Adam Schiff never thought things would turn out the way they did.
The House Intelligence Committee Chairman launched his impeachment witch hunt steadied by his faith that he could trick the American people into supporting a coup to remove Donald Trump from office.
But this brand new poll was bad news for Adam Schiff.
An early batch of polls showing rising support for impeachment convinced Democrats the public was on their side.
However, it soon became clear impeachment was a partisan witch hunt and a typical political sham.
That’s when Democrats were hit with a series of disastrous polls.
One was from Monmouth University, where a majority said it was better to try to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box in 2020 than go through with impeachment.
The majority of Americans believe it makes more sense to focus on the 2020 election rather than to rely on impeachment in order to get President Trump “out of office,” a Monmouth University poll released on Tuesday shows.
The poll, taken October 30–November 3, 2019, among 908 U.S. adults, found that the majority of Americans — regardless if they support the partisan impeachment inquiry or not — believe it is better to focus on the 2020 election rather than an impeachment trial in order to remove Trump from office.
According to the poll, 59 percent of Americans agree that “if you want Trump out of office, it makes more sense to focus on next year’s election rather than go through an impeachment process now.” Even 39 percent of those who support pursuing impeachment in the hopes of removing Trump also believe that it makes more sense to focus on the election. Only 34 percent of the general public disagrees.
“Even many who would like to impeach Trump seem to feel that beating him at the polls in 2020 is actually a better strategy for ousting him from office,” Monmouth University Polling Institute’s Director Patrick Murray stated.
But Democrats don’t want to take the risk of seeing Trump on the ballot in 2020.
They know he is strongly positioned to win.
That’s why they are desperately trying to remove him from office in this sham impeachment.
Unfortunately for Adam Schiff and his allies, this poll shows the American people are wise to their game.
