Despite not nominating many judges, Obama will soon give Democrats large majorities among judges

With four years of Democratic nominees still to come, the courts are evenly divided.
the percentage of Republican-appointed circuit court judges only dropped from 61.3 percent to 51.8 percent, and the percentage of Republican-appointed district court judges only dropped from 58.6 percent to 53.6 percent . . . .
The news article that this is from emphasizes that Republicans still control a majority of judges on the courts, though they have a minority of the much more important Appeals Court judges.  Obama could easily appoint more than 200 more of the 865 district and appeals court judges over the next four years.  The information from the left wing Alliance for Justice that the above article in the Washington Times relied on is available here.
