“I think come November if it’s in the past, I’m not sure it’s going to be as strong as some of the other things that are dominating," Cooperman, a partner at Schoen Consulting, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." 

"I think immigration is going to be dominating ... and [the] economy and those kinds of things will sort of reset."

Trump announced Monday that he would nominate Kavanaugh, who currently serves as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the nation's highest court.

Conservatives have largely praised the selection, while Democrats have raised alarms about the right-leaning court trying to roll back health care and women's reproductive rights if Kavanaugh replaces Kennedy, who often served as a swing-vote on the court.
