According to a new Fox News poll, opinions are changing quickly when it comes to the Russia investigation, the special counsel, and the impeachment of Donald Trump. Most of the numbers look particularly good for the president, and not so good for Democrats who have apparently decided they are going to spend another year and a half dragging America through their inane conspiracy theories.
The poll found that 46% of voters approve of the way Special Counsel Robert Mueller handled the Russia investigation while only 32% disapprove. What’s striking about these numbers is that there has been a shift on both sides of the aisle. Approval of the investigation among Republicans has hit an all-time high of 38% while the 55% of Democrats who approve of the Mueller investigation is down considerably from March. Many of the president’s supporters suspected that Mueller would find any reasons whatsoever to throw Trump under the bus, and well, most Democrats were hoping for the same thing. He surprised us.
Not that it makes the investigation any less unnecessary or partisan. He should have never been appointed in the first place.
Moving on. Here’s the number that is going to freak Obama administration officials right out of their minds. According to the poll, 58% of voters “think it is at least somewhat likely the FBI broke the law when it first started investigating the Trump campaign: 24 percent say ‘extremely’ likely, 14 percent ‘very’ likely and 20 percent ‘somewhat’ likely. Republicans (77 percent) are 35 points more likely than Democrats (42 percent) to believe there is at least a chance illegal activity happened.”
Look at that last number: 42 percent of Democrats think there’s a pretty good chance that the FBI broke the law. You think Mr. Comey is sweating?
“Voters oppose impeaching Trump and removing him from office: 42 percent yes, 50 percent no. Seven in 10 Democrats want him impeached compared to 1 in 10 Republicans. Those numbers haven’t moved since January,” reports Fox News.
Which goes to show you that Democrats just want Trump out of office by any means necessary. It doesn’t matter to them whether or not he actually did anything wrong. When you think about it, that’s actually a little bit frightening. Seventy percent of Democrat Party voters want Trump impeached…just because.
Thankfully, they’re unlikely to get their wish. Nancy Pelosi knows impeachment is a one-way ticket to a second Trump term, and she’s not going to be known as the woman who gave away the 2020 election. Well, not on purpose anyway. The angry #Resistance is just going to have to deal with it.
