President Trump Turns the Impeachment Show to His Advantage

With President Trump's acquittal a virtual certainty, it's obvious that the purpose of the Impeachment Show is not to determine if Donald Trump has done anything worthy of removal from office. It's to help get votes for Democrats in November of 2020.  So it's just sort of a government-subsidized campaign ad for Democrats.

The problem the Democrats have is it is backfiring. People are losing interest given that they actually have important things to do in their own lives. The Republicans are scoring points. And Pelosi and Schumer realize that they've stepped into some chewing gum (or something else) that they now cannot get rid of without more damage to their cause.

Meanwhile, President Trump is hosting his famously successful rallies while holding the whole Impeachment Show up to ridicule.

Where was President Trump last night while House Dems (with the notable exception of Tulsi Gabbard) were voting to impeach him? He was in Battle Creek, Michigan – a critical swing state – doing what Trump does best: campaigning.

And understandably so. Polls suggest that Democratic Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were right to initially oppose impeachment, because at least half of voters – instead of being swayed by Pelosi's arguments about a sworn duty to defend the constitution – believe the Dems have wrongfully persecuted the president, and are ready to reelect him in 2020, even if there's no precedent for a president being reelected following impeachment.

According to Bloomberg News, not exactly a Trump-friendly outlet, recent polls have shown weakening support for Trump’s removal from office, and in states including Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, data and interviews suggest impeachment has only galvanized support for President Trump.

Here's a good example of President Trump using the whole thing to give Congresswoman Debbie Dingle a bad night:

Here's what is really happening:

For all their deceit, duplicity, and lying, here's what the left has for their efforts.

Across the battleground states of the midwest, polls and anecdotal evidence suggest Trump will have the upper hand in 2020. Some 52% of registered Wisconsin voters oppose Trump’s impeachment and removal from office, according to a recent Marquette University Law School poll. The amount who support impeachment is just 40%.

Independent voters across the state sing Trump's praises.

Trump also enjoys a receptive audience across swaths of Wisconsin. Dawn Anderson, 60, said that she and her husband are independents who voted for Trump in 2016 and can’t wait to do it again next year.

“I’m mad,” she said in an interview outside a Woodman’s Markets grocery store in Kenosha. “He shouldn’t have to defend himself the way he is.”

Trump won Wisconsin by some 22,000 votes in 2016, a margin of less than 1%. It was the first time a Republican won the state since 1984.

We could go on, but the point has been made. The Democrat leaders in the House and Senate, at the insistence of their congressmen and senators, have dug a jumbo-sized hole for themselves and their party. So they've made matters worse for themselves.

2020 remains a real struggle for any of the floundering Democrat presidential candidates. Now it has just been made worse.

Good job, Nancy and Chuck. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks.
