Many people including myself have asked if the Republicans truly believe Donald Trump would make a better selection to fill Antonin Scalia's seat on the Supreme Court than President Obama has.
Trump's opponents have said he's not a true conservative and thus you wouldn't necessarily expect them to rely on his judgement, but you could say he has thrown them a bone.
The Republican presidential frontrunner now says he'll outsource the Supreme Court selection process to Jim DeMint's Heritage Foundation.
At a press conference on Monday, Trump also revealed an unusual detail about how he is determining which names should be on the list. “Heritage Foundation and others are working on” the list,” according to Trump.
Heritage is a think tank known for its stridently conservative views and its unorthodox approach to mathematics.
DeMint's Heritage Foundation is rabidly anti-gay, anti-immigrant, pro-voter suppression, and anti-tax. This is Trump's Bat signal to conservatives that he may not be one of them but he will nominate one of them; a true believer.
Republicans have not voiced confidence in Trump's thirst for conservative judicial activism up to this point, but I expect they will now.
