Impeachment is supposed to be a serious path for a country to take and it is supposed to have many effects and implications, including the possibility of a fairly struggling economy, if not at least making the economy take somewhat of a hit. But the Democrats have made such a clown-show of this impeachment process from the start that virtually no one cares, President Trump will in all likelihood be re-elected, and the economy is absolutely roaring right now.
According to a survey from Gallup, U.S. economic confidence stands at a 20-year high with an Economic Confidence Index of +40. Gallup explains: “Americans’ buoyant confidence in the economy in Gallup’s latest poll, conducted Jan. 2-15, likely reflects the U.S. unemployment rate’s continued stay at a 50-year low. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average continues to reach record highs – and flirts with reaching the 30,000 marker.”
Gallup’s index takes into account two components: Americans’ current economic conditions and economic outlook for the future. “The current conditions component score of +54 is the result of 62% of Americans saying the economy is ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ and 8% describing it as ‘poor’. Meanwhile, the economic outlook component score of +26 is the result of 59% saying the economy is ‘getting better’ and 33% saying it is ‘getting worse.’”
No idea who is saying that the economy is getting worse, aside from maybe the fake news media, though they have mostly dropped the “we’re headed towards a recession! Everyone panic!” act. But apart from that strange figure, the rest of these numbers are pretty good. Consumer confidence seems pretty high and for good reason.
Gallup also found that the least amount of Americans in the last 19 years, since the Gallup began compiling this information, would name the economy as one of the country’s greatest problems. Only 10% of Americans say that the economy is a problem today.
In their conclusion, Gallup writes: “Rarely in the years that Gallup has tracked public ratings of the economy, since the early 1990s, have Americans had higher confidence in the economy than they do now. Nearly six in 10 describe the economy’s current state positively, and a similar percentage say it’s getting better.”
They also note how these numbers could help Trump to get reelected, which makes perfect sense and I agree. It is extremely rare, almost unheard of, for an incumbent president to be defeated while also enjoying a great economy. And considering this is the best economy we have had in a long time, combined with the fact that not one person on the Democrat debate stages could beat Trump, I’d say that his chances for reelection are very good (though that is, of course, not a license for complacency. Complacency is a killer for all campaigns and if we want to keep making America great again, we cannot let the bloodthirsty, insane Left get within 10 feet of a government office, wherever we can).
The impeachment of Donald Trump is so inconsequential (provided Republicans don’t completely blow it and have some of their more, shall we say, rogue members foolishly commit political seppuku and remove Trump from office) and such a farce that few people seem to care and the economy knows it. Any threat to a popular president presiding over a good economy will make the economy stumble at least a little. But the Democrats have been blowing this impeachment for so long (and continue to do so) that no one honestly believes Trump’s office is in jeopardy of removal. Even the usual suspects among the Republican Party are witnessing the Democrats blowing this and trying to stay away from it as much as they can.
I believe impeachment has signed the Democrat Party’s death warrant for this election season, but this strong economy should be the final nail in the coffin if it stays around these numbers (and it is entirely possible that we will see even better numbers, but I will keep from making such predictions as plenty can happen between now and the election).
In fact, the only reason they are trying to impeach Trump is because of how likely he is of winning in 2020. Adam Schiff has already practically admitted to that, though coming from the idea that Trump will “try to cheat” in 2020. They are trying to delegitimize the next election because they know they don’t have a prayer of beating Trump, so they have to try to do something here (though will likely prepare to get their butts kicked on this and will try again once Trump is reelected). The economy doing this well is simply another sign that the Democrats will not win this year, on top of all the other reasons.
To paraphrase James Carville, it’s the economy and the Democrats’ open incompetence, fella (not going to call you stupid as you very clearly are not).
