Democrats are finding themselves in a whole heap of trouble.
The left’s best laid plans for victory next year are imploding before their very eyes.
And the bad news Democrats feared the most just arrived.
Impeachment is turning into a political anchor that threatens to sink Democrats up and down the ballot in 2020.
New Jersey Democrat Congress Jeff Van Drew – who was one of 31 Democrats running for re-election in districts President Trump carried in 2016 – realized he could not win a red seat as a member of a party supporting impeachment so Van Drew joined the Republican Party.
The political environment is just as dire for the remaining 30 Democrats representing Trump districts.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale released the results of the campaign’s internal polling which found that voters in these 30 districts oppose impeachment by a 53 percent to 43 percent margin.
To make matters worse for the Democrats, voters in these 30 Trump districts favor electing a new representative 47 percent to 36 percent.
“These Democrats already knew they were in trouble before the sham impeachment, but now they are in serious jeopardy,” Parscale crowed in a press release announcing the poll results. “By moving forward with her political theater of impeachment, [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi has accomplished two things: she has energized the president’s supporters and walked her entire majority caucus off the plank.”
Democrats already got a firsthand look at how toxic impeachment was for members of their caucus running for re-election in districts Donald Trump carried.
New Jersey Congressman Jeff Van Drew – who is running in a district Trump won by five points in 2016 – announced he was leaving the Democrat Party over impeachment and joining the Republicans.
But down ballot Democrats weren’t the only ones paying the price for impeachment.
A brand new Suffolk University/USA Today poll showed Donald Trump leading every major Democrat Party Presidential contender in a hypothetical head to head matchup.
The Suffolk University/USA Today poll showed:
Trump 44 (+3)
Trump 44 (+5)
Trump 45 (+8)
Trump 43 (+9)
Trump 43 (+10)
This is a sharp reversal from previous polls that found Democrats leading President Trump.
While it is true that Donald Trump is running with a booming economy and no new foreign wars as the backdrop for his re-election, the main driver of the President and Republican Party’s improved political standing is the Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ impeachment blunder.
Democrats now have no choice but to see this impeachment fiasco through to the bitter end.
As the impeachment sham marches towards its inevitable conclusion of the Senate exonerating the President, Democrats’ political standing will continue to deteriorate.
If Democrats lose at every level in 2020, it may be the only way to prevent partisan impeachments of future Presidents.
