A brand-new poll by Charisma News has found that as of Nov. 15, nearly 90% of evangelicals are calling impeachment hearings either “a witch hunt” (62%) or “a waste of time and money” (28.3%). Only 5% say it’s a “valid course of action,” and another 5% say it is to “hold Trump accountable.”

As the impeachment dominates nearly every headline and evening news sound bite, President Donald Trump impeachment talk is louder than ever. Of course, this is nothing new. The week after a whistleblower repeated secondhand information that President Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine was an impeachable offense, former Gov. Mike Huckabee said in his monologue on his TV program in late September: “I thought that’s what we’ve had ever since he got sworn in.”

Democrats, angry that Trump won in 2016, have been trying to get him out of office almost since he was inaugurated, and this latest effort is more of the same. As Huckabee said: “This is, frankly, window dressing so the Democrats can say they’re trying to impeach the president. Now, don’t get me wrong. They’re going to do everything they can to do it. But you’ve got to have a reason. You can’t just impeach a president because you don’t like how the election turned out. And that’s basically what we’re dealing with.”

Later in the same show, Judge Jeanine Pirro blamed the deep state for all the impeachment drama: “They’re pretty much deciding how things should be handled. They don’t care what the rules are. They know how to circumvent the rules. They know what the loopholes are. And they get together, and they decide what they’re going to do. And a classic example was the effort to unseat a sitting president.”

While I want to be careful in predicting the future, I believe Donald Trump will survive this attack, too. I think the Democrats know they can’t beat him at the polls, but if they can create a “scandal” and make him damaged goods in the eyes of some voters, that may shift enough votes to steal the election from him. One of the reasons Trump could lose that I cite in my new book, God, Trump, and 2020 Election, is the dishonesty of the other side.

But let’s be clear. These impeachment efforts are not about what Donald Trump may have said in a phone call with the Ukrainian president. It’s that this president, as imperfect as he may have been in the past, has been standing for religious liberty and righteousness. He has stood with Israel. He … read more
