Dems Admit Impeachment Could Be A Big Mistake for the Party

While the House Democrats’ Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald Trump is advancing to a new phase with some of the “closed-door” testimony from witnesses being made public, some Democrats are willing to admit that the whole thing could be damaging to their party.

Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn, of South Carolina, says that he believes that the House Democrats’ impeachment investigation into President Trump could hurt his party at the ballot box in 2020. Clyburn, 79, was elected to Congress in 1993 and is serving his party in the House as majority whip. Clyburn appeared on CNN over the weekend and asserted that while impeachment could backfire on the Democrats, the party’s political concerns should not drive the process.

“Sure, it could, and that would make this whole process much more political than I would like this to be,” Clyburn told State of the Union guest host, Dana Bash after she asked if impeachment proceedings could harm Democrats in 2020.

“I believe that this whole process to me is about preserving this republic, protecting the democracy that we hold dear, and I do not believe that we are to allow our political feelings to get in the middle of this,” Clyburn continued.

Americans slightly favor impeaching President Trump and removing him from office. An average of nationwide polls on the question show about 48% of Americans support removing Trump from office while 45% oppose ousting him.

Much more telling, and what should be concerning to the Democrats as they assess their chances of beating Trump in 2020, is polling on impeachment in states important to Trump’s reelection chances that seem to favor the president.

Voters in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Arizona oppose impeaching and removing Trump from office by a 10-point margin, 53% to 43%.

    Democrats are unwilling to accept the results of the 2016 election,so yes their political feelings are what has driven the entire investigation and resulting impeachment preceding against Donald Trump to start with .

    Far better than vainly trying to impeach Trump would be for James Comey to run against him in 2020.

    President Trump has served us well as citizens of the greatest country in the world. He puts us first and then we do what we can for others. Trump is the first President in my life time to focus on us rather than trying to be popular with other countries. Can you imagine what could have been done for our own homeless and hungry people with the money Obama gave to Iran!!! Think about it and you will see what we are saying.

    Democrats have no one in the running that is even close to POTUS! So they would rather spend time trying to impeach instead of trying to win the 2020 elections! Give it up Pelosi! Give AMERICA A GREAT XMAS PRESENT>>>RESIGN! Leave the 2020 polls to the American people and let it be what we the people want not you the congress wants. Quit wasting time and find a good runner up if at all possible! GO TRUMP… WE THE PEOPLE WILL VOTE FOR YOU AGAIN! IT is what it IS!

    Is this the same poll showing Hillary beating Trump by a huge percentage in 2016. Every result of every poll I’ve taken online concerning impeachment results a positive outcome for President Trump. The numbers are never below the high seventy percent and most are in the high eighties.

    Rather than the Democrats still unbelievably chasing the impeachment song, why don’t they tell us what they have done for the American People the last 3 years. Though maybe, trying to advance their own agenda of looking to be elected again counts for something. Our Country has been in a standstill for the past 36 months if we weigh their accomplishments.

    Nadler and Schiff have hurt the Democratic Party beyond belief. Registered Democrats I know say impeachment is partisan and wrong! If they continue they lose support and votes for 2020 and it isn’t going to get any better.

    The Polls can be and are being manipulated. TRUMP’s rally attendance proves that the Democrats are in deep trouble come 2020. TRUMP is this generation’s George Washington and we haven’t seen the biggest shock yet! There will be televised trials and many politicians will swing. Hang On, the best is yet to come!

    America it would be a big mistake to elect a Democrat as the President of the United States because corruption will continue it will get much worse and it will affect the American people, with socialism, freebies, hard-working Americans. If you have been paying attention to what the Democrats are doing they are wasting our tax dollars on trying to impeach or get rid of a great president Donald Trump who is doing America great, if a Democrat is elected as president of United States our tax dollars will be totally gone and we will be double and triple taxed to fulfill the corrupted agenda America don’t let this happen we are on the path to once again being great

      No such thing as President Trump being evil. You should look at your own party first. He has already earned the best president since Regan label. He will, much to the democrat socialists chagrin, be elected for an additional 4 years.

    Certain states changed some election laws to favor the party that controls that state, in many cases making voting changes that have only two democrats running for a Congress or Senate seat.

    Others are using state drivers licenses to verify voters instead of existing state voter registration cards, allowing illegals with green cards to vote, and turning away legal voters who have homes in different states, they have to vote in state of permanent residence.

    Other states changed their laws regarding how the handle races that are razor thin edges, one or more use computers artificial Intelligence to pick winner and loser, in 2018 second place by only couple hundreds of votes came in third, Artificial Intelligence on computers is only as good as those who programmed that computer, individual states are changing some laws that will affect a nation wide vote

    It is wrong for the Democrats to make up stuff to remove a President that the people voted into office. Mr. Trump was voted in because the people did not like the way the Democrats were running our country. The Democrats did not like the changes Our President was making. He kept all the promises he made to the people.

    A president should not be impeached when HE DID NOTHING ILLEGAL! Every lawyer who is honest, even Dershbag, said Trump did nothing wrong! Ill say this: when we have a Demonrat as president, the Republicans should do the same thing to him/her – Say impeachment like crazy for everything that the Republicans don’t like – do a political hit job, make up garbage, and act like the Demonrat deplorables are acting!
