Congress Approves Trump Impeachment Inquiry With Majority Of Democrats Voting To Proceed
Below is the way Congress Approves Trump Impeachment Inquiry and how members voted:
- 29 of the 31 Democratic Congressman, where they hold districts President Trump won in 2016, proceeded with furthering the impeachment inquiry
- This was a dangerous move for these members of Congress in the 2020 election and their electability
- This is because President Donald Trump is very popular in these districts
- Two Democratic Congressman, Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey voted against proceeding with the impeachment inquiry
- Three Republican Congressman who represents districts where Hillary Clinton won in 2016 voted against impeachment proceedings
Political Suicide By Democrats
Many political analysts were puzzled about how over two dozen Democrats decided to move forward with impeachment proceedings with disregard to their political electability in 2020.
- The vote was 232 by 196. Democratic Congressman Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey refrained from voting with the majority of Democrats to proceed with the impeachment inquiry
- There was no Republican Congressmen backing it
Michigan Independent Congressman Justin Amash supported it and voted with the Democrats.
What Experts Say About Today’s Vote
Michael Gracz, The National Sales Manager at Gustan Cho Associates said the following:
More House Democrats announced support for an impeachment inquiry in the past two months as concerns grew that Trump abused his power to affect the 2020 election, but they had to make a political decision. Trump carried 31 districts in 2016 now represented by Democrats, according to election forecaster Sabato’s Crystal Ball, and most of those lawmakers won their seats for the first time last year. In some cases, Trump won the Democratic-held districts overwhelmingly.
2020 Election One Year Away And Democrats Need Ammunition
Time is flying. There is only one year away from the 2020 Presidential Election. Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and other Democrats are running out of options in trying to unseat President Trump. They tried everything and it failed. Russian Collusion? Obstruction of Justice? Now the Ukrainian meeting. It will be next to impossible to unseat a successful President who is taking credit for great economic numbers and a powerful thriving economy.
Here is what Massimo Ressa, the CEO of Gustan Cho Associates says:
Twenty-nine of those 31 Democrats voted Thursday for the resolution setting up the impeachment probe strategy. Of all House districts held by Democrats, Peterson’s 7th District in Minnesota gave Trump the most support: The president carried the area by about 30 percentage points. Peterson first won election to the seat in 1990.Trump won Van Drew’s 2nd District in New Jersey by fewer than 5 percentage points. The Democrat is serving his first term in the House. Others Democrats whose districts were more pro-Trump than Van Drew’s, such as Reps. Anthony Brindisi of New York, Joe Cunningham of South Carolina, Kendra Horn of Oklahoma and Jared Golden of Maine, voted for the House resolution. On the other side, Republicans held firm against the resolution despite political risks faced by a handful of members. Democrat Hillary Clinton won three districts in 2016 that Republicans hold. All three of those GOP lawmakers, Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Will Hurd of Texas and John Katko of New York, voted against the measure. Both Hurd and Katko’s seats are top targets for Democrats in the 2020 election. Hurd will retire at the end of this term. There is no guarantee impeachment will swing close races one way or the other. Support for the House’s inquiry has climbed above 50% nationwide, according to a FiveThirtyEight average. But both impeaching Trump and removing him from the office gets less support in public opinion surveys, particularly in some electoral swing states.
The economy is booming under the Trump Administration. Democrats are running out of time in gaining an edge to win the 2020 Presidential Election. This is a developing story on Gustan Cho Associates Mortgage News. We will update our viewers on more developments.
