Historian Warns Trump That His Support Will Collapse Once Democrats Formally Impeach Him

Donald Trump has had historically low support since taking office in 2017, but impeachment is likely to send those numbers plummeting into the cellar.

At least that’s what CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said this week, noting that Trump is in a substantially worse position than Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon were when they went through scandals that brought impeachment to the forefront of their presidencies.

“It just tells you what deep trouble Donald Trump is in 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,” the historian said on Friday.

He added, “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.”

The public still supports impeachment

Donald Trump and his Republican loyalists – unable to come up with a substance-based impeachment defense – are trying to invent a new narrative in which they claim public opinion on impeachment is drastically shifting in the president’s favor.

But similar to their earlier impeachment arguments, this one lacks any basis in reality.

In fact, a new CNN poll shows that support for Trump’s impeachment and removal from office has remained stable with 50 percent supporting it. According to FiveThirtyEight, a collection of public surveys shows that support for impeachment has actually ticked up slightly over the past week.

More than half of Republicans might live in a plane of existence in which Donald Trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln, but in reality, the American people know Trump is guilty of wrongdoing and want him booted from office.

Once House Democrats take the formal vote to impeach Trump, which may come around Christmas, Trump’s dwindling support could fall through the floor.
