Democrats just found out some really bad news about impeachment and 2020
Democrats thought impeachment was key to a victory next November.
Either Congress would remove President Trump from office and fracture the Republican Party beyond repair or Democrats would render Donald Trump unelectable through the taint of scandals.
But Democrats got a rude awakening when they found out some really bad news about impeachment and 2020.
Republicans need to flip just 21 seats to win back control of the House of Representatives.
And there are 31 Democrats running for re-election in districts Donald Trump won in 2016.
That means there is more than enough low hanging fruit for Republicans to oust House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from power as the backlash to impeachment builds.
National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer echoed this claim.
National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Tom Emmer (R-MN) said Saturday that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry “is going to cost them their” House “majority” in the 2020 congressional elections.
As many swing district House Democrats go back to their districts and explain to their constituents their support for the impeachment inquiry, Emmer said that the inquiry will result in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) losing her House majority.
“This process they’re embarking on is going to cost them their majority next fall,” Emmer said.
The NRCC chairman said that Democrats have an “obsession” with impeachment, adding that “it’s just getting worse for them.”
Impeachment is turning into a giant dumpster fire for the Democrats.
This crusade united Republicans behind President Trump and polls show it has alienated swing voters in key battleground states.
But Democrats are now locked in to this fight.
The only question now is how badly they will suffer politically when this completely blows up.
