An internal poll conducted by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and Team McCarthy, in key 2020 congressional swing districts shows that a majority of voters believe the Ukrainian call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky does not raise to an impeachable offense.
The poll taken between October 1st to the 3rd, 2019, asked a total of 800 registered voters by phone, within targeted congressional distracts if the President had committed any egregious impeachable act, regarding his phone conversation with the Ukrainian President?
The survey also focused on the 40 Republican held House seats that the party intends to defend along with the 55 Democratic seats that the GOP is hoping to flip in 2020.
The contrived impeachment inquiry may also spell trouble for Democrats within those Republican districts they flipped in 2018, as better the 62% of those polled within those distracts now believe the innocuous conversation between the two leaders was “appropriate,” while just 33% considered it impeachable.’
Furthermore, Republican candidates in Trump districts represented by Democrats hold a “double-digit advantage” over impeachment-supporting Democrats.
Respondents were asked:
“Thinking just about this specific case of the President’s phone call with the Ukraine President, do you believe that what President Trump did was appropriate, the same as other Presidents have probably done, inappropriate, but not impeachable, or an impeachable offense”?
A majority of responders (59%) do not believe the Presidents conversation with President Volodymyr Zelensky constitutes an impeachable offense, while 37% believe it is.
While opinions on impeachment are largely as expected divided on party lines, the key to recapturing the House and the White House lies with independent voters. Within that all important voting block the President emerges triumphant with almost 60% saying they do not believe the Presidents actions were impeachable.
Respondents were also asked:
“Thinking ahead to the next election, would you be more willing to vote for: A Democratic candidate for Congress who believes that President Trump should be impeached and removed from office…or… A Republican candidate for Congress who believes that President Trump’s actions do not rise to an impeachable offense and those voters should be allowed to decide for themselves in next year’s elections.”
Once again a majority (54%) of voters within those Democratic flipped districts said they would most likely vote back Republicans in 2020, Only 38% would re-elect a Democrat, giving Republicans a wide lead of 16-points going into 2020.
The survey found another important key factor in that almost 60% of registered voters within those districts complain that Democrats have done nothing legislatively, since capturing the House, and 62% believe that the reason for that is their preoccupation with investigations and impeachments distracting them from what they were sent to congress for, create legislation on behalf of the American people.
Democrats are so focused with their impeachment craze; they’ve ignored important bipartisan legislation that is currently languishing in the House.
Ironically in August Speaker Pelosi still had control of the House stating “The public isn’t there on impeachment. It’s your voice and constituency, but give me the leverage I need to make sure that we’re ready and it is as strong as it can be.”
Pelosi in a rare impetuous moment and against her own political instincts publicly called for an impeachment inquiry before any of the facts were made public. However less then 24-hours President Trump declassified the core of the impeachment inquiry. The unedited phone transcript between himself and Ukrainian President Zelensky, which showed unequivocally there was no quid pro quo.
