Rep. Connolly Admits Dems Worried Impeachment Will Help Trump in 2020

Could not load the poll.


Rush Transcript:

CONNOLLY: “I don’t think the Democrats, especially from really swing and competitive districts who really put themselves out there on the line, I don’t think they feel the same way. I think they want to see this process come to some kind of a conclusion.”

HARLOW: “I think you’re right. Look at the polling this week. CNN’s polling, it not only shows there’s a decline in national support for impeaching and removing the President from 45 to 50 percent. What was striking to me was what Democratic voters said. Yes, 77% of them still want the President impeached or removed from office, but that’s down 13 points from 90% in November. I’m interested in why you think that is? What’s the why for you on that?”

CONNOLLY: “You know, I don’t know that I would read a lot of profundity into a particular poll result. These things have gone up and down. I will remind you that the support for impeachment nationwide was 36% in late July and early August.”

HARLOW: “I hear you on that. It didn’t move for Nixon until like a month before. But just what’s going on in Democrats’ minds that there’s a 13-point drop in a month?”

CONNOLLY: “Well, I think partly, a lot of Democrats have concerns that as we get into the presidential re-election year, we don’t want impeachment impeding the ability, frankly, to compete and hopefully remove Trump from office that way. I hear that a lot from Democrats, a concern about that. So that may be part of the reflection. And as one of your panelists said just before me, the economy obviously has a positive impact overall polling, even with Democrats.”

HARLOW: “The economy is doing great, yeah.”
