Most would agree that the swamp creatures in D.C. have not bothered to learn what Americans think about impeachment.
Democrats are so eager to destroy former President Donald Trump’s legacy and brand him a “traitor” that they ignore that nearly 74 million Americans voted for him.
Now, Americans are letting Congress know loud and clear what they think about this.
A majority of battleground voters want Congress to move on from impeaching Trump, according to a January 12 memo from the pollster John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates.
The survey examined 800 battleground voters in key states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin — and found the majority oppose both another impeachment attempt and Big Tech dramatically increasing censorship.
The memo, which was addressed to Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller, found 60 percent of all voters view impeachment as “another waste of time and money.”
An even greater percentage, 77 percent, believe the 117th Congress should prioritize dealing with the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, with less than a quarter preferring to prioritize impeaching Trump.
Nearly three-fourths also believe that the efforts of the Democrats, to impeach Trump, are “politically motivated to prevent the President from running again, stripping his Secret Service protection, and preventing him from having a presidential Library.”
Other findings, per the memo:
- 65% of all voters agree that by continuing to attack the President, [President-elect] Joe Biden and [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi are making this worse and keeping the country divided. Only 35% disagree.
- 48% of all voters are less likely to vote for a member of Congress who votes to impeach the president. Only 36% are more likely.
- 80% of Trump voters and 76% of Republicans are less likely to vote for a member of Congress who votes for impeachment.
Beyond what Democrats do in Congress on impeachment, it certainly seems as if Trump is gearing up to run again in 2024.
Peter Navarro, a former top White House adviser, predicted that Trump will be elected in “a landslide” during the next presidential election.
During an interview over the weekend on Fox News, Navarro — who advised Trump on trade and manufacturing — also slammed President Joe Biden for signing over two dozen executive orders on his first week in office.
“Here’s the thing with these executive orders. It’s politics as usual,” Navarro said. “When Donald Trump gets elected in a landslide in 2024 he’s going to roll out the same kind of executive orders to roll things back.”
During Trump’s final speech on January 20th at Joint Base Andrews, he told his supporters: “We love you. We will be back in some form.”
Trump also met with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in Florida last week to discuss their next steps.
“The meeting between President Donald J. Trump and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, was a very good and cordial one,” a summary of the meeting said.
“They discussed many topics, number one of which was taking back the House in 2022. President Trump’s popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time,” it added.
“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House. They worked very well together in the last election and picked up at least 15 seats when most predicted it would be the opposite. They will do so again, and the work has already started,” it said.
