Nolte: 2020 Polls Show Impeachment Is Kamikaze Mission for Democrats

The crazed media and deranged Democrats are about to do something never before seen in America: impeach a president with absolutely no evidence and no specific crime, and they are doing this because they are in too much of a hurry to compel firsthand testimony through the courts.

That doesn’t mean that if the courts compelled firsthand testimony that this testimony would result in evidence — it probably wouldn’t, which is why the Democrats are barreling through, but still… What a fiasco.

And the American people see through it. The joke that was the impeachment hearings only hurt the cause. And why wouldn’t it? There is no there there. There is no evidence of any wrongdoing on the president’s part. None. Not a smidgen. Why? Because there is none, and at least for right now, entitled and offended bureaucrats harrumph-harrumphing, even with a chest full of ribbons, do not qualify as evidence.

The American people see it so well; CNN’s ratings just hit a three-year low.

The American people see it so well; look at these polls…

Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan

Trump now beats all the Democrats, including Bursima Biden, in the only three states that will matter next year: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

As my colleague Charlie Spiering reported, “Prior polls from Firehouse Strategies showed Biden competing evenly with Trump in states like Michigan or beating him in the states of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.”

He adds, “In Wisconsin, Biden went from a 12-point lead of President Trump in March to nine points below the president in December.”

That is a 21-point shift in Trump’s favor in the same poll.

In the Dairy State, Trump trounces Warren by 13, Sanders by 13, Buttigieg by 11, and Bloomberg by 12.

In Michigan, Trump is up five over Biden (they were tied in March), nine over Warren, six over Sanders, and 11 over Buttigieg and Bloomberg.

In Pennsylvania, Trump is up five over Biden (Biden led by seven in March), up seven over Warren, ten over Sanders, six over Buttigieg, and four over Bloomberg.

“Impeachment and removal is opposed by 50.8% of voters in Michigan, 52.2% of voters in Pennsylvania, and 57.9% of voters in Wisconsin,” the pollster found. “Non-partisan voters in Michigan (70%) and Wisconsin (61%) oppose impeachment and removal while non-partisan voters in Pennsylvania slightly support it (46.4% to 40.9%).”

More: “When asked about whether congressional Democrats should be spending their time impeaching Trump or focusing on policy issues, a majority of these battleground state voters choose “focus on policy issues” (MI: 59.4%; PA: 63%; WI: 67.2%).”


While ignoring the fact that former swing states like Missouri, Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida are now Red States, we keep hearing about how the GOP is losing states like Arizona. Well, not after three months of this impeachment hoax they aren’t.

In the same poll, since May, Biden went from a five-point lead to a two-point loss:

The OH Predictive Insights survey released on Monday shows President Trump at 46 percent and Biden with 44 percent in a mock general election contest. The poll also shows the president’s 45 percent approval edging out Buttigieg with 43 percent. Both hypothetical matchups show the pair of Democrat contenders fall within the 3.9-percentage-point margin of error. The poll was conducted between December 3 and 14 and has a sample size of 628 respondents.

In May, the same poll showed Biden leading President Trump 49 percent to 44 percent, showing a dip in national support for the vice president has extended to Grand Canyon state. Conversely, Buttigieg’s support shows a 6 point jump from 37 percent.

Against Trump, Warren is down six; Bloomberg is down seven.

Congressional Districts

These numbers speak for themselves:

Freshman Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-NY) is facing an electorate opposed to impeachment by a 15-point margin of 54 to 39 percent.

Freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK) has an electorate opposed to impeachment 52 to 45, with 36 percent saying they are less likely to vote to re-elect her if she votes to impeach.

A clear majority of 62 percent in Rep. Susie Lee’s (D-NV) district want Democrats to cease impeachment and let the voters decide Trump’s fate.

The pollster adds, “The information flow among people who report seeing, reading or hearing something on impeachment is highly negative for each liberal incumbent. Moreover, voters say they are less likely to vote for a Member of Congress who supports impeachment.”

The problem, though, is that Democrats have boxed themselves in. If they proceed with impeachment, as they seem determined to do, they lose. But if they don’t, they risking demoralizing and enraging their voting base, and they probably believe that is the worst of two terrible options.
