In Depth Analysis Of The Failed Attempt To Overthrow The Results Of The 2016 Election: Impeachment Already Backfiring On Democrats As Trump & RNC Donations Spike & Swing Voters Accuse Dems Of Ignoring Important Issues
After the announcement, Democrats also returned to their home states and were faced with anti-impeachment protests from their own constituents, especially "red state Democrats," who won elections in conservatives districts.
The New York Times‘ Daily podcast recently followed Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), a vulnerable Democrat in a red district who came out in favor of an impeachment inquiry, to three town halls, where she was confronted by upset constituents.
Attendees shouted “Not true! We didn’t ask for that,” “Fake news,” and “Do your job,” at the town halls.
Slotkin told them, “I’m going to wait for facts,” and “look at them judiciously.” One attendee asked her why she wrote an op-ed that came out in support of an impeachment inquiry before the facts were out: “If you’re waiting, why did you send the op-ed?”
One attendee told Slotkin that she liked her at first, but “when you fell off the cliff for me was when you joined the coup against our president.” That comment was greeted with agreement from others.
Internal Republican polling showed that "in 95 battleground districts, 67 percent of independents viewed impeachment as politically motivated, as reported by Breitbart News and The Hill.
The poll found that a Republican candidate who opposes impeachment leads a pro-impeachment Democrat 50 percent to 42 percent. It also found that in districts that Trump carried in 2016 that are currently held by Democrats, the Republican candidate holds a 54 percent to 38 percent lead.
Since Breitbart is more of a conservative leaning website, we decided to check out some other recent reports from other sources, namely a recent focus group of Ohio swing voters, conducted in Mahoning County, which is a county President Trump lost in 2016 by 4,000 votes, reported on by the left leaning Axios on October 14, 2019.
The small group of swing voters used for the focus group highlights the public perception of this impeachment push, especially right on the heels of the entire Russian collusion fiasco that Democrats and the media pushed for over three years, just to rush towards the next "reason" for impeachment.
Swing voters are "uneasy" regarding impeachment for reasons which ranged from hurting the economy to concerns that "House Democrats are more invested in going after Trump than in helping people."
Via Axios: "Why it matters: If such sentiments last and play out on a larger scale across pivotal states, it spells trouble for Democrats unless they can reframe what they're trying to accomplish."
The problem for Democrats in "trying to reframe what they are trying to accomplish," is recent history. For three years, since before President Trump was even inaugurated some Democrat politicians were screaming impeachment, just do a search for "Maxine Waters Impeachment" and the amount of results are astounding going back to right after the Nov. 2016 election.
For more than two years, Democrats like Adam Schiff were on record, publicly touting "evidence" that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, yet the nearly two year investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no conspiring, or coordination by anyone in the Trump campaign, or any American, with Russia, officially killing that narrative.
Independents, swing voters and Republicans, all "see" what Democrat politicians are trying to do and it is backfiring on those same Democrats so heavily invested in damaging President Trump's reelection chances, that they have now backed themselves into a corner with no way to disentangle themselves.
Another quote from the Axios piece: "The big picture: 9 of the 11 participants raised their hands to say impeachment is a distraction from the issues they care most about — things like wages and unemployment, border security, bringing troops home, and health care costs and access."
Not only are Democrats alienating Independent and swing voters that have been watching the three year push towards impeachment, they have also managed to invigorate and energize those already supportive of President Trump, as well as providing the perfect fundraising pitch, which has seen spectacular results for the GOP and President Trump, but they have also given Republicans ammunition to use in targeting Democrats in swing districts.
The Republican National Committee will spend $350,000 on a multi-media buy as part of a strategy that includes digital ads, text messages and phone calls starting Tuesday calling on Democratic House members to “stop the madness.” The effort is primarily targeted at the 31 Democrats in districts President Donald Trump carried in 2016.
“We’ll emphasize it’s time to move on,” RNC spokesman Rick Gorka told McClatchy. “There are real issues they could be working on, anything but this.”
The video ads are practically writing themselves, using the Democrats own actions against them, as with these videos published on President Trump's YouTube channel:
The GOP has their own set of clips being released, using Democrats' public statements to make the case to #StopTheMadness, which will be shown at the end of this article.
Republican politicians and GOP insiders see this latest coup attempt by Democrats as a way to try to take back control of the House of Representatives in 2020, where radical liberals and Democrat diehards will stick with the Democrat party, but independents and swing voters will be so alienated they will either cast a vote for Trump in "protest" or simply stay home and refuse to support any Democrat candidate.
Liberals pushed party leaders into this corner, but the signs so far from recent focus groups, swing state voters, and independents, indicate that while bowing to their radical base to guarantee their continued support, they may have just handed the 2020 Presidential election to Trump, and may have sacrificed the Democrats control over the House of Representatives.
Given the fact that the Senate is controlled by Republicans, and any impeachment trial would need two-thirds support in the Senate to vote to convict and remove the president, this was always a lose/lose proposition for Democrats, something Nancy Pelosi knew, which was why she held off the radicals in her party for so long, but by caving to that fringe of the party, she has jeopardized everything they gained in to 2018 midterm elections.
