As the mainstream media remains fully committed to this latest “formal impeachment inquiry” designation the Democrats are using, the general populace seems to be slowly warming to the idea. This seems like it would be bad for President Trump…but it might not be.
The numbers are certainly noteworthy:
A whopping 58% of Americans support the House Democrats’ impeachment investigation into Trump, while 49% of Americans believe he should be removed from office, according to new polling by the Washington Post and ABC.
Since July, support for the impeachment investigation has grown by 21 percentage points among Republicans, 25 percentage points among Democrats, and 20 percentage points among those who identify as independents, according to ABC/Washington Post polling.
Americans’ sentiment has shifted dramatically over the last few weeks.
But here’s the catch: Trump needs this impeachment to get rolling, so that it concludes before the 2020 election.
The Democrats unfortunately tipped their hand with the vagueness of the “inquiry” announcement, telegraphing their intentions to keep this charade going for as long as possible.
Trump has since sniffed that out, and is undoubtedly attempting to push Democrats to pull the trigger. His increasingly outrageous behavior, and the GOP’s lack of pushback on that subject, seems to be a coordinated effort to force Nancy Pelosi’s hand.
This may not be the “4D Chess” that some Trump supporters continue to speak about, but it certainly is clever.
