Cillizza, one of CNN’s blind squirrels, finds an impeachment acorn (which he could have read here weeks ago)

Seriously, this guy gets paid some sort of money for coming out with such “insights”. Why can’t he just come to the SOL PG for his ideas? He would have been reading that this was happening weeks ago.

 

His conclusion:

 

But what the trend line in recent weeks suggests is that the intense focus on impeachment has marginally helped, not hurt Trump. The change in public opinion is slight, yes. And it may well be temporary. But for the moment, it's the sort of thing that has to make Democrats a little (and maybe more than a little) nervous about the path they have chosen...And the early returns -- emphasis on the word "early" -- have to make Democrats worried.

 

Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor at Large: 

Warning lights are flashing for Democrats as they impeach Trump

(CNN) — The House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress -- both tied to his actions around a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky.

But there's growing evidence that the public impeachment proceedings may actually be helping Trump politically. 

Take a new Gallup poll released Wednesday morning, before the House vote, which shows two things happening since House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, opened up a formal impeachment inquiry in October regarding Trump's conduct with Zelensky:

 

1) Trump's job approval rating has gone from 39% to 45%

 

2) Support for Trump's impeachment and removal has dipped from 52% to 46%.

 

Those results largely affirm other data out over the past week or so that suggest support for impeachment has dipped. In a CNN national poll released earlier this week, 45% said they supported the impeachment and removal of the President -- down from 50% who said the same in a mid-November CNN survey. That same poll showed opposition to impeachment/removal at 46%, up 4 points from mid-November. And a CNN "poll of polls" -- an average of all six most recent quality/credible national polling conducted between December 4 and December 15 -- showed 46% favored impeachment and removal as compared to 49% who did not....

 

But what the trend line in recent weeks suggests is that the intense focus on impeachment has marginally helped, not hurt Trump. The change in public opinion is slight, yes. And it may well be temporary. But for the moment, it's the sort of thing that has to make Democrats a little (and maybe more than a little) nervous about the path they have chosen....

 

But simply because Pelosi acquiesced to that inexorable momentum does not mean that her concerns about the politics of impeachment had changed. What Pelosi knew then -- and knows now -- is that impeachment is a chaos-creator in the American electorate. There is simply no certainty about how the voters -- particularly the small number of independent and/or undecided voters -- will react to all of this.

 

And the early returns -- emphasis on the word "early" -- have to make Democrats worried.

Act? You think it is an act? 

 

If I want to be charitable, I will call it an ideological blindness.

In “See” they use knotted string and ropes as “written” record. 

 

But aren’t Frank’s feelings actually his truth as well?

How come you never discuss the facts contained in an OP instead of introducing your non-sequitur distractions meant to derail? 

 

I talk about you because you are creepy. Just like most others on SOL

It's what happens when you stand on the pedestal of stupid so frequently.
