In what can be considered a real ‘boomerang effect’ against the Democrats, President Donald Trump’s approval has been rising in recent days. On Dec. 9 it reached 51%.
Last week, when controversial Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff presented a report to accuse President Trump again as part of the impeachment inquiry against him, Trump’s approval rating was 46%, according to a daily survey by Rasmussen Reports.
After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) herself accused President Trump and the Democrats summoned legal scholars to testify, the president’s approval rose throughout the week, to 51% on Friday, Dec. 6.
In fact, as the impeachment against President Trump continues on its course, there are fewer and fewer representatives—including among the Democratic ranks—who support the action.
“At this time, I do not expect any Republican to vote in favor of impeachment. We’ve seen this since the beginning of the investigation,” said committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.).
In a conversation with Fox News, Collins added that “at least” two Democratic representatives have spoken out against impeaching the president.
It should be noted that the approval rating of Democratic President Barack Obama at the same time in his presidency was only 45%.
Indeed, so far no evidence or witness has been presented to corroborate the Democrats’ premise: that President Trump allegedly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy during a telephone call on July 25 to investigate the son of his eventual political rival in the 2020 elections, Democrat Joe Biden.
The White House published the transcript of the call where it is observed that although the issue was mentioned, there was no threat. President Zelenskiy himself later clarified this on several occasions.
“Much like the Mueller operation, Schiff’s impeachment hoax is one big opposition research/harassment campaign designed to interfere with an election,” journalist Cristina Laila said in an article in The Gateway Pundit.
Polls have also revealed little American public interest in the impeachment process.
Moreover, voters in historically Democratic districts themselves have also spoken out against impeachment, demanding an end to this investigation of President Trump and calling for resources to be used for issues more important to the nation.
Trump’s approval rating is even more significant if one considers the constant attacks by the main media against him, which have even reached 96% negative coverage on him since the impeachment began.
“On the one hand, this is utterly amazing. On the other hand, it’s also as expected,” said journalist Michael Van Der Galien in a report for the conservative PJ Media explaining, “Mainstream media and the Democratic Party are one and the same.”
While the impeachment inquiry continues, under the Trump administration, the United States has the lowest unemployment in 50 years and for the first time—since there are records—achieved energy independence.
