According to a new report from Just The News, President Trump is saying that impeachment will backfire on the Democrats.
President Trump is furious about Wednesday afternoon’s second impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives, though he believes the move by the Democrat-led chamber will ultimately harm the incoming administration and Democrats’ future election prospects, political and legal advisers told Just the News Wednesday.
He is also upset about Republicans who have turned on him:
A source close to the president who spoke with him on Monday told Just the News that Trump is reportedly most upset about Republicans he perceives as disloyal, including Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and outgoing Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), whom Trump campaigned heavily for prior to her Jan. 5 loss to Democratic Senator-elect Ralphael Warnock.
Jason Miller, a Trump 2020 senior adviser, said Republican voters perceive Wednesday’s move as a political ploy and are upset at the Republicans who voted to impeach, including Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who is House Republican Conference Chair, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership.
“I think these folks have probably run for their last successful term,” Miller told Just the News on Wednesday. “I think that the voters, when you have this level of anger from the voters, I wouldn’t expect to see these folks back. I think Liz Cheney could possibly be dumped from her leadership position — something that Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz and others have called for — I hope that is the case — how someone like this could be our number three ranking Republican.”
Polling confirms what President Trump is thinking:
Polling in 17 swing states conducted Jan. 10-11 — following the Capitol riot — for Trump’s Save America PAC by pollster John McLaughlin found that 77% of all voters think Congress should make its priority this week dealing with the coronavirus, while only 23% prefer impeaching President Trump. Trump has a 49% job approval rating in the battleground states surveyed by the Save America PAC, and the generic vote for Congress favors the Republicans over the Democrats 49% to 42%.
“This is going to backfire against Democrats, because here they are, they’re taking control of a country that’s still in the midst of a global pandemic and is concerned about the economic recovery,” McLaughlin, who polled for the president’s 2020 campaign, told Just the News on Wednesday. “People are concerned about their jobs, their rent, their families. And here they are, doing the same thing they did last January, where they’re impeaching the president … They should have been taking care of the virus.”
The amount this will backfire will only grow the longer they push this. If Democrats really try and impeach him after he is gone Americans will turn on them quickly.
Americans want Congress to be helping them. Not playing political games.
Even left-wing polling has support for impeachment at 55%. That means that its maximum support is only 5% over the majority(if you believe the polling).
Impeachment and distancing from Trump are even more unpopular among Republicans:
New Axios/Ipsos poll: among Trump supporters, 92% want him to be the 2024 nominee.
Reflects other similar polling showing over 90% would vote for him again right now.
