CNN’s Camerota: Democrats Are ‘Expressing Some Cold Feet’ with ‘Notable’ Decline in Impeachment Support

 

CAMEROTA: “Also joining us now Rachael Bade CNN political analyst and congressional reporter for the ‘Washington Post.’ Rachel, those are really interesting numbers. I’m interested in the democratic support that’s gone from 90 percent down to 77 percent, which I think is notable, and I think that you have heard Democrats behind the scenes, I think you have, at least expressing some cold feet about some of this, and so it’s just interesting as the elected officials have to make a decision tomorrow and particularly the moderates and you’re seeing that public support even among their party drop.”

BADE: “Yeah, I mean, it’s really interesting. Clearly you’re seeing Democrats, at least some of them come around to Nancy Pelosi’s thinking. I mean, the speaker has always said that impeachment is a political loser. I mean, she didn’t think this was something that would hold, that would sort of rise to 60 percent or higher in terms of support for impeaching and removing the president, and I think that that is what you’re starting to see, because, you know, the public, they’ve sort of been watching this for a while. Perhaps people are becoming numb, and those numbers that were at the 50 percent mark are starting to come down, and I think that a lot of moderate Democrats who are in these battleground districts have been predicting this and worrying about this, and now they’re starting to see it. So they’re really, you know, taking a second look should they vote for this or not. I will say, you know, there was a big day for Democrats yesterday in terms of getting a bunch of moderate lawmakers that they thought might vote no actually coming out on the record and saying they will vote yes. And a part of that calculus is to realize these moderates are in a bad way — they are in a bad place either way they go; either they’re going to upset Republicans in their districts or they’re going to alienate their base.”
