Trump Impeachment Could Lead to GOP Retaking the House in 2020!

Could the reaction to the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump lead to the House being retaken by the Republicans in 2020? According to at least one prominent GOP congressman, that is indeed a possibility.

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa., said the decision by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate was “totally backfiring” and mulled a possible Republican takeover of the House in 2020.

“Let Nancy Pelosi hold the articles of impeachment, because the longer this drags out, the more swing voters and independents are coming to the Republicans in droves,” Reschenthaler recently said on Fox’s “The Story.”

“And,” he continued, “I know some people think it’s a bold statement but I really do think we’re going to take back the House in 2020. And, I think President Trump is going to win because the polls are showing that independents are tired of impeachment, they think it’s a sham and they know that it’s a political hit job.”

Reschenthaler, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, was commenting on the nonpartisan Cook Political Report which showed a shift in two battleground states following the House vote on Trump’s impeachment.

The district represented by Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., who voted for both articles of impeachment, has become a toss-up. Trump carried Cartwright’s district in 2016 by a margin of 53 percent to 44 percent.

The district of Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., also faced a shift after he left the GOP and became a fierce critic of the president, supporting his impeachment in the House. That district, which had been a tossup, was since leaning Republican, the report showed.

“This is totally backfiring on the Democrats and I think Nancy Pelosi let this get way out in front of her,” Reschenthaler said of the Cook report. “We have to remember that the far-left social-justice Democrats are running this party now, but we are seeing that Trump is up in my home state of Pennsylvania. He’s leading the Democrat contenders, sometimes by double digits… and in all those battlegrounds where Democrats hold seats where Trump won, I think we can get a lot of those seats back and take back the House in 2020.”

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer shared a similar sentiment this past October, saying Democrats have been so irrationally focused on impeaching Trump they will hand the House of Representatives back to the GOP.

“Some of them live in a bubble — they think they’re winning,” he said.

Indeed, I say look for an across-the-board GOP sweep of the White House, Senate and House in 2020 due to the growing backlash against the Democrats’ impeachment efforts.

    It is a likely possibility it could happen. For every 1 seat in the Congress a Democrat would gain, 3 or 4 seats by Republicans would be gained.

      The number one thing to remember in all of this for all Americans is that the Democrats have tried desperately to overthrow our election process. This is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution. This is an attack on our citizenship and is essentially an attempt to overthrow our government!! This is a war like strike that can not be tolerated. The Socialist left has got to be defeated in every district in this country. Take back the House and show these traitors their attack will not be tolerated in anyway!!!

    Look, we lost the House because the Republicans couldn’t unite and fulfill the promises they made. Obamacare remains, drug cost are too high, no immigration reforms, etc. Our President has done as much as he can without the full support of the Republican Party. We have idiots like Murkowski, Collins, Alexander, Romney that constantly stand with the Democrats and undermine the agenda of the Party. I’m sick of the “do nothing” Republicans that embarrass us daily, but stand with hand extended asking for our money to support their weak agenda. Don’t get me wrong, we have some strong Republicans, but the current numbers allow a small number of RINOs to tilt the balance of power. I’m scared to death that we’re going to lose the House and the Senate because of the paralyze that weakens the Republican Party. If this happens, we’re going to leave our President in a very unenviable position.

    I am a registered Democrat but I am first and foremost an American citizen who puts GOD, country and family above party affiliations. The DC swamp Democrats do not represent the true feelings of the grassroots American Democrat and as a result are “dead ships in the water” because the grassroot Democrat is quietly abiding our time waiting for the opportunity to put TRUMP back in office in 2020 because the DC swamp Democrat is scaring us to death with their foolish actions and failed foreign idealology endorsements.

    I believe this is the idea. Perhaps in Nervous Nancy’s mind (if she has any left) she feels defeated and at her age, is ready to retire. Many democrats have been in too long so they need some younger, ‘fresh meat’. The dems are socialist, but perhaps they are doing everything deliberately so our President will get re-elected! I have thought this all along, even though I won’t sit back. Jesus has done so much to help our President, I don’t think Jesus will let the people down by allowing our country to become socialist, after all the veterans of war have fought for. I also believe 2 term limits will pass, so the dems might as well give up.

    As time goes by, learning more and more about Ukraine CORRUPT connection to the sons of Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, and Romney. All connected to Ukraine energy company’s, collecting whopping paychecks, sitting on boards they know nothing about, as soon as their parent became an important politician. THESE PARENTS obviously never heard about ” conflict of interest”. Not that they didn’t know, more like they were in favor of their kids getting rich. They all protected each other. By Trump winning OVER Hillary, it upset their corrupt dealings.
    VOTE THEM OUT!!! New laws are needed so this doesn’t happen.

    I think every Republican that cares about our nation will turn out to vote. It will be a landslide for Trump and maybe the house and senate. If it happens a lot of traitors heads will roll!

    Mr Trump is about making Amerca great again, the Democrats want control of the people instead of the people not having to need for government to take care of them. President Trump takes that control away from the Democrats and gives it back to the people where it belongs, yes we need a government structure but not the way the Democrats want it.
    Donald Trump will be president again.

    Taking the House has allowed arrogance to rear its ugly head. With arrogance comes sloppy thinking, or stupidity if you want. Thank goodness, Dems are not so brilliant to start with and definitely not used to thinking while in leadership. Let us not forget that they are expected to represent the poor, all the minorities and the recipients of govanmint’s “charity”. Well, charity might not be the proper word. “Buying votes” is probably more appropriate.

    I suggest we just let things keep on keepinging on like we’re currently doing. I’m pretty convinced in my neck of the woods that the left has shat in their nest for the last time, around here anyways. They’ll be irrelevant after the next election.

    Let the Dems enjoy their power trip high. Don’t cue them to their arrogance. With it comes STUPIDITY. Their own people will vote them out… Unless they are that stupid too.
