Effect of the presidency on US Court of Appeals composition
An interesting graph. When the Obama Admin began in 2009, of the eleven numbered circuits, only the Ninth had a majority of Demo appointees, with the Second and Third being split 50-50.
In 2016, only four circuits (in the middle of the country) have a majority of Repub appointees; the other seven are all majority Demo appointees. (The same is true of the DC and Federal Circuits). What's also interesting in both Repub dominated and Demo dominated circuits, the proportions tend to be overwhelming, 66-33% or more.
