Last week, the Mueller team intentionally leaked their list of questions they want to ask President Donald Trump. Many believe the leak was done just to help embarrass Trump and to try to force him to answer the questions, some of which seemed to be written in such a way as to entrap him in some lie that they could then use against him.
A few days later, US District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, accused Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of lying, seeking ‘unfettered power’ and of being more interested in bringing down President Trump than the initial scope of his investigation.
Also last week was the bombshell statement by former New York City Mayor and new member of the Trump legal team, Rudy Giuliani, that Trump knowingly paid back his attorney Michael Cohen, the $130,000 he paid Stormy Daniels to be quiet about her allegations about Trump.
All of this has many Democrats drooling at the thought of somehow impeaching Donald Trump and removing him from office. Some are resting their hopes on possible obstruction of justice charges to impeach and remove Trump, but they forget that Bill Clinton was charged with obstruction of justice but was not removed from office after impeachment proceedings were brought against him.
How do voters feel on the topic? Do they think that Democrats running in the midterm elections this year should focus on a Trump impeachment or should they focus more on the policies that they differ with Trump on? Rasmussen Reports asked that question to likely voters and the response may surprise you.
“In fact, just 15% of Likely U.S. Voters believe focusing on the president’s possible impeachment is a better campaign strategy for Democratic congressional candidates than focusing on policy areas where they disagree with Trump. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% think focusing on policy differences is a better political strategy. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure.”
Even the majority of Democrats who responded to the survey said they think candidates should focus more on policy issues than on the possibility of impeachment.
So, do voters in general believe that Trump will be impeached? According to the survey:
“Twenty-five percent (25%) say the president will be impeached before serving his first full-term in office. That compares to 29% in the previous survey.”
It seems that the mainstream media are the ones who want the American public to believe that Trump will be impeached but fortunately, their media propaganda doesn’t seem to be working as fewer and fewer people think that Trump will be impeached.
If the chance of Trump being impeached is shrinking and more people, including Democrats, believe the midterm elections should be about policies instead of possible impeachment, then what are Trump’s chances of being re-elected in 2020? According to the Rasmussen Reports survey:
“Forty-one percent (41%) now believe the president will be reelected in 2020, up from 34% in late December. Twenty-six percent (26%) still think Trump will be defeated by the Democratic nominee, but 31% felt that way four months ago.”
The bottom line, is that fewer voters (Republicans, Democrats and Independents) believe that Trump will be impeached and more voters (Republicans, Democrats and Independents) believe that Trump will be re-elected in 2020. Hopefully, this will help Republicans in this year’s midterm elections to retain control of both houses of Congress.
