Mitt Romney’s Utah Republican Approval Rating Plummeting as He Aides Trump Impeachment Farce

Romney is wearing out his welcome in the conservative state.

Published

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.

Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus

The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.

Published

on

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.

However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.

He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”

“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.

Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.

The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.

The poll asked the following question.

Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?

Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.

Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.

There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.

Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.

“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.

“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”

Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
