New polling is suggesting that not only is President Donald Trump weathering the Democratic Party’s one-sided impeachment farce, but that he may be thriving.

Even worse for the left, polling shows Americans are quite pleased with the Trump economy.

And while it surely pained CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju to report it, nowhere is that more evident than in key battleground states.

Among the battleground states is Pennsylvania, which Trump carried in 2016 to the shock of many on the left.

Axios recently reported that not only has Trump surged in Pennsylvania, but in Michigan and Wisconsin as well.

“Democrats racing towards impeachment are at serious risk of leaving behind the voters they need to retake the White House next year,” Firehouse partner Alex Conant told Axios.

CNN recently interviewed voters in the Trump stronghold of Blair County and it was clear that the partisan impeachment ploy was rallying the president’s base to him.

“I think what they are doing is completely wrong and I’ll vote for him in the coming election,” one supporter said of the Democrats’ efforts to take Trump out.

Another supporter was more emphatic on how impeachment will impact Democrats.

“I think this just put a nail in their coffin,” he said.

It also seems clear that impeachment fatigue is a very real thing with Americans.

Philip Devorris, the CEO of Blair Companies, a full-service image/branding company, spoke well of the economy and said impeachment is just more polarized Washington politics.

“If it did anything it would make me want to support him more,” said Devorris, who voted for Trump in 2016.

The CNN segment was so convincing, the Republican National Committee put out its own clip of the spot Thursday.

 

Even Democrats in Pennsylvania have grown tired of impeachment, as seen in a clip from late last month being pushed by the Trump campaign.

“I am tired, I really am, I am tired of it all,” said Democratic voter Marta Laffert.


Sean Parnell, a Republican running for Congress in Pennsylvania, responded to a tweet from Thursday night’s debate, where former Vice President Joe Biden said he was willing to sacrifice growth in the pursuit of a “greener economy,” even though it could potentially displace many thousands of blue-collar workers.

“The answer is yes because the opportunity — the opportunity for those workers to transition to high-paying jobs … is real,” Biden said at Thursday’s debate. “We’re the only country in the world that’s ever taken great, great crises and turned them into enormous opportunities.”

“I’ll defend working class families in Western PA from this craziness. Oil & gas are a major pillar of our economy here, & I’ll not stand by & watch the far left destroy these jobs, & legacies Notice that my opponent @ConorLambPA is silent. Again @JoeBiden  is the “moderate” Riiight,” Parnell tweeted.
