New presidency could shift balance of Supreme Court

With four Supreme Court justices in their 70s, some analysts are saying it's likely that the next elected president will appoint at least one justice, shifting the balance of the court. Elon Political Science Professor Dion Farganis agrees, and predicts that if President Obama is re-elected he would appoint a liberal justice and Governor Romney would do the opposite. "If Obama gets re-elected and a conservative justice retires like Scalia, that would then change the balance," Farganis said.

Chicago is home to more than 30 universities, with hundreds of thousands of students enrolled.
