February 3, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — What a difference a poll makes. A few weeks ago Liz Cheney (R-WY), the number three Republican in the House — for now — convinced nine of her fellow Republicans to vote to impeach President Donald Trump after a show trial lasting just seven hours.

The charge — ludicrous on its face — was one of inciting insurrection. Still, even Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House Republicans, said during the debate that President Trump “bears responsibility” for the Capitol demonstration.

Then out of Wyoming came a poll showing that nine-tenths of the voters in Cheney’s “home state” of Wyoming (she’s never lived there for extended periods of time) have now disowned her. More than half of her House colleagues agree, making it only a matter of time before this legacy Republican — she owes her position to Daddy Dick and Washington insiders — will soon be voted out of leadership.

She’s now a political zombie, having driven a stake into the heart of her own political career by her impeachment vote. She will be joined on the next episode of The Walking Dead by her nine colleagues, who likewise blew up their political careers for voting to impeach the outgoing president on spurious grounds. Primary challengers for each are already lining up. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Then Rasmussen reported that Trump’s overall approval rating was in the high fifties, and a Politico-Morning Consult poll showed that 56 percent of Republican voters believe he should run for president again in 2024. Add to this an Axios-Ipsos poll taken a few days earlier that showed that 92% of Trump voters wanted the same thing.

The next thing you know, McCarthy — facing a populist rebellion not only from the voters but from among his own Republican members — was flying down to Mar-a-Lago to mend fences with the once-and-future president.

McCarthy had belatedly realized that, if he was to keep his position as the leader of the House Republicans and have any hope of replacing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House in 2022, he needed Donald Trump’s support.

Or, to put it more accurately, he needed the support of the tens of millions of Americans who love life, cherish their families, practice their faith, want good-paying jobs, and long for their country to be great again. And who voted for Donald Trump because he defended them and their beliefs every day while he was in office.

It wasn’t so long ago that both major political parties agreed on such fundamentals, however much they disagreed on such things as tax rates, defense spending, and domestic social programs. But in recent decades the Democrat Party — once regarded as the second most conservative party in the world — has embraced abortion up to birth, attacked the traditional family, disrespected people of faith, and generally given the impression that they regard the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave as an irredeemably racist, sexist, transphobic hellhole destined to play second fiddle to China.

As the Democrats continued to tout their concern for the poor over the past couple of decades, they have quietly become the party of the super rich. Our new oligarchs — the one who control the high ground of the internet, e-commerce, media, entertainment, and Wall Street — are overwhelmingly Democrats. Because of the quasi-monopolies they enjoy, many have become fabulously wealthy while incomes for tens of millions of ordinary Americans have stagnated. Bezos makes billions by selling cheap goods from China, while running his warehouse workers ragged for a measly $15 an hour.
