Sahil Kapur of Bloomberg Politics asks Ted Cruz about how he would shape the Supreme Court as president:
The Supreme Court is poised for vacancies in the years ahead. Come Election Day, three out of nine justices (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, and Anthony Kennedy) will be over 80 years old. A fourth, Stephen Breyer, will be 78. The average Supreme Court retirement age is 78.7, according to a 2006 Harvard study. The next president could end up nominating several justices, making the high court stakes enormous in the 2016 election, particularly given the now familiar 5-to-4 split on monumental issues like voting rights, campaign finance, gun rights, and the role of religion in public life.
