Donald Trump Is Delivering On His Promises And Voters Are Noticing

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-N.Y.) have told their fellow Democrats to stop talking about impeaching President Trumpbecause they have come to understand the talk is not helping them with independents and is doing nothing to separate the president from his enthusiastic base of support.

Yes, among Democrats, 71 percent want to see the president impeached if Democrats win control of the House. But among independents — the key swing votes Democrats must attract to retake either house of Congress — 54 percent say they oppose impeachment.

But the most ignored figure in that poll is perhaps the most important. Among Republicans, 92 percent oppose impeachment — an indication of the enduring, unflagging support the president has enjoyed from those in his party.

They have stuck with him throughout. In October 2017, when Trump’s job approval rating was at 35 percent, the lowest of his presidency, 82 percent of those who voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election said they would vote for him again.

Neither the Stormy Daniels saga, buoyed by $175 million in free media for her attorney, nor the Russia collusion investigation has done anything to harm Trump’s standing with his supporters, according to a recent USA TODAY Trump voter panel.

Trump’s supporters see him as a man who keeps his promises and disrupts the swamp.
