Senator Learns The Hard Way Not To Challenge Trump During Impeachment

More News For You

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) is learning the hard way that in the Trump era his little games are not going to work. This time he is paying a heavy price back in his home state of Utah over his decision to call former national security adviser, John Bolton, to testify in the President’s Senate impeachment trial.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Morning Consult survey found support for Romney, 72, going down after he called for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial.

The poll shows the senator’s approval rating falling among Utah Republicans from September through December 2019, and independents also shifted to disapproving of Romney over the quarter.

Romney had an enormous amount of supporters in the third quarter of 2019 with 65% of Republicans on his side. But that support has now dropped to 57% which for an incumbent in a red state is rock bottom. Romney did, however, receive more support for Democrats in his state but that won’t save him because Utah is by far one of the reddest states in the country.

From the very beginning of the impeachment process, Romney has been anti-Trump. Even when the now-infamous transcript of the phone call between President Trump and the leader of Ukraine was released Romney called the conversation “troubling.”

To make things even worse for himself Romney has joined a very small group of Republican senators that want John Bolton, Trump’s former national security advisor,  to testify as a witness in the Senate Impeachment Trial. That decision is what appears to have lead to the drastic drop in his support.
Republican Senators and Congressmen had better pay attention if you are not with President Trump you may lose what little support you may have. Just like Romney, eventually, their “rhino” games will catch up with them.
