Poll Shows House Dems’ Impeachment Inquiry a Big Flop with Independent Voters

While the Democrats had hoped to capture the nation’s attention — it just isn’t happening.

Though many Democrats are comparing their efforts to unseat Trump to the efforts to impeach President Richard Nixon in the 1970s, the 37th president’s resignation in August of 1974 only happened once it was clear he had lost the support of Republicans.

But Trump is in no danger of losing his party’s support.

An Iowa poll released Monday revealed an 85 percent job approval rating for Trump among Republicans.

This is an increase from March, according to The Des Moines Register.

Those who say they will definitely vote for Trump’s re-election has increased by 9 points.

‘Tremendous job.’ “I think he’s doing a tremendous job, really, as far as I’m concerned,” poll respondent Wayne Sparker, 82, told the Register.

“I’ve been a Democrat all my life, but when he ran for office, when I could see what he was standing up for — for the borders and the different solutions he brought forth — I felt that I definitely needed to vote for him,” Sparker added.

Sparker represents the kinds of voters Trump needs to win in 2020.

Democrats no doubt thought they could sway these same voters with their impeachment spectacle, but it simply isn’t working, according to this latest poll.

President Trump should hope this impeachment drags on as long as possible, turning off more voters to the Democrats with each passing day, in our view.

Democrats will continue to behave as if this impeachment process is somehow the final nail in the President’s political coffin, failing to realize they are doing him a favor.

So go ahead, as we see it.

Keep pushing impeachment, Democrats.

Donald Trump thanks you.
