Mitt Romney is rapidly losing support from Utah Republicans, as the junior senator continues to flirt with the Democratic effort to impeach Trump by summoning left-wing witnesses for the upcoming yet doomed impeachment trial in the Senate.
Romney recently called for jilted neocon John Bolton to testify at the impeachment trial that began Thursday. Utah Republicans seem to have noticed, judging from new Morning Consult polling that shows the New Englander’s approval rating declining among the demographic from 65% to 57%.
The 65% rate was already low for a Republican senator in a conservative state, and the new polling shows that it might not be long before a majority of Romney’s own party disapproves of his job performance.
Perhaps fittingly, Romney’s polling has improved with Utah Democrats. 46% approve of the legacy Republican, whose feud with President Donald Trump is as lengthy as it as counterproductive and fruitless.
Utah voters won’t have a chance to select a new senator for Romney’s seat until 2024, an opportunity that gives the failed 2012 presidential candidate ample time to advance a globalist agenda in the Senate to the behest of his own voters.
Not only is Romney’s flirtation with Democratic impeachment proceedings deeply unpopular with his constituents; it’s also wholly pointless. There’s no chance that Democrats will secure the sixty-six votes needed to convict President Trump in the GOP-controlled upper chamber, even if liberal Republicans such as Romney go turncoat. Moderate Democrats such as Doug Jones have already expressed skepticism of impeachment, placing them to the right of Romney, at least in rhetorical terms.
Romney was elected in 2018 as something of a hometown hero, with his Mormon religion fueling his popularity in the western state thought of as the denomination’s capital. But merely sharing the religion of his constituents alone hasn’t proved enough to give him enduring popularity in the state, and at this pace, he may have to bow out of a potential reelection campaign in a manner similar to deposed Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
