Presidential historian predicts public support for Trump will collapse

Mod: Remember, the impeachment fun has only just begun. Once events have fully taken their course the public's desire to impeach this popular vote loser of a president will be clear.

Presidential historian predicts public support for Trump will collapse (The Hill link): Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley on Friday predicted that public support for President Trump will collapse as House Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry against him.

“It just tells you what deep trouble Donald Trump is in. I mean, when you have 50 percent of the country wanting you not just impeached but removed from office, and the game hasn’t even gotten fast yet,” Brinkley said Friday morning on CNN, where he serves as a contributor.

“I think 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,” Brinkley predicted.

He added of Trump, “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.”

Brinkley noted the successful campaigns of politicians from opposing parties that came after previous presidents faced political fallout. "I think the Democrats might want to look at the way Jimmy Carter pulled off victory in 1976. He took the high road. He ran on saying, I will never tell a lie to you," Brinkley said. "He didn't have to say Nixon's lies or Lyndon Johnson's lies, just that I am clean, good governance coming your way if you vote for me."

A CNN poll conducted after the first week of public hearings in the inquiry found that 50 percent of Americans said Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 43 percent said he should not be — the same margin from a poll conducted in October.

‘Everything Trump Touches Dies’: Alabama Crimson Tide ridiculed for being ‘cursed’ by the president after another loss (Raw Story link): The Alabama Crimson Tide lost to the Iron Bowl Auburn Tigers on Saturday. The loss came three weeks after Alabama fans cheered President Donald Trump — and lost their first home game in four years to Lousiana State University.

Trump was blamed for jinxing the Crimson Tide after the loss to LSU — and was once again ridiculed after Alabama’s second loss. One popular joke was that “Everything Trump Touches Dies” — often abbreviated as #ETTD online — which came from the title of a best-selling book by conservative political strategist Rick Wilson.

  1. CNN Really? Everyone in America is aware of the polls that place President Trump above President Lincoln in popularity.

    1. Yes, 53% of Republicans rate Trump over Lincoln. And why not? Lincoln freed the slaves while Trump put kids in cages.

    2. To vote for Donald means to put yourself below him, and is that even physically possible?

    3. So you celebrate the fact that 53% of the dumbest kids in class have grown up and remained dumb enough to rate Trump higher than Lincoln?

    4. Is it really surprising that fascists prefer Trump over Lincoln? Wasn’t that kind of the whole point of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville? They are racists. Of course they prefer Trump over the guy who issued the Emancipation Proclamation.

  4. What a colossal waste of taxpayers money the Democrats have spent with their Trump Derangement Syndrome.
    As President Trump fulfills his campaign promises the Left is becoming more desperate.
    The days of money laundering and lobbyists shaking down political parties from inside and outside this country are coming to an end.
    Hillary and Bill Clinton left the White House broke; Hillary even took the silverware and curtains.
    But within being "elected" as Secretary of State she amassed millions in foreign contributions made to her Foundation or better known as the Clinton Family personal piggybank; which all monies now have ceased to trickle in. No more pay to play since she lost her bid to become President of the U.S.

  5. What Is ‘Failson’ Culture? Look No Further Than the Family Trump for the Answer

    A “failson” is a son of wealth and privilege who is equal parts incompetence, stupidity, and arrogance. Donald and Eric come to mind?

  6. What we have here is a failure to communicate, seeing that the civil war ended a few hundred years ago. The less informed have not got the word. Instead they think (that is a hard one to see) the war never ended and they will rise up again in the for of a big fat ball communist dude (djt). You all need to get some education and stop eating those opioid laced cereals in the morning etc. A warning look at (djt) and see what drugs can do to a person.

  7. ‘RUSSIAN’ REPUBLICANS ENDORSE PUTIN’S (AND THUS TRUMP’S) VISION FOR AMERICA

    It’s this simple: Republicans who endorse Donald J. Trump’s actions as the current Oval Office occupant support Russia’s takeover of the United States.

    When they sing along with congressional Republicans that the impeachment inquiry is a “witch hunt,” just another attempt to oust the criminally inclined, wannbe dictator of our country, they are supporting Russia and Vladimir Putin’s main foreign policy objective, namely a bloodless takeover of the United States.

    1. Is 8:31 suggesting Trump will be throw out of office in late-2023 or is he numerically challenged?

      Regardless, another 4 years of impeachment investigations and hearings exposing not only Trump's crimes but also the complicity of Moscow Mitch Putin's Other Bitch and Leningrad Lindsay would be fine. Time to purge the criminals.

  12. How soon before Sierra Madre city council announces that a parcel tax is necessary in order to keep the existing library?
    Plans for rebuilding and increased technological upgrades were never tabled even after city wide polling on new taxes for this was easily defeated.
    Now that Sierra Madre City will collect two hundred thousand in new taxes from this last election with keeping business tax local, will a parcel tax now be considered ?

  13. Tighten up your belts and hide your livestock along with women and children, 2020 will be another wild TAX season to be pelting the populations of California cities. Those who claim to be in-charge long ago, will kick the can down the road and extract more monies in the for of levies, fees, surcharges and taxes upon the already over burdened souls of each city. Tax man a coming to fill the purses of each city council person to do what they wish to do, salaries of their own will be first. Poor people along with men, women & children will eat last. As (djt) has decreed.

  17. Be a patriot, not a Trumper and help save the country and the world. Remember you were taught values, morals and ethics. 45 doesn’t have any.

    If you want a safe, viable, livable planet, if you want your descendants to know that ethics, morals, values count.... If you want clean air & earth, food for all, decent living conditions, a reversal of our climate emergency....DO NOT support 45 . Support and vote for any and all candidates who believe in these ethics and morals, who are not liars, crooks, thieves, sexual predators.
