New Poll Proves It: Nothing Is Going According To Democrats’ Plan

Democrats are as committed as ever to removing President Donald Trump from office.
The problem for them is that they have no power in the Senate and every time they release information about the president and the faux Ukraine "scandal" -- it further proves this is nothing more than a petty, baseless witch hunt.
And a new poll found that impeachment is only making the president stronger.
According to a Gallup survey released on Monday, a majority of Americans — 51 percent to 46 percent — do not want the Senate to convict Trump and remove him from office.
Support or opposition for Trump’s possible conviction falls down partisan lines with more Democrats opposing conviction than Republicans supporting it.
Gallup found that the implications of the Trump impeachment saga are clear: it is “increasing” his public support.
As was the case for Clinton, the impeachment of Trump has not had a noticeably negative effect on his popular support. In fact, for both presidents, impeachment had the opposite effect of increasing their public approval.
Former President Bill Clinton registered a personal best 73% approval rating immediately after being impeached.
Meanwhile, the Gallup survey found that Trump’s job approval rating is holding steady at 44 percent, up from a low of 39 percent last fall when the impeachment saga began.
It's clear to just about everyone how this is going to play out going forward.
Republicans control a 53-47 majority in the upper chamber. To impeach and remove him from office, Democrats need 67 total votes.
That means all 47 Democrats and 20 Republicans would need to vote in favor of convicting Trump and having him removed from office.
That is never going to happen.
In a matter of weeks, it appears the Democrats latest stunt will soon be over and Trump will be fully acquitted.
