Trump’s judges have received nearly half of all no votes in U.S. history, an average of about 22 per judge (and about 36 per circuit judge) — as compared to just over 6 per judge under Obama.
Restoring circuit duties to the court would naturally decrease tenure on the bench without weakening the judiciary’s independence or adding more justices in a partisan war.
