With Washington DC not-so-subtly devolving into a nightmarish caricature of what it was once believed to be, there are few taboo subjects left on Capitol Hill.
Our public servants sling mud at one another day in and day out, on our dime, often drudging up some of the ugliest personality traits that a person can have. It’s cutthroat to the point where gamesmanship and sportsmanship are laughable mentionables, and that’s about it.
We have the old guard and the new guard. The red and the blue. Left and right.
And, now in the debate over the possibility that President Trump has obstructed justice, as outlined in the Mueller report, we have impeachment or no impeachment.
Establishment democrats such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have all but ruled out the idea, while the millennial vote-seeking younglings in the party shout the “I” word from the rooftops.
But, as with all matters of government, the only thing that truly should matter is what We The People think.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post national survey released Friday, support for impeachment dropped to 37, down from 40 percent in January. Support of the president’s ouster hit a survey high of 49 percent in August. Support rose for the measure to 62 percent among Democrats, yet tumbled 36 percent with independents. Only 10 percent of Republicans support it.
This could be bad news for the “resistance” minded democrats, especially now that several of their 2020 candidates have framed their campaigns around opposition to the President.
