Latest Poll Shows Pelosi's Impeachment Gamble May Have Cost Her The House
Pelosi and House Dems thought it wise to attempt to impeach the president of the United States. They rushed an impeachment case through the House that not a single GOP Rep voted for it and then expected to see results in the Senate. They should have known better and now they are reaping what they sowed. A recent poll shows that Americans now favor House GOP Reps more than they do House Dems and many popular Dems, like Pelosi, have seen a serious rise in their disapproval ratings. This likely means America is ready for a change in House leadership come November.
"More Americans approve of the job congressional Republicans are doing than of congressional Democrats' performance -- 40% vs. 35%. The rating for Republicans in Congress has risen six percentage points since late October, before the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the same period, congressional Democrats' approval rating has edged down three points and disapproval has climbed five points, from 57% to 62%."
"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's 39% favorability is roughly the same as it was in October, but her unfavorable rating has climbed -- from 50% in October to 55% now -- and nearly matches her highest unfavorable of 56% that came just before the 2010 midterm elections in which Republicans regained control of the House. She receives a 71% favorable rating from her party's base."
"Republicans in Congress appear to have benefited from the impeachment of the president, as they are currently enjoying improved job approval ratings. Likewise, the favorable ratings of Republicans Trump and McConnell have risen after the impeachment. Meanwhile, the public's ratings of congressional Democrats and Democratic leaders are the same or slightly worse than before impeachment, given no change in favorability or approval but higher unfavorable and disapproval ratings."
House Dems only have themselves to blame. Legal Expert Jonathan Turley told them they did not have a case and they ignored him. They rushed their whole thing and didn't have the evidence to back their claim. There were theories that the impeachment attempt was all a ploy to make GOP Senators look bad, but it seems if that was the plan, it blew up in Dem's faces big time.
