A new poll found a majority of Americans want President Obama to nominate a Supreme Court justice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
The CNN/ORC poll found 58 percent of Americans think Obama should nominate someone, while 41 percent said the seat should remain vacant.
When the poll asked what the Republican leadership in the Senate should do in response to a nomination, respondents were much more in favor of the Senate holding hearings than not — 66 percent to 32 percent.
