Politics The GOP is intending to expose the Democrat impeachment questions as a partisan bust, launching a collaborated, multimillion-dollar advertisement blitz targeting pro-impeachment legislators serving in districts that President Trump won in 2016.
The GOP is, figuratively, dropping bombs on House Democrats, launching a $7 million coordinated anti-impeachment campaign spanning across 37 vulnerable districts. The huge project, which brands impeachment as a “politically motivated charade,” is coordinated by the American Action Network. The group deals with other “similar groups” and explains its mission as putting “center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American individuals and spurring them into active involvement in our democracy.”
The Politico Playbook describes the effort as “the most expansive, coordinated ad project on impeachment to date,” which indicates that internal polling– as it has in the recent past– recommends that impeachment is not resonating with voters.
The campaign includes “$ 5 million in new television advertising throughout 20 Congressional Districts advising Members of Congress to drop the partisan charade and vote ‘no’ on impeaching President Trump” and an extra $2 million “in digital and social media advertising encountering 37 Congressional Districts,” per the release:
NEW this early morning– > @AAN is going up on TV in 20 Congressional Districts with brand-new ads prompting Members of Congress to stop the partisan charade and end their impeachment of @realDonaldTrump
— American Action Network (@AAN) November 18, 2019
The ad campaign targets specific pro-impeachment Democrats such as Reps. Max Rose (D-NY), Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), and Joe Cunningham (D-SC) and utilizes damning remarks from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a centerpiece.
” This [impeachment] has to do with preventing a possibly devastating outcome from occurring next year,” Ocasio-Cortez stated throughout an appearance on CNN last week.
” Joe Cunningham promised to be various, however he’s not. Instead of working to protect our border, fix healthcare, and pass a brand-new trade offer with our next-door neighbors which produces genuine tasks, he supported the partisan impeachment examination,” the storyteller in the 30- 2nd advertisement spot targeting Cunningham states.
” Tell Congressman Cunningham, let the voters choose elections,” the narrator adds. “Vote no on impeachment and get to work”:
A similar advertisement targets Rose, using his own words against him.
” Max Rose promised to be various. He told us, ‘The reality is, impeachment will only tear our nation even more apart,'” the narrator in Rose’s ad states, calling impeachment a “politically inspired charade”:
The group is reportedly investing huge dollars on Rose alone– $500,000 It is also spending $500,000 “versus Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Susie Lee of Nevada.”
” Michigan Reps. Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens will have $400,000 versus them,” per Politico:
— EACH DISTRICT will have at least 800 points, a measure of the size and frequency of an ad project compared to the audience, on air. Reps. Anthony Brindisi (N.Y.), Kendra Horn (Okla.), Jared Golden (Maine), Xochitl Torres Small (N.M.) and Cunningham all have 1,200 points.
The $7 million advertisement blitz is indicative of growing confidence among the GOP in concerns to public assistance, or absence thereof, of impeachment.
A Republican National Committee (RNC) memo consisting of internal GOP ballot information, gotten by Breitbart News last month, revealed that the American public is losing interest in the partisan impeachment inquiry. Independents, especially, do not appear to support the effort, with 54 versus and 34 percent in favor.
As Breitbart News reported:
” We have actually seen public ballot significantly under sample Independent citizens, which is one of the numerous factors for a lot inaccurate public data over the past month,” the memo describes relating to the disparity between internal GOP numbers and public polling from wire service and polling organizations.
What’s more, internal RNC polling data, according to this memo, reveals Democrats have actually lost support amongst their own base substantially in just the previous week.
” Support among Democrats for the outrageous effort to get rid of the President from office is down 10 points over the past week,” the memo says.
An internal survey, performed by Public Viewpoint Techniques for National Republican Politician Congressional Committee (NRCC) and Group McCarthy last month, discovered that the majority of citizens in crucial congressional Trump-won districts do not see Trump’s call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky– a conversation which Democrats utilized as a driver to launch their partisan questions– as an impeachable offense.
As Breitbart News detailed:
The survey shows the majority, 59 percent, do not view the discussion as an impeachable offense, while 37 percent view it as impeachable. While viewpoints on impeachment are largely divided on party lines, the bulk of independents– 57 percent– do not see the discussion itself as impeachable.
The survey spelled difficulty for Democrats who hold seats in Trump-won districts. The huge bulk– 62 percent– consider the discussion between the 2 leaders was “suitable.” Only 33 percent considered it impeachable. Moreover, Republican candidates in Trump districts represented by Democrats hold a “double-digit advantage” over impeachment-supporting Democrats.
The bulk of participants, 58 percent, stated that Democrats “have not achieved much given that taking the House, and 62 percent believe that the impeachment inquiry will continue to sidetrack them from accomplishing guaranteed policy goals”– 2 points the GOP is driving home in the $7 million anti-impeachment project.
” The left has confessed time and time once again that impeachment isn’t about the facts, it’s about damaging President Trump for their political ends. But in America, citizens must choose elections on their own,” AAN President Dan Conston said, according to a news release.
He added, “Members of Congress need to stand up, vote no, and get back to work on the issues Americans care about, like passing a brand-new trade deal, producing excellent tasks, and protecting our border.”
