Impeachment may have backfired on Democrats.
President’s approval rating highest since his election to office.
GOP score highest since 2005.
Liberals won’t deny a potential second impeachment attempt.
(NewsReady.com) – The true reasons behind the Democrats’ rush to impeach President Donald Trump are a bit murky, to say the least. An attempt to invalidate the results of the 2016 election is the only one that’s blatantly obvious. Some posit it was an attempt to vilify him in the minds of American voters. Others say it was to make House Liberals shine as heroes as they take on a bully. Then there are those who opine that it was to deflect attention away from the debacle of progressive policies enacted in the deep blue states.
Whatever their intent, and it certainly was not Trump’s removal from office, anything positive for him and Republicans was not on the list. However, that’s where the first cousin of Murphy’s Law enters the picture: the law of unintended consequences.
Although still indicative of a country deeply divided along ideological lines, the Gallup poll for the period of January 16-29, 2020 revealed some interesting data:
- President Trump’s overall approval rating is at an all-time high 49%
- Among Republican voters, it’s 94%
- The GOP rating is 51%, the first time over 50% since 2005
Still, the upswing is not totally due to the impeachment malarkey. People across the United States are changing their minds because of the way he is dealing with Iran, the vibrant economy, and foreign trade. While the Democrats are tilting at windmills, he’s focusing on his presidential obligations and the country recognizes his success.
In news of a different kind of poll, Americans are witnessing another trainwreck. The Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) made a shambles of their recent caucuses. The candidates and the typically left-leaning media are taking them to task over what’s happening.
It’s becoming clearer by the day that the Democrats in Congress made a major misstep going forward with the House impeachment and forcing the Senate trial. They simply did not have any evidence that could clear the high-bar the Constitution sets for the removal of a president from office. We can only hope they’ve learned their lesson and won’t try again. However, such
calm irrational voices as Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) aren’t discounting the idea.
