In the same left-right (liberal-conservative) policy space, we locate President-Elect Trump’s possible nominees to the Supreme Court, the current justices, and several highly salient decisions. The goal is to consider how the Court (and, ultimately, the law) could change depending on Trump’s picks to replace Justice Scalia and other justices who may depart during his presidency.
