President Donald Trump fired off a sinister tweet about Democrats on Tuesday as he railed against the House impeachment probe being led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Trump claimed that 2020 polls showed victory for the GOP despite Pelosi “doing everything possible to destroy the Republican Party.”
“The Do Nothing Dems will lose many seats in 2020,” he then wrote. “They have a Death Wish, led by a corrupt politician, Adam Schiff!”
Nervous Nancy Pelosi is doing everything possible to destroy the Republican Party. Our Polls show that it is going to be just the opposite. The Do Nothing Dems will lose many seats in 2020. They have a Death Wish, led by a corrupt politician, Adam Schiff!

But multiple polls show Trump trailing 2020 Democratic rivals Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and that a majority of Americans support either the impeachment inquiry or outright removing Trump entirely.
Additionally, a slew of House Republicans have chosen to retire over the past several months–not exactly a sign of good internal polling figures.
