confirmation of a nominee, 80% of Democrats favor delaying until the election has passed.
In the survey performed the day after Ginsburg's passing, 64% of likely voters had a favorable view of her, compared to 16% with an unfavorable view and 20% who were not certain.
The full sample has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points, according to ScottRasmussen.com.
