Cheeseheads Explain Unique Approach to Dealing with Impeachment Mania

The sheer inanity of the Democrats’ push to impeach President Donald Trump is inspiring a wide array of reactions from within the American electorate.

On the left, there is a constant feigned disgust, symbolic of one’s oath to the “resistance”, that permeates any and all instances in which the Commander in Chief is mentioned or alluded to.

On the right there’s disgust too, but for the process and the intent, not for the actions of the President.  To the Republican Party, this entire fiasco has been nothing but an extension of the Mueller probe and the RussiaGate conspiracy theory.

In Wisconsin, a state that helped launch Donald Trump’s presidency, citizens are dealing with the impeachment kerfuffle in their own, unique way.

“Everything they say, it’s so repetitive. To me, it’s like they’re beating their heads against the wall,” said Harry Rose, a 78-year-old retired factory worker and Trump supporter in Racine County, a swing county in the swing state of Wisconsin.

Nicole Morrison, a 36-year-old nurse who can’t see herself voting for Trump in 2020, had a similar review.

“There’s so much information that sometimes it’s hard to decide which is the truth and which is just rumors,” she said. “So I just don’t pay attention to it.”

Wisconsinites tend to trend to the right when it comes to impeachment, at least when compared to the rest of the nation.

A CNN survey conducted over the weekend showed that 50% of Americans believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office, roughly the same as in late October and in late September. Meanwhile, Trump’s job approval has remained steady. A Quinnipiac University survey of registered voters nationwide also conducted this past weekend found a similar split on whether Trump should be impeached and removed, and just 13% of those who have an opinion say they might change their mind.

In Wisconsin, views on impeachment appear to be slightly more negative. A Marquette University Law School poll of Wisconsin registered voters that was conducted during the first week of the impeachment hearings showed 47% of registered voters approve of the job Trump is doing, and more expressed opposition than support for impeachment and removal, 53% to 40%, figures largely unchanged from October.

Impeachment cold soon become hard to ignore, however, as the process moves to the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by notorious anti-Trump Representative Jerry Nadler.
