Justin Amash Being Crushed by Double Digits by Primary Challengers in Poll

Michigan Republican voters aren’t happy with Amash’s decision to endorse impeaching the President.

New polling in Michigan’s third congressional district reveals anti-Trump libertarian congressman Justin Amash facing a difficult path to reelection.

Amash is trailing a primary challenger, State Representative Jim Lower, by ten percentage points. 17% of MI-3 Republicans support Amash, and 27% endorse Lower. The congressman, who bucked his party, joining progressive Democrats in backing the impeachment of Donald Trump, is tied at 17% with yet another state representative mounting a primary challenge, Lynn Afendoulis.

Tom Norton and Peter Meijer take 5% and 4% respectively in the Strategic National poll, which surveyed 400 Republican voters in Amash’s district from June 29th to July 1st.

Polling well behind relatively unknown primary challengers spells dubious prospects for Amash’s reelection, having represented the Grand Rapids congressional district since 2011.

The polling data supports the notion of Amash facing wide backlash from Michigan Republicans for supporting impeachment. Amash was forced to delete his own Facebook page on Wednesday, unwilling to accept harsh feedback from his traditional constituency unhappy with his decision to join hand-in-hand with Democrats in pursuing the removal of President Trump.

Facing abysmal polling around a year from an impending primary against low-profile challengers, it appears likely the Chinese-connected businessman and libertarian could be headed to similar pastures as retired anti-Trump Senator Jeff Flake, who was faced to bow out from his reelection for his constant agitation against the President.

With Amash out of the way, American patriots of Michigan’s Third District will very probably have a new Member of Congress focused on policy priorities, as opposed to Russia-conspiracy based leftist impeachment nonsense divorced from reality.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
