Democrats lost their minds when Trump won in 2016.
And they’ve never gotten over it since.
Now, a bombshell poll shows just how far “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has gotten.
Democrats hate President Donald Trump.
After two years in office and four years in the political spotlight, it’s clear that the entire Democratic Party has an irrational hatred of the President that is bordering on the absurd.
Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want nothing more than to see the President impeached and removed from office, while others such as Barack Obama want to see Trump removed or defeated in 2020 in order to preserve his liberal legacy from his own time in office.
Even more, the field of Democratic candidates in 2020, headed by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, has used hatred of the President as a major litmus test for the Democratic nomination. If a candidate isn’t sufficiently hateful towards the President, it’s unlikely they’ll ever win the nomination.
But a new poll reveals just how deep this hatred goes.
ScottRasmussen reports that “Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Democrats believe that, in his relations with the Russian government, President Trump is guilty of treason. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that just 14% of those in Nancy Pelosi’s party disagree while 29% are not sure.”
Overall, just 33% of voters believe the President is guilty of treason, while 45% disagree. The rest remain undecided on the question.
Treason is a serious charge. So serious that it’s actually spelled out in the Constitution as one of the few federally listed crimes.
Treason is one of the most difficult crimes to convict someone of as well, due to the constitutional process that is laid out to define and try someone for treason.
“The belief that the president committed treason is shared by 28% of men and 37% of women. There is a significant generation gap: 48% of those under 35 believe he is guilty, a view shared by just 20% of senior citizens. Twenty-six percent (26%) of white voters agree along with 49% of black voters and 50% of Hispanic voters,” adds ScottRasmussen.
It’s not a simple thing to throw around, especially directed at the President of the United States.
And yet nearly 60% of the Democratic party electorate believes, without any evidence, that the President committed treason.
This is madness.
There is zero proof whatsoever that the President ever committed treason.
In fact, there’s plenty of proof to show that he never committed any treason, due to the extensive Mueller investigation that recently concluded, showing that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians in the 2016 election, which Democrats claim was stolen from them.
But with Democrats like Nancy Pelosi running out of options to remove Trump from office short of defeating him for re-election in 2020, it’s clear that Democrats are now just grasping at straws at this point.
They’re going to run with any story they can get their hands on to justify hating the President, even if there’s no evidence to back it up.
And they will use that manufactured outrage they’ve directed against Trump to motivate their base to go out and vote in 2020 all in the name of stopping Trump.
It remains to be seen whether or not that will be a successful strategy however.
