Democrats took back the House in the recent midterms and that wasn’t a huge surprise. Historically, that’s what they are supposed to do. In fact, you can make a solid argument the ‘blue wave’ didn’t really happen. It wasn’t exactly an overwhelmingly good night for Democrats. They lost plenty of races they thought they had in the bag all across the country. Regardless, the election is over and Democrats will have a small majority in the House which means they get to chair all the committees and annoy Trump over the next two years.
Not only are they expected to try and impeach Trump but they are also expected to try and impeach Brett Kavanaugh. It’s nuts. But, they’ve shown they don’t care about being rational and they will do whatever it takes to undo the 2016 election.
Obviously, your average American doesn’t want Kavanaugh impeached and a recent poll just showed exactly that.
From The Daily Caller:
A majority of likely U.S. voters are against impeachment attempts against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, according to a survey released Monday.
Rasmussen Reports conducted the poll on Nov. 7 and found 56 percent of the 1,000 likely U.S. voters surveyed were against attempts to press formal charges against Kavanaugh. Thirty percent supported the move while 14 percent were unsure, according to the poll.
Respondents were asked whether House Democrats should try to impeach Kavanaugh.
The poll comes as Democrats regained the House majority in the 2018 midterm elections and New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler suggested opening an investigation into Kavanaugh. Nadler is in line to becoming the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
Will Democrats listen?
Probably not. They didn’t listen in 2016. They didn’t listen during the Kavanaugh hearing. They didn’t listen during the midterms. Why would they start listening now.
