Default SCOTUS predictions

Predictions?
Will more SCOTUS judges retire or pass away during Trump's presidency?
If so how many? Which?

I am predicting a major shake-up. Kennedy is rumored to be retiring soon and he's 80. Ginsburg seems like she's on her last leg, frankly, and is 84. Even Breyer is 78. It just seems to me there is a real possibility for a major up-heavel to happen pretty soon, and under Trump's watch. If any of it happens before the next Congress is sworn in, it's a shoe-in the court will turn way more conservative than it is now.
I predict he will replace Kennedy and Ginsburg (both with conservative justices), with Breyer holding out longer.

My predictions are shot from the hip. I cannot justify them except to say they are how I see it emotionally.

Kennedy will be next IMHO. Breyer will then hold out to keep the Court liberal.

Ginsberg has lost it and will leave in a box.

As for President Trump, I cannot believe he will pack the court with Conservatives. At some point he will need the Democrats and one liberal Justice is a bone they should take if he tosses it. It will be interesting to see how far the Never Trump strategy will survive with that dilemma.

I was thinking more like POTUS predictions would be in order next.
