A new poll released on Sunday shows that a majority of U.S. voters prefer to have the Supreme Court Justice seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg to be filled after the November election.

According to the data from a New York Times/Siena College survey, 56% of voters want the winner of the 2020 presidential election to nominate Ginsburg’s replacement. About 41% want President Trump to make that decision now.

The poll was conducted between Sept. 22 and 24, with 950 likely voters surveyed, and a 3.5% margin of error.

Republicans have vowed to move ahead with Barrett’s nomination. Democrats, meanwhile, have pointed to Senate Republicans’ refusal in 2016 – an election year – to move forward with President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nomination of Judge Merrick Garland after the death of Antonin Scalia.

Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Sunday laid out a detailed timeline of Barrett’s confirmation process starting Oct. 12.
