Supreme Court Page, Updated

With the end of the October 2018 term of the U.S. Supreme Court just behind us, I have updated “U.S. Supreme Court: Lines of Succession and Ideological Agreement“. It consists of four parts: Lines of Succession, Ideological Alignment, Polarization, and Judging the Justices: The Thomas Standard. The last two sections are new to the page; I adapted them from now-outdated posts.
