A survey released earlier today indicates some bad news for Democrats whose mouths are still watering with the thought of impeaching President Donald Trump. Yesterday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would be drafting articles of impeachment. But according to the study, they might also be drafting their walking papers as well.
The American Action Network (AAN) just released the results of a poll that surveyed voters in the congressional swing districts of Reps. Susie Lee (D-NV), Anthony Brindisi (D-NY), and Kendra Horn (D-OK). The survey found that voters in these districts were less likely to vote for their representatives in 2020 if they continued to pursue impeachment.
According to the study, 53% of the voters in Rep. Lee’s district indicated that they would be less likely to support her if she backed impeachment. The same percentage of voters in Rep. Brindisi’s district indicated similar attitudes. In Rep. Horn’s district, 48% said they would be less likely to support their representative if she voted for impeachment.
What’s even more intriguing is the fact that these three representatives serve three of the 31 districts that Trump won in 2016. They were later flipped blue in the 2018 midterm elections. The GOP is hoping to regain 19 of the districts they lost last year, and the result of this poll indicate that it might be a possibility if Democrats continue to tilt at the impeachment windmill.
One of the individuals polled in Lee’s district said:
“She wasn’t unaligned with the impeachment and then she talked with her liberals or whatever you want to call them, then she did. And on what lines, it’s so shaky. It’s a waste of taxpayers’ time and money. What have they done for three years other than try to get rid of Trump?”
Another voter in Rep. Horn’s district gave similar feedback:
“They certainly did not need (Horn) to vote to proceed with the so-called impeachment inquiry hearing but she picked a side. I think we got a lot of people in Washington who haven’t done their job in three years. That’s about it.”
Unfortunately for the Democrats, it seems that they have failed to learn their lesson, and it is doubtful that this poll will compel them to reconsider their impeachment stance as other House Democrats have. It seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Their constituents elected them to get things done. But instead, House Democrats have prioritized their “Orange Man Bad” initiative since they took office earlier this year.
This is not the first poll indicating that impeachment could cost the Democrats control of the House. The progressive media has been pounding the impeachment drum since five minutes after Trump was elected. But now, it appears that the American public might have finally grown weary of the attempts to remove him from office.
First, it was “Russiagate: The Collusion Delusion.” After that movie flopped, they followed up with the sequel: “Ukraine: Now We’ve Really Got Him!” And if the words of Rep. Al Green (R-TX) are true, when this latest effort fails, they will concoct another story with which to bore the country.
Perhaps this is the reason why President Trump urged them to go through with impeachment quickly. If your opponents are tying the noose around their own necks, why stop them?
