‘Ready To Move On’: David Axelrod Says Democrat Voters Don’t Care About Impeachment

CNN analyst David Axelrod lamented Friday that voters don’t seem to care about the Trump impeachment trial, citing a tepid response he received on the topic in a focus group with Democrats on Friday.

“I was in a focus group this morning for the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago with Chicago Democratic voters and it was chilling to hear them talk about this because impeachment didn’t even come up,” Axelrod, the chief strategist for President Obama’s presidential campaigns, told CNN’s Erin Burnett.

“No one volunteered it for 80 minutes into the focus group. And you know, we’re right in the middle of the trial. When it came up, they said, ‘you know, it’s terrible what he did. The case has been proven. But we know how it’s going to turn out so, we’re not really that interested. We’re ready to move on.’”

Friday marked the third day of opening statements at the impeachment trial. House Democrats led by Rep. Adam Schiff have laid out the case for removing Trump for office on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of justice over his actions towards Ukraine.

Ratings for the trial have fallen short of what news networks and Democrats likely hoped. Viewership fell 20 percent between the first and second day of the trial, according to one report.

  1. Excerpt from Democrats’ Russia Paranoia

    This whole anti-Trump, collusion and now impeachment are all because the Dems lost an election and can’t get over it. Their minds have been so triggered and all they see is Trump, Trump, Trump, Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine and accusing Trump of making policies that will enable him to cheat in 2020.They are even saying his recent deal with China which will benefit all of America is designed so they will help him cheat in 2020. Will someone call the men in the white coats. I see a straight jacket and padded cells for some people with their paranoia delusions.

    During the impeachment trial this week, House manager Adam Schiff who reminds me of a serial killer about to strike with those insane bug eyes of his said we can’t let the voters decided the outcome of the 2020 elections because we can’t trust that decision. What kind of statement is that??? And he has the gall to call Trump a dictator??

  2. Count on this: any time any democrat, who consciously opposes the sovereignty of the individual in the eyes of God, opens his mouth; HE IS LYING!!!

    They may rationalize what Trump did (ask any New Yorker how the Trump family has been hated by the leftist liar news for decades and what is so different today than yesterday?) was “terrible” but they also think you and I are terrible because we insist individual liberty requires individual responsibility – which makes every one of them culpable for all the “terrible” things THEY have done. “Oh, no! Say it isn’t True” – the “little green wheels” are coming for them!

    But the Truth bears witness in EVERY mans’ heart and they know – even if they won’t admit it – Trump is NOT guilty! They simply busy themselves burying the Truth under mountains of rationalized socialist CRAP!!!

  3. The Democrats may be ready to move on, having failed, but We The People from ALL parties are not….we are demanding that heads roll, that all of the criminals in the obama administration who used their power and authority to get rich, be tried, convicted and imprisoned as notice to all who are lawless that even the very top of the food chain will be held responsible for their crimes!
