This will drive the demented Dems cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
A devastating blow as the effort backfires on Democrats (The Hill). After another bad week for Schiff, nobody knows what their next move will be (Washington Times). Another story claims “At a meeting with top GOP senators and Trump administration officials at the White House on Thursday afternoon, Fox News is told there was a consensus that should Trump be impeached by the House, the GOP-controlled Senate should hold a trial rather than tabling the issue” (Fox News). Andrew McCarthy explains why Schiff’s bribery claim doesn’t fly (National Review). Devin Nunes says it’s not Trump but “it’s the Democrats who got caught” (Daily Caller). From Michael Medved: With break in the hearings, impeachment push still seems misguided, but more investigation is not. #Trump‘s mishandling of the Ukraine connection not really in dispute; question involves consequences. Must be a middle ground between ignoring wrong-doing, and over-reacting to it! (Twitter). From David Harsanyi: If selling conspiracy theories to the American public for partisan reasons were a crime, Representative Adam Schiff would be serving consecutive life sentences in Supermax (National Review). From Byron York: Still baffled that House Dems withdrew subpoena to top Bolton aide, did not subpoena Bolton. Testimony clearly a decision for courts. Could have been weeks into process now. But Dems balked. Gives impression they’re in a rush (Twitter). This very entertaining video contains years’ worth of “this is the end of Trump” media hype (Twitter).
Trump’s impeachment opposed by more independents: poll
By Bob Fredericks, NY Post, November 21, 2019 |
Opposition to the House Democrats’ drive to impeach President Trump is growing, as 45 percent of national voters oppose the measure versus 43 percent who support it, according to a poll released Thursday.
The results from the Emerson College survey — which come after several days of open testimony by witnesses organized by Democrats — represent a 6-point swing from Emerson’s October poll released while the House impeachment probe was going on behind closed doors.
At the time, 48 percent of voters supported impeaching the president, compared to 44 percent who opposed.
The biggest swing was among independents, who oppose impeachment now by 49 percent to 34 percent, a reversal from October when they supported impeachment by 48-39.
The poll found that 69 percent of American voters were watching the televised impeachment hearings.
Meanwhile, the president’s support in the Republican primary increased this month to 93 percent against former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh.
Overall, 48 percent of voters polled approved of the job Trump is doing, while 46 percent disapproved.
The Emerson College poll was conducted from Nov. 17-20 and surveyed 1,092 voters nationally.
Of those polled, nearly 34 percent, or 369 people, were registered Republicans. Roughly 37 percent, or 401 people, were registered Democrats. The poll has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
The Emerson survey is the second one released this week that shows favorable results for Trump.
A Marquette Law School poll released on Wednesday found that just 40 percent of voters in the swing state of Wisconsin thought Trump should be impeached compared to 53 percent who felt he should not.
Similar to the Emerson poll, since the impeachment hearings became public, the number of voters who oppose impeachment have increased since Marquette’s October poll.
The Marquette poll, which interviewed 801 registered Wisconsin voters from Nov. 13-17, has a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
