Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are adamant about destroying President Trump.
And it may just be their undoing.
This new poll shows that Pelosi and Schumer are on the verge of making the biggest mistake of their lives.
Despite near endless calls from Democrats both in Congress and across the country to impeach President Trump, a new explosive poll shows that doing so could be a disaster of epic proportions for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
And if Democrats vote to impeach President Trump, it may just end up guaranteeing him re-election in 2020.
History shows that brining up impeachment charges against a president, especially in the modern era, usually results in a massive backfire for whichever party is conducting the impeachment proceedings.
When Republicans voted to impeach President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, the result was a political backlash directed against the GOP.
And in the 1998 midterm elections, Republicans suffered because of it, even though history almost always gives the opposition party a major boost in midterm elections and Republicans were expecting to pick up several seats that year.
If Democrats bring up impeachment charges against President Trump, it won’t be difficult to see a scenario where the public views Trump as the victim of a clear political ploy by Pelosi and Schumer, and then punishes the Democrats at the ballot box for it in 2020.
Such a scenario would almost certainly guarantee President Trump’s re-election while likewise giving Republicans a very strong chance of holding the Senate and retaking the House of Representatives.
And yet, this is exactly what Pelosi and Schumer are about to do.
The Daily Caller reports, “The support for President Donald Trump’s impeachment is growing among Democrats, according to a CNN poll released Sunday.”
“April’s poll found 69% of Democrats favored impeachment, and a month later, 76% of Democrats support the measure, CNN reported. It also showed 75% of Democratic respondents believe the investigations into Trump are justified, while 74% of Republican respondents believe they are not,” adds the Daily Caller.
With more and more Democrats pushing for impeachment, it may only be a matter of time until Pelosi relents and allows the process to move forward, despite her knowing that it could severely damage her party in the 2020 elections.
And the latest polls show that Americans remain overwhelmingly opposed to impeachment.
“The poll showed 41% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s impeachment, which is an increase of 4% from the poll CNN released in April. There are still 54% of Americans who don’t think Trump should be impeached, with 5% having no opinion on the issue,” adds the Daily Caller.
These numbers are setting up what could be a political bloodbath for Democrats if they keep pushing for impeachment.
And almost none of them seem to realize it, except for Nancy Pelosi herself who so far has been hesitant to call for impeaching the President out of fear that she will lose control of the House of Representatives in the process.
