Most would agree that the swamp creatures in D.C. have not bothered to learn what Americans think about impeachment.

Democrats are so eager to destroy former President Donald Trump’s legacy and brand him a “traitor” that they ignore that nearly 74 million Americans voted for him.

Now, Americans are letting Congress know loud and clear what they think about this.

A majority of battleground voters want Congress to move on from impeaching Trump, according to a January 12 memo from the pollster John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates.

The survey examined 800 battleground voters in key states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin — and found the majority oppose both another impeachment attempt and Big Tech dramatically increasing censorship.

The memo, which was addressed to Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller, found 60 percent of all voters view impeachment as “another waste of time and money.”

An even greater percentage, 77 percent, believe the 117th Congress should prioritize dealing with the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, with less than a quarter preferring to prioritize impeaching Trump.

Nearly three-fourths also believe that the efforts of the Democrats, to impeach Trump, are “politically motivated to prevent the President from running again, stripping his Secret Service protection, and preventing him from having a presidential Library.”

Other findings, per the memo:

  • 65% of all voters agree that by continuing to attack the President, [President-elect] Joe Biden and [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi are making this worse and keeping the country divided. Only 35% disagree.
  • 48% of all voters are less likely to vote for a member of Congress who votes to impeach the president. Only 36% are more likely.
  • 80% of Trump voters and 76% of Republicans are less likely to vote for a member of Congress who votes for impeachment.

The survey comes as Democrats hurtle toward another impeachment effort against Trump, accusing him of inciting the protests that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.

Trump announced on Sunday a new legal defense team after he parted ways with five of his impeachment lawyers just over a week before his Senate trial is set to begin.

The source said the lawyers left over a difference of opinion on the direction of the defense’s argument.

A whopping 45 Republican senators voted in favor of a motion introduced by GOP Sen. Rand Paul last week to dismiss the impeachment article against Trump as unconstitutional.

The point of order, which was defeated 55-45, argued that the Senate does not have the constitutional authority to try a president after he has left office.

Though the motion was not upheld, it suggests that the Senate will not have the requisite 67-vote supermajority to convict Trump in a second impeachment trial, in which 17 Republicans would have to vote with the Democrats.

“Hyper-partisan Democrats are about to drag our great country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol the likes of which has never been seen in our nation’s history. Instead of doing the nation’s work with their new majorities in the House, the Senate, and the executive branch, Democrats are wasting the nation’s time on a partisan vendetta against a man no longer in office,” Paul said.
