Opinion: Gorsuch pick is Trump's best decision yet

President Trump has chosen Neil Gorsuch, a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, to fill the long-vacant Supreme Court seat left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The decision is already earning Trump high marks among many constitutional conservatives, including from numerous politicians and members of the media who have long questioned Trump's commitment to conservative ideals.

Erick Erickson, a longtime critic of Trump, says in an article posted on his political commentary site the Resurgent, "Judge Gorsuch is the one nominee who matches Antonin Scalia's intellectual pedigree and will unite all the factions within the Republican Party. This is a very wise move by President Trump. Even his most ardent critics on the right will have to commend President Trump for this nomination. It is rock solid."
