My prediction is Ginsburg or Kennedy will step down by 2019 giving Trump another vacancy which would tilt the Supreme Court 5-4 conservative. If Donald Trump is re elected in 2020 then he will likely get another two vacancies on the Supreme Court possibly even 3 if Thomas decides to retire which would make the Supreme Court 6-3 or 7-2 conservative. My prediction is Obergefell v Hodges will be overturned by 2025.

I doubt that either will happen, but probably Roe V. Wade as abortion is currently a more controversial issue than gay marriage.

This isn't even a question.  Even the most conservative courts would probably ignore a full rehearing of Obergefell, but they might entertain allowing individual judges or counties to abstain from partaking in gay weddings (and would certainly side with florists, bakers, and the like).  On the other hand, while I am somewhat concerned about Roberts's vote, overturning Roe is a common promise on the right today and the votes could theoretically be there by the end of 2017.

A conservative is:
Pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, anti-drug, pro-religious freedom, pro-2nd Amendment, anti-"gender identity", pro-free speech, pro-Patriot Act, pro-NSA, anti-tax, anti-regulation, pro-strong border but pro-immigration, anti-sanctuary city, pro-law enforcement, pro-free trade, anti-Obamacare, anti-Planned Parenthood, anti-affirmative action, anti-alt-right, race-blind, sex-blind, anti-hookup culture, anti-populist, anti-libertarian, and pro-America!!

Are you conservative
