    He was going to get primaried and his internal polling showed he would most likely get stomped.

    So he cut tail and ran, He'll still lose his seat in the next election, This is just bluster.

    This happens occasionally.

    The voters will ultimately decide Independent support will jump.

    Like I asked you previously.

    What has the republican party won under Trumps presidency?

    Where is all that support he supposedly has?

    During his election victory his coattails brought the House and Senate along even stronger than before which was a 1 seat majority before Trump came on the scene.

    The midterms I explained in my other post regarding your query.

    It's going to be huge in 2020.

    Come back with that same question then that will reflect his power ..... when he is on the ballot.

    The Democrats have a bunch of extra ones. Trump and the Republican party got trounced in the midterms.

    You know why?

    Americans want that mother ****er impeached so they voted for the impeachment party.

    Across America the republican party has been rejected, Democrats flipped state houses and governorships.

    The Republicans did not.

    It's one thing to vote no on impeachment, but it's an entirely different ballgame to change political parties over it!

    President Trump and congressman Van Drew "are expected to hold an event together next week."

    Right before the House vote!

    Of course a single vote won't change anything, or will it?

    The symbolism of a democrat dumping the democratic party over the farcical impeachment inquiry is HUGE!

    You're protecting your feelings by ignoring reality.

    Its a common practice amongst you "Red Hat" wearers.

    “It was supposed to be bipartisan, it was supposed to be incontrovertible. It was supposed to be something that was always on the rarest of circumstances,” Van Drew told reporters about impeachment earlier this week. “Well it’s not bipartisan.”

    Are you even aware that 65 Republicans retired just prior to the 2018 election.

    The Republican party had very little time to introduce and sell their newly minted candidates.

    Having said that the Democrat party did quite poorly when given the facts that existed on the ground.
