Bad Republicans...BAD!


"17 percent of Republicans support Trump impeachment, removal from office"

Seventeen percent of Republican voters support President Trump's impeachment and say he should be removed from office, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll released Monday.

The figure in the Jan. 8-9 survey marks a 3 percentage point increase from a similar poll conducted in late October.

The overall share of voters who support Trump’s impeachment and removal from office was little changed at 48 percent, up 1 point from the October survey.

The share of Democratic voters who favor impeachment stood at 80 percent, down 1 point from October, while independents who backed impeachment ticked up 1 point to 42 percent.

The latest survey comes as the Senate prepares for Trump’s impeachment trial.

After a weeks-long standoff with Republicans on the rules of the upcoming Senate trial, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is expected to send the two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — to the upper chamber later this week.

After the articles are sent, a trial is expected to begin almost immediately. But with 67 votes needed for conviction, Trump is all but guaranteed to be acquitted by the GOP-controlled Senate.

There is still some debate over whether Trump’s trial will include witness testimony. Even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has made it clear that he would prefer no witness, Democrats need just four Republicans to agree to call witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton.

The Hill-HarrisX survey polled 1,002 registered voters nationwide and has a margin or error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The margin of error is 5.4 points among GOP voters, 4.9 points among Democratic voters and 6.3 points among independents.

7. Most people treat Goebbels as a warning, not a course of instruction.

3. A good percentage of Republicans are nice people. ...

They are polite, dislike confrontation and try to treat other people as they would like to be treated. Often these people are Christians who actually believe in their faith and try to live by it.

Trump is confrontational, impolite and often obnoxious. He also has an enormous ego. However Trump is doing far better as president than any other Republican in my lifetime with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan.

In the Old West movies often a group of farmers are being harassed by the big cattle barons so they hire a gun fighter. Well Trump is the gun fighter that 83% of the republican voters hired and support. They hope he will turn things around and get the foot of the establishment off their necks. They realize he is not a really nice guy and far from a saint but so far he is doing the job they hired him for.

4. And he is doing one hell of a job at that, He has numbers Obama said he could not ever get.

But the irrational Trump haters are intentionally blind and stupid to all of Trumps accomplishments and will lie about all of them every time.

5. The big problem is our wonderful liberal media ...

which refuses to acknowledge any successes that Trump has achieved.

The liberal media sold out and is now the official propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. It is simply worthless pond scum covering up the corruption in the Swamp.

8. Democrats....

Tend to be engage in groupthink. They are lazy thinkers...preferring "leaders," to provide what to think.

Republicans often have internal wars because they always have people with differing opinions.

Libertarians believr their own ideas exclusively....that is why they dont get elected.
