Saying that public support for House Impeachment Committee Democrats’ process has dropped precipitously is understatement. According to this Monmouth Poll, “24% say they have a lot of trust in how the House impeachment inquiry has been conducted so far, 29% have a little trust, and 44% have no trust at all.”
That’s almost 3 out of 4 people who have little or no trust “in how the House impeachment inquiry has been conducted” thus far. If that’s the case, that’ll require the Democrats to bribe tons of people to reach a positive job approval rating on their coup d’état, otherwise known as their impeachment inquiry.
That’s just the tip of the Democrats’ iceberg. A Politico/Morning Consult poll “found that 81 percent of voters said ‘there is no or little chance they will change their minds.'” At this point, with 2 polls showing that the American people don’t trust the Democrats’ all-impeachment-all-the-time agenda by overwhelming majorities, it’s difficult to picture how Democrats won’t get crushed next November.
That’s just part of the Democrats’ difficulties. Here’s more:
Last Thursday, Nancy Pelosi joined the chorus:
The devastating testimony corroborated evidence of bribery uncovered in the inquiry and that the president abused power and violated his oath by threatening to withhold military aid and a White House meeting in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.… The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into elections. That’s bribery.
Democrats aren’t backtracking upon seeing how the polls are tanking on them. Pelosi’s tripling down on impeachment. Pelosi apparently hasn’t learned the first rule of holes. She’s having a difficult morning so let’s help her with that:
The Democrats’ problem is that the hole keeps getting deeper. Andy McCarthy writes this:
[T]o establish a bribe, corrupt intent must be proved. While it would obviously have been preferable if Trump hadn’t singled out the Bidens, it is nevertheless permissible for presidents to encourage countries receiving American aid to investigate and root out corruption. Indeed, the legislation authorizing aid for Ukraine actually directs the executive branch to certify that Ukraine is making such efforts.
Einstein’s definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” The LFR definition of political insanity is to “double down on blind partisanship, then expecting not to suffer political consequences.”
When three-fourths of the American people don’t trust the Democrats’ impeachment process, that’s a losing fight on steroids. Democrats would be wise to listen to the lyrics to Kenny Rogers’ song ‘The Gambler’, especially this part:
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
and this part:
Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
‘Cause every hand’s a winner
And every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die
in your sleep
Right now, the Democrats’ hand is a loser. It won’t turn into a winner. Period. The part about knowing when to walk away and when to run applies. It’s time to run. It isn’t time to go all-in.
