What Little Nemo said. Republicans aren't dumb; they have an agenda to pass, they are serious about getting that agenda passed, and they know what helps or obstructs that agenda.

Nominating a diseased yak to SCOTUS - or, OK, anyone other than a conservative justice - doesn't help the conservative cause, and they know it. If, (realistically,) Trump had nominated a liberal to fill Scalia's vacancy, no way Republicans would have "rolled over" for that one.
