The Democrats rushed impeachment is a gift to President Trump. The polls clearly show this debacle has backfired on the Democrats. In swing states, the numbers are even worsening for the left and whoever they pick to take on Trump.
Trump has withstood a flood of negative stories and outright lies and fought a trade war with China that threatened the rust belt which he needs to win in 2020. And came out the winner. Think of that.
He never flinched and made clear to America that he was not doing this for politics but because it was the right thing to do for America.
Contrast that with the total political Dem impeachment and you can see why these five Dem Senators may break ranks and vote to acquit Trump.
Kyrsten Lea Sinema of Arizona, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Doug Jones of Alabama, Gary Peters of Michigan, and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire are the ones to watch.
Sinema and Manchin are not up for reelection but have an independent streak and break ranks and vote with the GOP often.
The other three are in tough re-election campaigns and are terrified of the backlash.
If they break ranks this will prove the Dems played politics with this and it will ruin the Dem nominee in 2020.
Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) said Thursday that a “couple” Senate Democrats might vote to acquit President Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Sen. Perdue declined to say who will vote to acquit the president during an upcoming impeachment trial so that the public does not put additional pressure on the Democrats.
The Georgia conservative said, “I think we might have a couple. I don’t want to speculate on who — obviously that puts too much pressure on them — but I really think we have people on both sides that are trying to get to a reasonable, nonpartisan answer.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) recently echoed Sen. Perdue’s sentiment in which he said that Democrats remain divided on impeachment.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats. It looks to me over in the House, the Republicans seem to be solid and the Democrats seem to be divided,” the Kentucky Republican said.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), a member of Senate Republican leadership, said that “there are a couple of Democrats who are thinking about” voting to acquit the president of wrongdoing.
It remains possible that battleground Senate Democrats, such as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Doug Jones (D-AL), Gary Peters (D-MI), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), may vote to clear President Trump.
Sen. Manchin said recently that he is “very much torn” over making a decision regarding voting to convict President Trump.
Other Senate Republicans have told Breitbart News they believe as many as three Democrats could vote to clear Trump during the trial.
Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said that any lawmaker, whether he or she is from a red or blue state, will see that there is not enough evidence to convict the president.
“I think that anybody that is fair-minded, whether they’re from a red state or a blue state or not, is going to find this somewhat laughable and a bar way too low to undo an election, particularly when we’re so close to the next election,” he told Breitbart News.
