Would you think people, I mean Democrats, would be noticing a pattern here? As this push their impeachment along, Trump's approval rating slowly inches up, why? How is it that as Dems press their case further, they fail to have any negative impact on Trump's approval rating? 
 

Quinnipiac's polling has a leftward lean generally, so 43% may not seem impressive. But that 43% is the highest ever rating in the Q-Poll and in this sample D-R=5% 

 

Oh, BTW, 51% in this sample think Trump should NOT be impeached, vs 45% who think he should.

 

See a correlation there, no impeachment at +6% and Trump at his all-time high in Q-Poll? 
 

December 16, 2019 - Trump Job Approval And Economy Rating Hit Highs, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds

 

Within days of a historic impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump matches his best job approval rating ever, as 43 percent of registered voters say they approve of the job he is doing, while 52 percent disapprove, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll released today. 

Prior to the start of the impeachment hearings, in an October 23 poll, 38 percent approved of the president's job performance, while 58 percent disapproved. In last week's December 10 poll, 41 percent approved of the president's job performance, while 55 percent disapproved. 

In today's poll, Republicans approve of the president's job performance 92 - 5 percent, tying his highest approval among Republicans, while Democrats disapprove 94 - 4 percent. Independents disapprove 50 - 42 percent, but this is the best approval number Trump has received among this group since his inauguration. Men are divided as 50 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove. Women disapprove 57 - 38 percent, but it is the president's best approval number among women thus far. 

The Economy 

Registered voters are feeling more positive about the economy than at any time in the last 18 years, as nearly three quarters, 73 percent, describe the economy as either excellent or good, while only a quarter, 25 percent, say not so good or poor. The 73 percent of voters who say that the economy is excellent or good breaks down into 26 percent who say it is excellent, which is a new high, and 47 percent who say it is good. Breaking down the negative side, 19 percent of voters say the economy is not so good, while only 6 percent say poor. 

"A 50-year low unemployment rate coupled with stocks hitting record highs are adding up to a rosy view of the economy and voters feeling optimistic about their own personal finances. That view of a strong economy seems to be helping President Trump match his highest job approval rating since being elected, despite facing becoming the third president in U.S. history to be impeached this week," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow. 

Among those who say the economy is either excellent or good, 56 percent approve of the job President Trump is doing, while 40 percent disapprove. Among those who describe the economy as not so good or poor, 86 percent disapprove of the president's job performance, while 8 percent approve. 

A plurality of registered voters, 45 percent, say the nation's economy will be better next year, while 31 percent say worse. An overwhelming majority, 79 percent, say they are optimistic about their own financial future, while only 18 percent are pessimistic.

 

Impeachment 

Opinion on impeachment is unchanged from a week ago. In today's poll, 45 percent say President Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 51 percent don't think so. However, opposition to impeachment has increased since the hearings began. Prior to the start of impeachment hearings, in an October 23 poll, support for impeachment was 48 - 46 percent. 

Today, Republicans say President Trump should not be impeached from office 95 - 5 percent, independents say the president should not be impeached and removed from office 58 - 36 percent, while Democrats say President Trump should be impeached and removed from office 86 - 11 percent. 

Nearly 9 out of 10 voters who have an opinion, 87 percent, say their mind is made up about impeachment, while 12 percent say they might change their mind.

The Dims are so upside down on this impeachment that Nancy is going to ram it through as quickly a possible, maybe this Wednesday, before they sink any lower in the polls.

 

Minimal discussion probably some speeches and then just ram it.  Behind the scenes there have been grumbling by the moderate Dims stating if so much as mention they want to discuss the impeachment they being attacked by their own party. The Dims are eating their own.

 

Don't be surprised if there are more Dim defections to the Republicans in the near future.

 

The Dims did not allow the Republicans to call a single witness in their hearings and many of their questions where blocked and now Chucky is demanding that the Senate allow him to call any witnesses he wants. 

 

Yeah, like that is going to happen.

 

Lies and ramming it through. I guess the Dims forgot all about the thoughtful and solemn process they promised.

 

You can't believe a word they say.

Who are the 25% saying the economy is poor?

 

Seriously....I'd like to meet a few of them.  Would be interesting I think.

The ones that want you to pay their freight for them. They don't care if they tax us into another recession.

The latest twist is that they will go ahead and vote to impeach, but withhold forwarding their charges to the Senate.

 

In this fashion they can avoid any kind of trial in the Senate. This after they told us that the crimes were just so horrendous that they needed to fulfill their constitutional duties to save the nation. I think it reveals their understanding of the process is not as flawed as we suspected. That they too recognize this is a simple witch hunt.

 

It will be interesting to see how the opinions of the people will be affected by such a move. Perhaps they read these polls as yes we want him impeached, but no we don’t want him removed. I suspect that this solution is a huge loser for them. This will allow the president to claim that while they charged him with crimes, they denied him a fair trial. I just don’t think that the accusation of a political smear will reflect well on them. Trump would sing a little song about the unjust nature of the entire matter. It would also demonstrate that the Democrats lack the courage to fulfill their constitutional duties.

 

Even the left leaning slanted polls are showing unpopularity. Wonder what the insider professional polls are telling them.

Boy oh boy did they miscalculate on this one. Nancy should have stood her ground. 

She let them bully her and it's going to cost the party everything they have. 

What a bumbling idiot she's become...

What’s the matter ?

 

You don’t want to help us celebrate the Great Exoneration Part 2 ?

 

Four years of steady anti Trump media news broadcasts..... and still the needle is moving in the wrong direction. Soon the Democrats will have to declare victory and transition over to obstructing justice as the real criminal complaints begin to trickle down. Jump ship now and save yourself the agony of it all.

 

Trump beat The Swamp again.

In that case the Senate should form an Investigative Committee of its own to inquire into the basis of the Ukrainian affair, including Biden and his son Hunter.

 

It should be a Senate version of the House Un-American Activities Committee, but with a wider investigative charter, i.e. HUAC was formed to investigate <quote> The HUAC was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties. <end quote>

 

The SUACs charter would then read: Investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and corporate entities.

There would be nothing preventing a Senate investigation of anything they want. They could conduct an investigation into the crimes the HOR alleged. They could examine and subpoena (legally) witnesses and compel testimony. Joe could refuse to testify under his rights, but how is that going to look ?

i sit on the board of an agency in New Bedford Mass, and we actually had a meeting last night. much of the adult and youth funding is federal and based off the unemployment rate. people are going nuts because the assumed funding levels are going to be unprecedentedly low. some places wont even have the money to keep their one-stop career (old unemployment office) up and running, never mind the peripheral programming that supports it.

"unprecedented in modern times" was the state rep's statement.
