‘He doesn’t have a lot of friends’: Why latest impeachment poll shows ‘fake president’ Trump is in ‘deep trouble’

Mod: How can you claim to be winning your reelection campaign when the polls are showing half the voters want you impeached?

‘He doesn’t have a lot of friends’: Presidential historian explains why latest impeachment poll shows ‘fake president’ Trump is in ‘deep trouble’ (Raw Story link): The Ukraine scandal has turned many former impeachment skeptics, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, into impeachment proponents. And polling by CNN shows how much support for impeachment has increased with the general public: while only 36% of Americans wanted President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office in March, that number increased to 50% in October and late November. According to presidential historian Douglas Brinkley (who teaches at Rice University), that 50% is terrible for a president who is seeking reelection.

During a November 29 appearance on CNN, Brinkley explained, “Once the vote is taken by Congress to impeach him and he’s wearing the ‘i’ on his chest, you’re going to see that movement grow even more. It tells you he doesn’t have a lot of friends. He’s a base politician. He doesn’t know how to turn this around.”

By “base politician,” Brinkley means that Trump is someone whose support is mainly coming from his hardcore base. Trump is still quite popular among his base, and that CNN poll showed that only 10% of Republicans want him impeached and removed from office.

When President Bill Clinton faced impeachment in the late 1990s, those who wanted him impeached and removed from office — according to Pew Research Center — never passed 35%. And Clinton had a 73% approval rating when the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach him.

Comparing Clinton and Trump, Brinkley commented, “The charges of corruption (against Trump) are just deep and real. Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades always seemed a tad bit frivolous, and the Starr Report seemed overdone with sexual detail. Clinton kind of became a hero of his own impeachment.”

Trump has often been described as the most corrupt U.S. president since Richard Nixon. But Brinkley goes a step further, saying Trump is the most corrupt since Republican Warren G. Harding — who was elected in 1920 and died in 1923.

Trump is heading right into a 2020 election,” Brinkley told CNN, “and the Democrats are going to pound on him being kind of a fake president — somebody who’s subpar in his behavior and has been running the most corrupt administration since Warren Harding.”

    2. Trump is there to create discord and chaos. Unfortunately for him he is not regarded seriously enough to reach that goal. Rather he is being treated like a crazy uncle.

    You really need to watch this video of a recent conversation between Ray Dalio and Paul Tudor Jones. Their part is about the first 40 minutes. In this video, Ray highlights some problematic similarities between our times and the 1930s. Both feature:

    a large wealth gap
    the absence of effective monetary policy
    a change in the world order, in this case the rise of China and the potential for trade wars/technology wars/capital wars.

  7. Heads now the Left has copied President Trump. "Fake Media" is now being used to describe our President "fake".
    The Lefts fake polls and the Left using the Presidents own words only goes to show the rest of us how Trump Derangement Syndrome has finally run its course.
    Hilarious that CNN was the news outlet that ran with this opinion piece.

  11. Yes, GET OVER IT Adam Schiff, just get over it.
    No one believes you not even the Russian Armenian Mafia that got you elected in Burbank/ Glendale Ca.
    Adam Schiff wanted to be a Hollywood star but his big eye pencil necked looks kept him off screen along with his mental health wacked out beyond what his meds can handle.
    Cry, cry cry, your colleagues don't believe you and your Speaker Nancy told you her trip to Paris plane was full and that you were not invited; YOU Adam Schiff are the big bag of hot air not the climate she told him.

  13. Be Aware: unsolicited evening phone calls asking for donations to help low-income women with breast cancer .....
    " Breast Cancer Health Council" is really a PAC for the Republican party. Links going to this specific name
    show over $1,850,000 gathered this year. This SCAM - not associated with any national Cancer charity or local groups. The caller is vague or evasive if you start asking for details or information. Probably money for Trump.
    such as City of Hope, etc.

  14. Once a fake always a fake, right private "Bone-spur". A toxic waste clean up crew has to follow (djt) around constantly, any room or object he touches has to be destroyed or cleaned on the communicable disease level. The chants are increasing "bald fat pig" it's time for you go home and get out of Europe!

  15. The end of the road for Duncan Hunter of California(republican crook). Both he and his wife stole campaign money to spend on personal for themselves gifts and mistresses alike. Now the sentencing comes with the crimes for both of them, of course a Democrat will be elected into the spot Duncan Hunter will vacate ASAP.
