The Supreme Court this week will take up a potentially landmark case that could end almost five decades of Justice Department intervention that gives the federal government control over voting decisions in states and localities with a history of discrimination.
With Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's Senate confirmation all but assured later this week, the only guessing game left is the margin of her pending victory.
"Because of that, it is a safer bet to vote against than to vote for [her]," Mr. Blum said. "Those that want to see a traditionally minded jurist serving on the Supreme Court feel very uncomfortable voting for someone like Kagan."
Mr. Blum said she expects Ms. Kagan will get fewer votes than Justice Sotomayor, and "far fewer" than Chief Justice Roberts.
