Worried about fallout, Dems poised to poll-test impeachment
…the first two paragraphs of the article…
Democratic strategists are racing to figure out whether it’s politically wise to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, as one bombshell revelation after another about his ties to Russia is forcing candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives to consider the question far sooner than anyone had expected.
In a significant development, party operatives say they expect Democrats to poll-test the public’s views on impeachment, trying to acquire hard data about an issue that until now has not been seriously analyzed. Other strategists say that candidates and party organizations will begin conducting focus groups on the question.
…and the observation that, if true, it means the sincerity level of Democrats’ demands for impeachment proceedings is contingent on whether or not they can mine votes from it.
Very impressive show of sincerity, of principle, of integrity. Wouldn’t you say?
