    Could impeachment cost the GOP its Senate majority?

    Could impeachment cost the GOP its Senate majority?



    With the Senate unlikely to remove President Trump from office, the impact of the impeachment trial is most frequently viewed by whether it will help or hurt his reelection chances in November.

    But it’s not just the electoral prospects of the president that are under the microscope as the Senate trial kicks into gear. The fate of a handful of incumbent senators facing tough races — and ultimately whether Democrats or Republicans control the Senate after 2020 — may be on the line.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell currently oversees a 53-47 Republican majority. Democrats would have to flip four seats to gain control of the chamber if Trump wins reelection and only three if a Democrat unseats him, thanks to the vice president’s role as the tiebreaking vote in the Senate.

    Forecasters say as many as eight GOP-held seats could be vulnerable. Two Republican incumbents, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Susan Collins of Maine, are running in states that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Seats in Arizona, North Carolina, Iowa, Georgia and Kansas could also be within reach for Democrats, experts say. Only one Democrat, Alabama’s Doug Jones, is seen as being at risk of losing his seat.

    Control of the Senate will be crucial during the next presidential term. A Democrat could win the presidency thanks to an ambitious set of policy promises, only to have their agenda blocked if Republicans maintain control. If Trump wins a second term, he could find himself battling both houses of the legislature if Democrats take the Senate and hold on to the House.

    I have already conceded the next Presidency to Trump but nothing would put more stress on that big fat heart of his then a Democrat controlled House and Senate.

    No way he lives to 2024 if that happens.

    While it appears to be hurting Trump and the GOP in the court of public opinion right now... who knows in the long run?

    Politics are whimsical.

    LOL

    I don't even want to watch the freak show that would unfold if that happened.

    You know it would be fireworks.

    I prefer my politics nice and boring.

    It would almost be worth another 4 years of the orange idiot for that to happen. Impeached his first term, gets nothing done his second term because Congress blocks everything. His presidency would be so insignificant that it would make Carter seem like FDR.

    ABSOUTELY!!!

    The chances of ANY Dem. Senator losing the 2020 election over this is almost NIL.

    The chances of SEVERAL vulnerable GOP Senators lowing the 2020 election is VERY, VERY possible, if not PROBABLE!

    You "concede" the election?!?!?!!? A ****ing (no offense meant) CANADIAN?!?!?!?

    Sorry....you can "concede" all you want. It ain't gonna happen. Trump is toast. All that's left is the yelling and screaming.

    It's going to be a unique journey to the election given the unique circumstances of Trump's presidency.

    Trump hasn't enjoyed a net positive approval rating since Day 12 of his presidency. Day 12!

    That's an unprecedented level of unpopularity.

    The Democrats will really have to **** up royally to piss this one away. The sad part is, there's always a chance they'll do just that.

    Stop making things up that you don't know about. There is no polling at the moment to show how vulnerable or protected impeachment is going to make the Senators. Could it have an effect? Sure, but to say the chances of losing a seat is either nil or potentially probable is nothing but partisan hackery.

    And yet Bernie's living with dead heart tissue. Yet many libs want to elect him because his heart muscle will magically heal itself.

    Re: Could impeachment cost the GOP its Senate majority?

    Any Republican Senator that doesn’t demand every witness to come forward, should be voted OUT.

    Please. I don't need polling to know what is going on...or to make predictions. Please...take your blinders off.

    Unfortunately I did, it’s just the same partisan bs that you’ve been spewing since you came back.

    Every Democrat Senator that doesn’t vote for witnesses should lose their seat in 2020 or whenever their next election takes place.
