Something interesting I recently learned.

By default, an impeachment would not prevent Trump from running for re-election and winning. The Senate has to also vote to disqualify the impeached president from holding future office.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

No reason to force a decisive confrontation that would absolve an opponent once and for all in the eyes of the public. Instead, let the issue linger as long as possible while worrying it like a terrier.



If they are going to, Nov 8th, to coincide with the launch of Death Stranding and it's divided America theme.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

At this point does it matter? Trump will not be getting another term. Just wait it out.

And Clinton was supposed to win without any doubts :)

Yes, let's wait it out!

For the OP: never... There is no reason to do that at this point.



If he is impreached, will Republican supporters take a page from Democrats and hit the streets to resist? I remember Hillary Clinton saying after she won, she was going to work hard to reunite America. They forgot all that when it didn't work out.

Same can be said about Trump.  He has lost most support except his base.  He will lose 2020 if he can't court any independents back.  They gave him the victory due to a few states in 2016 and if he loses the midwest states that carried him then he is finished.

If all states dealt their electoral votes proportional then he would have lost.  Winner takes all ensures if your side loses then your vote doesn't count.  My vote has never counted in a presidential election.  Which side do you think is scared if all votes counted?

They say every vote counts.  Well they are full of shit with winner takes all.  Winner takes all for electoral votes gave us two of our worst Presidents within 20 years.  If you want to keep the electoral college then keep it but have states split their votes proportionally.  Some states have started doing this however a majority are still winner takes all.

If the past years have taught us anything it's that it's absolutely irrelevant what happens in US politics unless you're part of the top 1%. Fighting against evil is meaningless because the majority of the population is either blind to it or doesn't care. The US hasn't been a democracy for some time now and since the people in power are only interested in consolidating and increasing their own power it will never change. Every week that passes I'm more glad that I haven't been born into that oligarchic hell hole they call the USA.

I've blown through many many irony detectors whenever the USA tries to lecture countries like Russia and China on democracy and freedom.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

From an outsider perspective, I believe the impeachment procedure would be a terrible move by the Democrats. It seems like the USA is all about courting the center, and while the Democrats think they might have sufficient evidence or reasons against Trump to start the procedure, I'm not convinced the majority sees it that way. The Democrats have mainly been opposing Trump through scandalizing him (which obviously doesn't work), but the only thing they seem to be doing in my opinion is handing him a second on a silver platter.
Impeachment will only embolden Trump's supporters and it will damage the Democrat's possibilities to court the center in the next elections.



I don’t love Trump, but what is the worst thing In the Muller report*? I keep hearing there are “many” impeachable offences but nobody has come up with anything really juicy. When the process started, didn’t we hope to hear they found a bunch of emails showing Trump and Putin outlining their plot and signing off with, “Let’s screw America hard, HAHAHA”?

As for re-election, I think the democrats need a better candidate than Joe Biden. He is another old white guy who can’t put up offences on the racist or misogynist fronts because they can be turned around on him. Approval ratings are low, but weekly reminders of Joe touching women and girls inappropriately for the whole election cycle can ruin Joe too,

*I am Canadian, if I am going to read reports, I guess it should be about SNC Lavalin.

Well, a +4 in the polls to a +2 in the election with the electoral college turning was always a possiblity, only some folks like the Huffington Post decided to ignore it.

But the Republicans won the presidential vote a single time after 1988 - Bush Jr. with over 50% approval, and a fairly centrist Republican congress. I'd say there is a very, very low chance Trump gets anywhere close to winning the popular vote.

Electoral college is another matter entirely, of course, and will probably be relatively tight even if the election is won by five points or more.
