Mitt Romney was pretty wishy-washy over impeachment. As a Republican (and supposedly honest lawmaker) he should have been be appalled at what the Democrats have done, right?
But instead of taking a stand with the rest of the Republican Senate, he voted for witnesses, and then he voted to convict Trump on abuse of power.
You might think he just can’t get over his 2012 loss. And that Trump won the Presidency that Romney lost (and you’d probably be right). Sure, he’s had some old spats with Trump.
But Donald endorsed the man in 2018 and he won his senate seat in Utah. Romney should be grateful that the president was behind him, right?
Wrong. He stood with Democrats and tried to have Trump removed from office.
Bad move, Mitt. And it seems like your own state thinks so too.
From Washington Examiner:
Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney lost support from Republicans and independents in his home state during the weeks after he called for witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial…
The poll shows the senator’s approval rating falling among Utah Republicans from September through December 2019, and independents also shifted to disapproving of Romney over the quarter.
Ouch. After Mitt Romney voiced support for the Democrats’ impeachment trial scheme, his approval among Utah Republicans and independents dropped.
The House Democrats rushed their impeachment inquiry, refused to wait for the courts, and forced a partisan vote along party lines, with 3 Democrats breaking rank and one of them switching to the GOP.
But Mitt acted like he could stay neutral, but his true intentions came out in his vote. We think the battle lines are pretty clear: you’re with the far-left Democrats trying to remove the duly elected president or you’re with Trump and the GOP.
Many leading Republicans have made it clear they are against this impeachment. Romney, a senator from the very conservative state of Utah chose the opposite.
And it looks like that is why his approval is dropping.
SHARE to tell everyone what Mitt Romney did!
