Democrats jumped into the impeachment fight with both feet under the assumption it would be a political winner.
Either they would remove Trump from office or so damage the President that it would be impossible for Trump to win re-election.
And Adam Schiff did a double take when he saw the results of this new impeachment poll.
When the impeachment investigation kicked into high gear, the Fake News Media made a big show of national polls that showed an uptick in support for impeaching the President and removing Donald Trump from office.
But as usual, the Fake News Media was trying to mislead the public by painting a false picture that the country turned on the President and supporting impeachment is the only way Republicans can save their skins in 2020.
The truth of the matter is impeachment is very unpopular in the states Democrats need to win in order to win back the White House and the presidency.
A New York Times Upshot/Siena College Poll released on Wednesday shows residents of six battleground states oppose impeaching and removing President Trump from office by a 52 percent to 44 percent margin, but support the House impeachment inquiry by a 51 percent to 44 percent margin.
Broken down even further, the poll’s results show that 42 percent of respondents oppose both the House impeachment inquiry and impeaching and removing the president, while 41 percent support both the House impeachment inquiry and impeaching and removing the president. Eight percent of respondents support the House impeachment inquiry but oppose impeaching and removing the president, while nine percent were categorized having “other” views.
Registered voters in six key battleground states–Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin were surveyed in the poll.
By traveling down the impeachment road, Democrats made sure this will be the issue that dominates the 2020 campaign.
And this polling shows the Democrats will lose an election that is a referendum on impeachment.
