House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her caucus have committed political suicide and now there is no way out.
Months ago, Democrats had numbers in their favor for impeachment with near half of Americans favored it.
But Democrats wanted to get more and more on the president and wanted to smear his name in the court of public opinion.
The smear campaign was successful among their base of crazies who have wanted the president impeached from the day he won the election.
Unfortunately for them it backfired in a major way with the rest of the country as polls show that the unpopularity of impeachment is growing, a new Gallup poll said.
“As the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump begins, 44% of Americans approve of the job he is doing as president. Trump’s approval rating has been steady in the past three polls — between 43% and 45% — slightly above the 39% to 41% ratings he received as the impeachment inquiry started in the fall,” Gallup said.
The numbers are close to the highest he has had of his presidency, just below his high of 46 percent, Gallup reported.
And the president has Democrats to thank as his numbers continue to rise and the favorability of impeachment continues to plummet.
“Forty-six percent of Americans say they would like their senators to vote to convict Trump and remove him from office, while 51% want their senators to vote against conviction so Trump will remain as president,” it said.
“Like his approval rating, Trump’s impeachment figures are also sharply divided along partisan lines. Ninety-three percent of Republicans are opposed to convicting Trump and 84% of Democrats favor doing so. Independents are evenly divided, with 49% in favor and 46% opposed,” it said.
But astoundingly Democrats have continued to toe the party line and push for the president’s impeachment, begging the Senate to drag it out longer so they can continue their smear campaign.
They are exhausting and their nonsense rhetoric, which was on full display on Tuesday, is making American cringe.
“As was the case for Clinton, the impeachment of Trump has not had a noticeably negative effect on his popular support. In fact, for both presidents, impeachment had the opposite effect of increasing their public approval. Clinton registered a personal best 73% approval rating immediately after being impeached. Clinton’s higher rating may also have been aided by U.S. airstrikes against Iraq that occurred at the same time as the House impeachment vote,” Gallup said.
Drag this out as long as you want with your capricious temper tantrums Democrats. It will help President Trump win election again in 2020.
