BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg's passing on Friday has many Americans wondering what comes next. According to Boston-based attorney Jeffrey Robbins, if you thought politics were ugly before last night, just wait.
"You're going to see an already hyper-partisan, hyper-charged, hyper-angry political season get even more charged and angry," he told WBZ NewsRadio.
With a vacancy in the Supreme Court and around five weeks until election day, Robbins expects voters to be more fired up than ever. He thinks progressive voters, who are not happy about Joe Biden's nomination, will now be more inclined to show up to the polls in November. On the other side, he said Republicans likely welcome the shift in conversation.
"Its an opportunity to change the subject from COVID-19, change the subject form racial justice issues which have not favored the president, and turn it back to traditional conservative values."
Robbins said candidates from both major parties should see a big uptick in fundraising this weekend.
