Posted on 12/18/2019 7:42:13 AM PST by Red Badger
New internal polling by the Trump campaign suggests Democrats in pro-Trump districts should avoid supporting impeachment or risk losing re-election.
The new poll, released Tuesday, surveyed 900 likely voters in the 30 congressional districts that President Donald Trump won in 2016 but are currently occupied by Democrats.
According to the survey, voters in those districts oppose impeachment by 10 percentage points, 53-43, and would support a new candidate over the Democratic incumbent by 11 points, 47-36.
A plurality of voters, 38%, said that if their congressperson supported impeachment, it would make them less likely to re-elect that individual. Just 29% said supporting impeachment would make them more likely to vote for the incumbent.
These Democrats already knew they were in trouble before the sham impeachment, but now they are in serious jeopardy, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. By moving forward with her political theater of impeachment, Nancy Pelosi has accomplished two things: she has energized the Presidents supporters and walked her entire majority caucus off the plank.
Conservative groups have recently targeted these Democratic congresspersons as the Dirty 30 and have warned them that voting for impeachment could cost them their seats. New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew was reportedly considering switching his party affiliation to Republican earlier this week because of the tricky politics in his district, causing his staffers to resign en masse.
They won in 2018 by recklessly lying about being “new kind of Democrats not like those nasty DC Democrats you all hate”.
Going to be a lot harder to lie their way back now
Remember also in a Democrat wave election most of these districts were won on very small margins. Not going to take much to flip them back
Not sure it matters now. It will matter in November when we vote them out.
And like John Paul Jones, Trump has not yet begun to fight.
Wait until the campaign starts.
Pray be it so. And also would like to see 60 Republican Senators.
Yes, and the Democrats know this.
That means that this is not about gaining political points.
This whole impeachment nonsense is just a Democrat stall and smokescreen operation.
Democrat leaders have committed crimes.
Their family members have committed crimes.
The Democrat leaders dont want to go to prison, so they are using this impeachment nonsense to try and stall and cloud their rightful imprisonment.
They know this is hurting our country, but they dont care.
They won in 2018 by touting Mueller Mueller Mueller. That has since been debunked. Now they will be touting Impeached Impeached Impeached. The second premise is as phony as the first.
just a question
Is there an impeachment vote tread? Which dem has said the most stupidest thing yet
Impeachment is the campaign.
And Trump will make it work to his advantage.
They should be working and are protesting instead because they are losers who can’t or don’t want a job in the great economy. Why? Because it is Trump’s fault. Impeach Obama retroactively.
I’m not enthused by this poll. 900 responders divided by 30 districts equals 30 responders per district. Now, let’s say there is one district where 28 of the 30 say they are ready to flip back to the Republican candidate - woohoo! But that hides other districts where maybe only 10 of the 30 say they are ready to flip back.
Generalizing, in this case, can lead to the wrong conclusion.
Pelosi tried to get the focus off Ukraine and back onto Russia.
Her son is as deeply involved in Ukraine as Hunter Biden is.
So’s John Kerry’s stepson, Theresa Heinz son.
All this impeachment stuff is rushed because they know the indictments are about to be unsealed and people will be arrested.
Then when it happens, they will cry that Trump has weaponized the DOJ against them and their families for REVENGE! Count on it.
The SHTF soon......................
Good start, but Trump needs to hammer them HARD with negative ads.
My rep (Bustos - IL17) is pals with Durtbin and is in a gerrymandered district who would probably be tough to beat without this. So I see her vote for impeachment as leverage and hopefully a strong conservative who is not a nut will challenge her next year. The last time it was some screwball who mambled 911trutherisms til the state Republican party was forced to withdraw support from him.
But even a nut like that got 38% of the vote. 12 points is not an irreversible margin.
Oh, F them (please)
there’s zero attribution in the article how or why or when they supposedly obtained an internal poll ... no proof whatsoever that these charts are really from an internal poll from the Trump campaign ...
however, several credible news sources specially made it clear that “The Trump campaign released internal polling Tuesday”
poorly written article by a non-entity website ...
When your kid gets in trouble, you get him a good lawyer.
What you dont do is drag the entire country into the sewer to try and coverup his crimes.
These Democrats are really some pieces of shirt.
Don’t worry, most of these voters will have forgotten about the impeachment
Not all of the Dems kids are involved. Sometimes it’s their spouses.................
