It seems like every day we hear about the decline in President Trump’s popularity. Yet, his endorsements have been pure gold, he wins every poll and straw poll by large numbers. Wherever he goes, he draws huge crowds. Waning popularity? I Don’t Think so. But, what about the 11 Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump? Surely, they are doing well in their reelection bids. Not really. Seven in the House are gone or will be gone soon.
One thing is undeniable. The Democrats panic over the possibility of Trump running again and winning. They have absolutely no one who can counter him. Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are damaged goods. The best they can come up with is Gavin Newsom, the far-left governor of California. There is talk about AOC running and she would do well in the traditionally blue states, but she has no appeal in the swing states.
The J6 committee exists for one reason and one reason alone. To damage Trump. But, once Republicans retake the House, committees will convene hearings about Joe and Hunter Biden. They will admit a Harvard study of January 6th that found that it has proven the narrative that the Capitol riot was an “insurrection” to be completely false.
In less than two weeks, Liz Cheney will be defeated in the August 116th primary. That will bring the number of impeachment voters down to 3. Those three are Reps. David Valadao (R-Calif.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), and Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.). You will notice that those three are from ultra-liberal states. Meanwhile, the man who would be king, Mike Pence, – has endorsed nearly every opponent of people endorsed by Trump. His record is abysmal.
In the U.S. Senate, Mitt Romney is the only Republican who supported Trump’s impeachment. He is up for reelection in 2024, and is widely expected to face a number of primary challengers, should he even run for reelection.
Four Republicans saw the writing on the wall and simply retired rather than go through a primary: Reps. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), John Katko (R-N.Y.), and, of course, Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), who is one of the two Republicans who was handpicked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to sit on the notoriously biased January 6 Committee. Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) lost his primary in June, and Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.) lost his primary this week to Trump-endorsed John Gibbs.
I’d love to have the same waning popularity that my president has. Despite the events of November 3rd, Donald Trump is still my president. He can heal an ailing country and drive liberals insane at the same time.
