I don’t mean in the Senate.
That’s where it’s doomed to be starved to death and dismissed with a negligent kick (the McConnell strategy), but politically. Impeachment was never going to make it through the Senate. But the Dems had hoped that it would have political windage. Instead it’s dying in the wind.
Slightly more than half of all registered voters, 51 percent, think that President Trump should not be impeached and removed from office, while 45 percent say he should be impeached and removed. This compares to a November 26 poll in which 48 percent of voters said the president should not be impeached, while 45 percent said he should be. Today’s poll is the first time since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry that more than half of voters say that Trump should not be impeached
The Q poll also shows Trump’s election numbers improving against the likely Dem candidates all of whose numbers are also underwater.
mong top Democratic presidential candidates, none are especially well-liked by registered voters:
a mixed 44 percent favorable to 47 percent unfavorable for Biden;
a mixed 44 – 48 percent rating for Sanders;
a negative 38 – 45 percent rating for Warren;
a split 31 – 29 percent rating for Buttigieg;
a split 24 – 23 percent rating for Klobuchar;
and a negative 21 – 40 percent rating for Bloomberg.
These are very bad numbers for Warren and, obviously, Bloomberg.
Impeachment has backfired on the Dems.
