Supreme Court justices who heard arguments Thursday on whether Donald Trump should be kicked off the 2024 Colorado ballot appeared to be “leaning in favor” of the former president, according to Fox News legal correspondent Shannon Bream.

Justice Kagan questioned whether one state should decide on behalf of the entire country who should be president.

Justice Roberts warned that if the Court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, some states would interpret that to mean they could kick off Democrats or Republicans from the ballot.

Justice Jackson challenged lawyer Jason Murray’s assertion that there was no ambiguity in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

Chief Justice Roberts warned of the “daunting consequences” should only a handful of states decide the President of the United States.

Per Bream, a closed-door conference vote on the decision will come in the next few days. A decision may come in a matter of days or months.
