Despite the House Democrats’ most recent shenanigans, the American people have no new “appetite for impeachment.”
A new Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted over the weekend shows that “a plurality of registered voters still opposed impeachment, with little sign of movement toward supporting such steps.”
- Only 36% of Americans want impeachment.
- Only 33% of Independents want impeachment.
And a new Reuters poll conducted this week echoed that sentiment: “Americans overall are less supportive of impeaching Trump than they were months ago…”
- Only 37% of Americans want impeachment.
- Only 32% of Independents want impeachment.
The American people not interested in impeachment, and even House Democrats admit Pelosi’s statement didn’t offer any “structural changes” to their impeachment fixation.
It’s not surprising, because they’ve been here before…
House Democrats spent August pretending that the House was amidst what Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called “formal impeachment proceedings.”
They weren’t. It was imaginary impeachment.
In September, Chairman Nadler trampled over his previous tough talk when he said: “Some call this process an impeachment inquiry. Some call it an impeachment investigation. There is no legal difference between these terms, and I no longer care to argue about the nomenclature.”
The House still wasn’t in impeachment proceedings. It was still imaginary impeachment.
And yesterday, even though Speaker Pelosi simultaneously undercut her Judiciary Chairman and surrendered to the socialists in her party when she spoke of her “impeachment inquiry,” “nothing legislatively has yet changed.” The House Democrats are still in the middle of an imaginary impeachment.
- The House has NOT authorized impeachment proceedings, and the Speaker’s statement – just like the Judiciary Committee’s sham vote – doesn’t change that fact.
- Anyone who thinks the House has begun formal impeachment proceedings should ask whether the entire House has taken a vote to authorize them. It hasn’t.
- Even the House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern (D-MA), when asked if there is a plan to have the House vote to open a formal impeachment inquiry, responded “Not that I know of.”
House Democrats have made it clear for more than two years that they’ve been fixated on impeachment for political purposes and nothing else.
- Chairman Jerry Nadler won his chairmanship by promising his fellow Democrats way back in 2017 that he’s the “strongest member to lead a potential impeachment.”
- Rep. Al Green (D-TX) must know that voters prefer President Trump’s policies to Democrats’ socialism, because he recently warned: “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected.”
Democrats are in a hole…and they keep digging! Democrats’ own polling shows that the American people are “more aware of Democratic investigations than the bills they’ve passed.” This incessant impeachment talk certainly won’t fix that. They have wasted away their majority instead of joining Republicans to:
- pass the USMCA
- rebuild America’s infrastructure
- end surprise billing
