Pollster Pat Caddell: Obvious Dems Will Try to Impeach Trump if They Take House
Breitbart ^ | August 26, 2018 | Trent Baker

Posted on 08/26/2018 8:31:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

During Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell weighed in on the 2018 midterm elections and said it was pretty obvious Democrats would “make an effort to impeach” President Donald Trump if they took the House.

“I’m not sure this is an ordinary midterm, any more than 2016 was an ordinary presidential election. I believe we have yet to see this election engaged,” Caddell told host John Catsimatidis. “And it should be a national election. It will be nationalized. One of the issues is going to be impeachment. I don’t think that anyone in politics doesn’t believe that if the Democrats win the House, they will make an effort to impeach the president.

He added that he has “seen some indications in the public voting” that there are voters who are unhappy with Trump but may not want impeachment due to the fallout.

“Rasmussen had a poll that showed that [voters believe impeachment] would hurt the economy, which is doing quite well in their eyes,” he said.

Caddell went on to say the Democratic Party “seems to have deserted the center” and “is moving ever further to the left.”

Who’s going to try it in the Senate if they don’t take that? Didn’t think so. And on what charges? Didn’t think so.

What high crimes and misdemeanors has he committed during his time in office?

Everyone is talking impeachment, but remember that the House controls the purse strings.

Trump isn’t on the ballot but this midterm is about 99.9% a referendum on Trump. And he knows this full well.

There is no Trump-like candidate running in any election, so the best most people are going to think it “I gotta vote for the Republican because at least he’s not going to wreck the economy by wasting time trying to impeach Trump”.

On the other hand, Trump knows how to win and know he’s a much better candidate than anyone actually running for the Senate or House. So he’s fine making it all about him. He just has to point to the R and tell people to vote for him because “he’s with me”. Even low-information voters vote for what is best for there own prosperity, and that’s what Trump is going to persuade them to do.

When bill Clinton got impeached, I felt one of the reasons he didn't get convicted was peoples 401s were doing so well, the people didn't want a presidential change since it could affect their 401s and senators got cold feet and didn't convict him. - Tom

Nobody beieves impeachment wouldn’t be their first order of business. It would fail and they would be punished by the voters in 2020.

Pat Caddell is a pretty smart guy and still has a lot of sources within the Democratic Party.

For what? It would be purely political, nothing else. Oh, they’ll spin some lie to make it sound not completely like a coup.

Yes, it does. But politicians lack the courage to act on almost anything.

Caddell detests what the Dem party has become and tells it like he sees it.

So we better make sure the Dems won’t take the House.

Be sure to get out and vote for the Republican candidate. There is a lot more at stake, than just any individual representative.

The fate of the nation is in your hands.

vote to MAGA.

Why is it when B.Hussein was POTUS he could investigate anyone he wanted, throw a Youtuber in jail, throw a movie maker in jail, get the IRS to abuse the opposing party, get a Sheriff locked up for enforcing the law, sue a state for enforcing its law but Trump just stands around twiddling his thumbs and with a Republican majority? Anything stopping him from getting Pelosi investigated? Hillary?

“They love the way McCain fights back. It is a gut reaction. McCain has kept more promises in two years than most Presidents keep in two terms.”

If you say so.
