Here at Independent Voter Site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve made no secret of the fact that I feel neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump deserved impeachment. The Democrats’ Kafkaesque distortion of all previous impeachment procedures is alienating Independent Voters, as is their ridiculous reliance on nothing but HEARSAY against de facto Third Party President Donald Trump.
Even though the Democrats’ many media outlets shrilly insist President Trump is doomed (just like they told us during their absurd Russian Collusion fantasy and the Mueller Investigation) the latest Emerson Poll as well as polling information exclusive to the Democrats at Politico and at Vanity Fair show that the all-important Independent Voters (like yours truly) see through the Democrats’ fascist abuses and plan to vote for Trump again anyway.
The Vanity Fair article was even headlined “‘It Is Hard to Read This as Anything but a Warning’: New Polling Suggests Democrats’ Impeachment Push Could Alienate Key Voters.”
The article (link below) read in part “Data exclusive to Vanity Fair shows impeachment could be a losing issue for Democrats hoping to recruit Independents in 2020. ‘Lots of people who don’t like Trump who are still prepared to vote for him,’ says one political science expert” and “Independents are also one of the keys, if not the key, to the 2020 elections.”
Two factors cited by the article: “The first is that, in their view, impeachment distracts from issues they care about. The second factor is the view among Independents that impeachment reflects the agenda of the political establishment and the media.” Also, per Ken Stern, that it’s “a continuation of the partisan bickering and media excess that began even before his inauguration.”
And let’s remember four crucial FACTS:
- We have the Ukrainian call transcript, there’s no discussion of linking aid to any investigation. UNLIKE WHEN JOE BIDEN BRAGGED ABOUT USING THE THREAT OF WITHHOLDING AID TO GET A UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR FIRED FOR INVESTIGATING HIS SON’S INFLUENCE-PEDDLING.
- The two principals on the call, President Trump and President Zelensky, have both stated there was no linkage of any aid to Ukraine dependent on any investigation. NO MATTER WHAT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HOLDOVERS CLAIM THEY HEARD OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CALL.
- The Ukraine government had no idea that aid was being held back pending confirmation of the stable intent -no corruption- within the new Ukrainian administration.
- President Zelensky didn’t announce, didn’t start, and didn’t acknowledge he was going to start any investigation to get the aid released; and it was released without contingencies.
