It turns out Nancy Pelosi was right on one thing: The Democrats should not have pursued impeachment in an election year. Now, President Trump has won on both the law and the politics of the impeachment battle.
The 2020 election will again be about turning out a candidate’s base, rather than winning the middle. Trump, especially, has devoted himself fully to turning out and winning his base. Meanwhile, the Democrats—split between progressives and moderates—are still looking for their base.
Without question, the Democrats’ move to impeach the president has stirred up Trump’s base more than theirs. The Trump team successfully argued that the relatively weak impeachment case brought in an election year was, in effect, an effort to take away the people’s vote. On the heels of impeachment, the president’s approval rating is up.
Democrats now face a high price for their political miscalculation.Read More »

In Hong Kong, protestors are risking their lives to maintain their independence from China. While they put life and limb on the line, they’re waving American flags and singing our national anthem. Right now, the United States is engaged in a trade war with that very same government that the people of Hong Kong are fighting against.
That’s why the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act should be passed and signed immediately. The bill, which has bipartisan support in the Senate and House, reaffirms our commitment to Hong Kong’s special status and sanctions those who oppress the city.
Both Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell have signaled their support for the law, which is a rarity in modern politics. The people of Hong Kong deserve independence. Passing this bill won’t solve their struggle for liberty, but President Trump’s signature will show that the world’s sole superpower is on Hong Kong’s side, and on the side of freedom.Read More »
The Democrats seem to have an impeachment problem.
Recent polling from The New York Times and Siena college shows that in six swing states that President Trump won in 2016, registered voters generally support the impeachment inquiry, but oppose impeaching the President and removing him from office, by a margin of 53 to 43 percent.
So, the more Democrats pursue the impeachment of President Trump, the more it seems to work against them. That’s because this pursuit seems to come at the expense of progress on the issues voters actually care about, like jobs, the state of the economy, and keeping our communities and country safe. Historically, it’s been these issues that have a greater impact on the outcome of elections.
Nancy Pelosi has boasted that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time—in other words, pursue both impeachment and progress on the pocketbook issues that Americans care about. But in watching them recently, you have to wonder if that’s really true.Read More »
