The bad news keeps piling up on Democrats. They pull out all the stops to prevent a Trump second term, but nothing sticks.
Democrats are their own worst enemy. And their futility and desperation provide fodder for mocking.
Russian collusion collapsed, and Schiff and team sacrificed Bob “Mr Integrity” Mueller at the alter of deceit.
After that failed, Nadler and team fabricated grounds for impeachment. The first meetings backfired, as Lewandowski publicly bitch-slapped the hapless rubes. But Schiff hammered on with his own hearings, and we know where that went.
So who is the leader of the Democratic Party?
Hillary Clinton? I wrote that just to mock the Dems. The Clintons are so yesterday’s news, it’s a wonder the media gives them any coverage. Bill Clinton lies in the wasteland of the #MeToo movement, while two-time loser Hillary hangs on to remnants of a coattail.
What of the party leader AOC or her surrogate Nancy Pelosi? No and no.
What about Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, or Jerry “No Neck” Nadler? No, no, and no.
I guess Barack Obama remains the Baby Daddy of the Democrats. If that is the case, then Democrats might want to keep searching for a step-dad.
A few months back, Newsweek reported:
President Donald Trump’s job approval rating this week averaged across major polls surpassed that of his predecessor President Barack Obama at the same time eight years ago, giving some actual good news to Trump who is known to cite only conservative-leaning polls to bolster his image.
Trump’s approval rating on Wednesday was 44.3 percent, according to a Real Clear Politics average of more than a half-dozen major polls. That is higher than Obama’s average approval rating of 43.9 percent on September 18, 2011, by the same measure.
The 45th president’s average approval rating surpassed that of his predecessor on Monday and stayed on top for the next two days. Trump’s average approval rating on Monday was 44.1 percent compared to Obama’s 43.9 percent on September 16, 2011, and 44 percent on Tuesday compared to Obama’s 43.8 percent on September 17, 2011.
Ouch! After all Democrats have done to torpedo Trump, he’s ahead of Baby Black Jesus at this stage of his presidency.
And if Democrats could be completely honest with themselves (they can’t), they would admit that Obama’s number are as believable as a snowstorm in Phoenix in summer.
The article goes on to reference Trump pounding his chest over 50% approval with Rasmussen.
Trump has not tweeted this week about achieving a higher average approval than Obama, whom he has continued to criticize. But on Monday, the day he came out ahead of Obama, Trump tweeted an image of himself with “50% APPROVAL RATING” attributed to the conservative Rasmussen Reports, which consistently rates him higher than other major polls.
That was September. Democrats assumed they’d surpass Trump by now, but no!
All hat, no cattle.
Polls showed that while the media helped gin up hype over impeachment, at the end of the day, Democrats were left holding the bag. Look at some of the polls:
Real Clear Politics’ average of multiple polls on November 10 — two days before Schiff’s hearings began — found that 51 percent of Americans supported impeachment, while 42 percent were opposed. A majority of Americans wanted impeachment, by a 9 percent margin. However, After 11 days of testimony and cross-examination, the tide shifted.
RCP’s average on November 21 showed that support for impeachment had fallen to 48 percent, no longer a majority, while opposition grew to 45 percent. The clamor for impeachment had shrunk to a 3 percent edge. And RCP wasn’t the only poll showing downward trending for impeachment, and upward trend for not impeaching.
FiveThirtyEight’s national-poll average found the pro-impeachment view shriveling from 50.3 percent in mid-October to 46.3 percent today. Simultaneously, opposition has climbed from 43.8 percent to 45.6 percent. Next, Emerson University polling dropped from 48 percent in October to 43 percent last week. Meanwhile, opposition grew from 44 percent to 45 percent.
Worse yet, among independent voters support for impeachment collapsed from 48 percent in October to 34 percent today. Opposition soared from 35 percent to 49 percent.
You don’t need to be a mathematician to see the trend lines here. But let’s look at one more poll.
In Wisconsin, impeachment polling dropped from 44 percent to 40 percent, while opposition has risen, from 51 percent to 53 percent. In short, impeachment is a loser in almost all the swing states.
One Democrat complained to The Hill: “After three years, the country was sick of hearing about Russia, and now the average American either doesn’t understand or doesn’t care about the case we’re making on Ukraine.”
I disagree. The country knows full well what’s happening. Thus the polling numbers. But things will get worse for Democrats after the IG reveals what he learned. We already know that a “rogue” FBI agent altered the documents. So now we get to see how President Trump handles the news.
