Poll: Impeachment Talk Hurting Dems' Chances in Midterms

Democrats are predicting a blue wave will take the House of Representatives in November. They’ve been predicting this ever since big Democratic wins in Virginia last year. However, the party has seemingly bet the farm on hopes of impeaching President Donald Trump — and that’s a losing idea among voters, who are finally seeing through the madness and media narratives.

According to a Marist Poll released earlier this week: “A plurality of registered voters (47%) say they would definitely vote against a candidate for Congress who wants to impeach the president. 42% would definitely vote for a candidate who has that intent, and 10% are unsure.”

Roughly 30 percent of Democrats would either vote against such a candidate or aren’t sure. While 70 percent still makes it a popular idea among Democrats, the real battle is in the general election — where impeachment doesn’t look good.

Marist reports: “Among Republicans, 84% would not back a candidate seeking to impeach President Trump. A plurality of independents (47%) say the same.”

In other words, impeachment is not the winning platform Democrats think it is, and it may even cost them a chance at the House.

While Donald Trump has done nothing to avoid ruffling feathers during his presidency, there’s nothing to impeach him over. He hasn’t committed any high crimes or misdemeanors.

The worst they have on him is sexual infidelity … from a decade ago.

Americans know that. They understand that there are no grounds for even a discussion of impeaching Trump; that it’s just being considered as a political tactic. While some might applaud a party willing to do such things for victory, the majority of Americans don’t. They don’t want a country that allows for the overthrow of its elected leaders based on strategy, not the rule of law.

Of course, you can expect the Democrats to continue talking about impeachment because so many live in urban media bubbles. They aren’t going to like suffering yet another bout of existential disappointment come November.
