Nancy Pelosi is destroying the Democratic Party with her crazy impeachment.
A public break in the party is about to cause a massive schism.
One top Democrat is bailing after Nancy Pelosi’s insanity went too far.
Impeachment is turning into a disaster for the Democrats.
Impeachment has dropped double digits in popularity among Democrats, and among Republicans, it’s even worse.
Many voters were willing to give Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi a chance to make their case against Trump and now they’ve made it and it looks weak.
This is terrible for the Democratic members of Congress that live in districts that voted for Trump.
They are facing the choice of angering their constituents who voted for Trump or angering the big donors in the Democratic Party.
Faced with that choice, many are buckling under pressure from the Democratic Party.
However, one Congressman has decided to make a different choice.
Rep. Jeff Van Drew is anticipated to change sides and join the Republicans next week.
According to The Washington Examiner:
The Democratic Party has never liked Rep. Jeff Van Drew, the conservative New Jersey congressman expected to break with his party and join the GOP this week.
His opposition to impeachment has tanked Democratic support in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District — a red-leaning district the Democrats had been trying to win for years. And throughout his time in the state legislature, Van Drew supported Republican policies more often than Democratic legislation: He voted against gay marriage, a higher minimum wage, and several gun control initiatives.
Van Drew had made one too many appearances on Fox News and had been too willing to call impeachment what it is: a divisive, purely partisan process that amounts to nothing more than a campaign promise. New Jersey Democrats could have lived with this had his new national platform remained national. Instead, it began to affect local politics. A polling memo commissioned by Van Drew’s campaign found that only 24% of likely Democratic voters in his district wanted him reelected, while 58% said they’d support a different candidate.
It’s no wonder, then, that Van Drew is considering tossing his party affiliation and switching to the GOP. It’s unlikely the state party would have renominated him given his waning support, and as a Republican running with President Trump’s endorsement, Van Drew will secure the GOP nomination and stand a better chance at reelection.
Democrats have gone so far in on impeachment that there isn’t any room in their party for people who don’t support their underhanded attacks on Trump.
This isn’t going to win back the voters that they lost in 2016.
Nancy Pelosi needs to think fast if she’s going to find any way to save impeachment from crushing Donald Trump in 2020.
Do you think Rep. Jeff Van Drew switching sides shows what a disaster impeachment is for the Democrats?
