    🆘 Latest Poll update: The big problem for House Democrats is that after weeks of testimony, they still have no actual evidence to justify effectively shutting down Congress to put Americans through this charade. New polling out today from Marquette University Law School shows that Americans in Wisconsin, for example, now oppose impeaching and removing President Trump by double-digit margins. President Trump gets my conservative Democrat vote again in 2020 🇺🇸 MAGA.

    Watched the whole thing. Schiff stopped the Republicans a few questions after they started to tell the witness to only answer questions about the evidence being presented. To be weary of all of questions. Than schiff ignored a question of order when the Republicans asked if this was a evidence based inquiry. Never answered the question. Just says he wouldn't dismiss the question? Than Jim Jordan, just rips apart this whole impeachment hearing. Made a few points about the he said she said than told me that they overheard as they were walking by and pointed out that the whistleblower was there cause he herd something from someone that herd it from someone that was walking by and overheard the phone call. Taylor (whistleblower) started laughing as hes realizing how weird it is that he was there in the first place. Than Jim pointed out saying.... and this is there star witness, this is the Democrats star witness. What a joke!
    When I see that I laughed. At that moment I knew for sure that President Donald Trump is not getting impeached. And the Democrats are waisting the time and money of Americans trying to over turn the 2016 election because they know they have nobody and I mean nobody running for president as a Democrat that can beat President Donald Trump. ROFLMAO!!!!!

    "Impeachment Inquiry Damages Biden More than Trump Ahead of 2020"

    by Haris Alic 12 Nov 2019
    The Democrats impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump may just be starting, but it’s already damaged the 2020 ambitions of one high profile political figure-Joe Biden.
    When the impeachment frenzy began in September, the former vice president was still leading his Democrat rivals by solid margins, according to national and state polls. Weeks of revelations about influence peddling in the Obama-era State Department and the conflicts of interest between the former vice president’s office and the business interests of his youngest son, Hunter, however, have taken their toll.
    This was first evidenced by the Biden campaign’s fundraising troubles and has more recently been exhibited by the former vice president’s slippage in the polls.
    Since starting this campaign in late-April, Biden has dropped from leading his fellow 2020 Democrats by as much as double digits in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. A poll released from Iowa in late-October showed the former vice president in fourth place, trailing not only Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Warren (D-MA), but also South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Since that time, two other polls have also shown Biden firmly in fourth place, according to polling data compiled by Real Clear Politics.
    A similar situation has played out in New Hampshire, where Biden once led by more than 15% points, the former vice president has been eclipsed by neighboring state rival, Warren. In fact, Biden had not led Warren in the first primary state in any poll taken between mid-September and November. That trend was only broken on Monday 11 Nov 2019 when a Quinnipiac Poll found the former vice president with a 4% point advantage over Warren in New Hampshire. Although Biden’s campaign was quick to laud the poll as proof their campaign was rebounding, they failed to mention that the former vice president’s lead was exactly within the margin of error.
    Biden has also faltered nationally in the race for the Democrat nomination, although to less of a degree. In the weeks after Biden first announced his campaign, he led the field by as much as 32% points. In comparison, a Quinnipiac Poll from October 2019 found the former vice president trailing Warren, 21% to 28% resp. A similar Quinnipiac Poll taken just before the most recent Democrat presidential primary, which most pundits agreed was not Biden’s best performance, had seen Warren leading the former vice president more narrowly, 30% to 27%
    Several national polls from the past week Nov 2019 continue to show Biden in decline. A Monmouth University poll conducted between October 30 and November 3 2019, found the former vice president in a statistical tie with Warren, with both Democrats pulling 23% of the vote. Likewise, a poll conducted by The Economist and YouGov between November 3 through November 5 2019 showed Biden with narrow one point advantage, well within the margin of error, over Warren.
    Not only are Biden’s fortunes dropping in the race for the Democrat nomination, but his viability for the general election is also taking a hit. When Biden first entered the 2020 race, most polls had him leading the president by wide margins. In June, alone, a Quinnipiac Poll had Biden leading Trump in a head-t0-head matchup by 13% points, 53% to 40%. Now the former vice presidents leads Trump narrowly, often within the margin of error. An Emerson poll conducted in October 2019, indicated Biden only had a one percentage point advantage over Trump, 51% to 49%, in a hypothetical general election.
    The Morning Consult found a similar trend in its national polling data. In between June and October 2019, Trump was able to cut Biden’s lead in a potential general election by half. In June 2019, the Morning Consult’s poll found Biden with an 11 point advantage over the incumbent. The same poll conduct at the end of October 2019 found the former vice president only leading Trump by five percentage points. The president’s ability came from improved numbers among women and voters between the ages of 18-to-29 years of age-two demographic groups essential to a Democrat’s retaking the White House in 2020.
    Biden’s drop in the polls has occurred as his son’s wheeling and dealing in Ukraine has come to for-front of the impeachment inquiry. The controversy started when Trump suggested the Ukrainian government probe how Hunter Biden secured an appointment to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, an eastern European oil and gas Ukrainian government probe Hunter Biden’s role with Burisma Holdings. The younger Biden joined the company in 2014 around the same time his father was appointed to oversee Obama administration policy in Ukraine.
    As Peter Schweizer, senior contributor at Breitbart News, detailed in his book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, Hunter Biden secured the position, which paid as much as $83,000 per month, despite having no background in energy or Ukraine.
    Adding to concerns is the fact that at the time Hunter Biden joined Burisma, the company was seen as actively courting Western leaders to prevent further scrutiny of its business practices. The same month Hunter Biden was tapped for the group’s board, the government of Great Britain froze accounts belonging to Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky under suspicion of money laundering.
    Not only had Zlochevsky had his assets frozen in Great Britain, but the former Ukrainian minister of natural resources was also facing suspicions of public corruption at home. Zlochevsky would later be charged with corruption for using his ministerial office to approve oil and gas licenses to companies under his control.
    It is in the context of Burisma and Zlochevsky’s legal troubles that Joe Biden’s political influence has raised the most red flags. The former vice president has particularly drawn questions over his conduct in demanding the Ukrainian government fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in 2016.
    Joe Biden, who has publicly bragged about the firing, reportedly threatened to withhold more than one billion dollars in U.S. aid if the Ukrainian government did not remove Shokin. He has claimed the demand came from then-President Barack Obama, who had allegedly lost faith in the prosecutor’s ability to tackle corruption.
    Unofficially, though, it was known that Shokin was investigating both Burisma and Zlochevsky for public corruption. It is uncertain if the probe extended to Hunter Biden, although Shokin has recently admitted that prior to his ouster he was warned to back off the matter.
    Regardless of what occurred, Shokin’s successor, who is now himself being investigated for public corruption, dropped the investigation into Burisma and Zlochevsky. Although the former vice president and his son have denied any wrongdoing, voters do not seem to be buying their arguments.
    A recent poll by the Associated Press found that 69% of Americans believe Hunter Biden’s work on behalf of Burisma was inappropriate. Furthermore, a Harvard/Harris poll taken at the same time showed that a 51% of Americans think the younger Biden should return any money he made through his ventures in Ukraine.

Furthermore, a Harvard/Harris poll taken at the same time showed that a 51% of Americans think the younger Biden should return any money he made through his ventures in Ukraine.

    Glad we all agree that the majority in the US - perhaps even the world - want Trump impeached and imprisoned. Voting BLUE across the board in 2020!

    You don't have to impeach him, but if bribery isn't impeachable like the founding fathers wrote than the constitution doesn't matter and it's time for a new direction.

    1:55... Lol! CBS use of euphemisms. Calling it an "informal hold" instead of what testimony is showing it clearly was: i.e., an " illegal hold" on financial military aid aidppropriated by Congress to help Ukraine combat the Russian invasion of their country.

    Not true a lot of people I know thinks President Trump is doing a good job, with what he have to work with all the hater constantly attacking and blaming. California spent way too much money before Trump made office so he has to be careful with the money, make cuts and try to keep United State afloat. United State been getting rip off for awhile, he's making smart business moves I think. flyheight.com/videos/z6dzaz/
