    and they'd rather not get their hands dirty with this. If they can kick it back to the lower court and let that judge do the heavy lifting, they can move forward without having to face the wrath of an angry Republican Party next time they appear on the ballot.

    But should the lower court balk, refuse to issue the injunction and force their hand, it seems to me that the Supreme Court justices are prepared to kill this if it comes back for reconsideration.

    Just a layman's opinion, I'm not a lawyer.
