5. Possibly not

but I suppose it depends on how much people are paying attention. I think that most people can understand the feeling of having different rules applied arbitrarily to the same situation but OTOH that probably also depends too on whether or not they're on the "winning team" at any given time. You know the Republicans would be howling like wolves if Democrats kept changing the rules whenever it suited them. Of course, too, now that Republicans have set these precedents, it will likely be hard for their successors to not want to follow along with those changes in the future too. But they're probably not thinking that far ahead. In regards to Barrett, they only saw RBG die in office and were excited that Trump would be able to replace a THIRD justice in just one term and forgot about the hypocrisy in preventing Obama will filling Scalia's seat in 2016 when there was much more time available for them to confirm Garland (or even just hold a vote).
