New Poll On Impeachment Reveals The One Thing Democrats Feared Most

Many Americans are sick and tired of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's games and endless attempts to go after President Donald Trump.
And a brand new poll in a critical swing state revealed the one thing Democrats fear most: impeachment is not sitting well with voters.
A focus group, which was convened by Axios and Engagious, found that 9 out of 11 swing voters who took part in Ohio said impeachment is a distraction from the issues they care most about, such as unemployment, border security, bringing troops home, and health care.
Axios reported that swing voters are “expressing a range of unease about impeaching President Trump.”
These voters expressed fears that Democrats latest impeachment witch hunt would hurt the booming economy and result in Congress not getting anything passed.
The participants said impeachment made them feel “concerned,” “uneasy,” “exhausted,” “sad that they’re [Democrats] so focused on it,” and “a big distraction from what we could be doing.”
Axios explained, “If such sentiments last and play out on a larger scale across pivotal states, it spells trouble for Democrats unless they can reframe what they’re trying to accomplish.”
Below are a few examples from Axios on what the participants said:
- Brad P., a 40-year-old Trump voter, called impeachment “a never-ending drama” that “shows to me these people are completely out of touch with everyday Americans’ lives.”
- Two people doubted that Trump asked Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, and others did not think it warrants impeachment if he did. “Is there undeniable proof?” asked one man.
- Participants similarly had negative things to say about the Democrats.
- “They need to focus on the real issues,” said Judy D., a 60-year-old Trump voter, said. “[Nancy] Pelosi hates him so bad, I just think she needs to drop it and worry about the country.”
- Deborah G., a 56-year-old Clinton voter, said, “They need to be concentrating on the country, not what he’s doing wrong,”
- Eric B., a 34-year-old Trump voter, said, “They hit a big strike on Mueller, so this is trying to get another base hit on the president.”
- Richelle W., a 40-year-old Trump voter, said, “It’s become more of … ‘Destroy the other party’ instead of build the whole country up.”
- Rocco P., a 40-year-old Trump voter, offered this advice to Democrats, saying, “Just drop it. Beat Trump at the ballot box.”
- Lisa A., who was a Clinton voter, didn’t think impeachment was a great idea, but said, “I believe in the checks and balances,” and “I’m not scared of the process.”
“While a focus group is not a statistically significant sample like a poll, these responses show how some voters are thinking and talking about the 2020 election in crucial counties,” the Axios report said.
People are so fed up with Pelosi and her antics that Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham introduced a resolution Tuesday to expel her from the House of Representatives.
A few weeks ago, a so-called whistleblower filed a complaint about Trump's phone call back in July with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
Soon after the complaint, Democrats immediately seized on the opportunity to go after Trump and opened an impeachment inquiry.
The whistleblower admittedly did not even hear what was said.
Democrats are so desperate to take down Trump before the 2020 election they are trying to remove him from office over a call that neither they nor the whistleblower even heard.
And now Republicans are actually trying to remove Pelosi from Congress over all of this.
