Justice Scalia had the gall to croak during Obama’s presidency, so Senate Republicans are going to obstruct the appointment of his successor. I doubt stalling Scalia’s replacement is a great strategy. Even if he thinks a Republican will win in November, McConnell can’t seriously think whomever Trump (gah!), Cruz (gross!) or Rubio (duh!) would pick is worth losing control of the Senate by giving their obstructionism a sympathetic name and face in Obama’s stonewalled nominee which will likely increase Democratic turnout.
