Trump Impeachment is the Scott Walker Recall All Over Again

EXCERPT:

A few years before Trump won the 2016 election, there was another effort by the left to undo the results of an election. Remember the repeated and unsuccessful efforts to remove former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker from office?


Scott Bauer of the Associated Press makes an apt comparison between these two scenarios.

Via ABC News:

Trump impeachment drive has similarities to Wisconsin recall

A divisive leader drove the opposition to extreme measures. The political climate was toxic — with little civil debate or middle ground. The clash ended in a high-risk political showdown that captured the nation’s attention and shaped the next election.

This was the 2012 battle to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker, not the 2019 fight to impeach President Donald Trump. But for some who lived through the former, the episodes have clear similarities and a warning for Democrats about overreach and distraction.

“In both cases, they thought just as they were upset about something, everyone was,” Walker said, describing one of his takeaways from the campaign that failed to remove him from office. “Just because your base feels strongly about something doesn’t mean that the majority of other voters do.”

Independents played a key role then, just as they do now:

Walker saw his support among independent voters go from about even six months before the recall election to positive 16 points just before the election. The latest Marquette poll also shows independents currently breaking against impeachment, with 47% against and 36% in favor.

I was thinking the same thing.

And the scam blew up in their faces, "bigly". Just like this witch hunt will do as well.
