Trump’s Amy Coney Barrett Pick for Supreme Court Might Backfire, Analysts Say

Trump’s commitment to picking a woman appears political: Trump’s administration has been criticized for being male-dominated, and his support is dwindling with women voters. That includes white women, who played a key role in his 2016 victory. Picking Amy Coney Barrett is likely an effort to bring them back into the fold.

But when it comes to winning over voters, analysts agreed the strategy appears at the very least ineffective—and potentially counterproductive.
