Pub­lic Tells House Dems — Don’t Waste Time Inves­ti­gat­ing Trump: IBD/​TIPP Poll

The pub­lic wants the new Con­gress to focus on three areas when it con­venes next year: health care costs, immi­gra­tion, and jobs. Few, how­ever, want the Demo­c­ra­t­i­cally con­trolled House to make inves­ti­gat­ing the Trump White House a pri­or­ity. That’s the find­ing of the lat­est IBD/​TIPP poll. (…)

The nation­wide IBD/​TIPP poll asked peo­ple to list their first and sec­ond pri­or­i­ties for the new Con­gress from a list of nine issue areas. Health care costs came in at the top, with 40% list­ing that as their No. 1 or No. 2 priority.

Immi­gra­tion was a close sec­ond, with 36% list­ing it as either their first or sec­ond pri­or­ity. Fol­low­ing that was econ­omy/​jobs, at 30%. National secu­rity came in fourth on the list, at 22%.

Typ­i­cally, econ­omy and jobs have taken the top pri­or­ity. How­ever, as Amer­i­cans enjoy a good econ­omy and job mar­ket, they are able to shift their atten­tion to other press­ing issues such as health care and immi­gra­tion,” said Ragha­van Mayur, Pres­i­dent of Tech­no­Met­rica Mar­ket Intel­li­gence, which con­ducts the IBD/​TIPP poll. (…)

[T]he pub­lic [isn’t] inter­ested in the White House inves­ti­ga­tions Democ­rats have vowed to make a pri­or­ity next year. Only 16% ranked that as some­thing they want Con­gress to pur­sue next year. And just 15% listed gun-​related issues.

Cli­mate change and gun con­trol are near the bot­tom of this list as well — likely a func­tion of the typ­i­cal demo­graphic of Investor’s Busi­ness Daily’s readers.

Fur­ther down in the arti­cle, we get the par­ti­san dif­fer­ences with respect to priorities.

And now, let me answer the ques­tion I asked in the title …

Of course not. The Democ­rats will put the inves­ti­ga­tions first. They will keep try­ing to take down Pres­i­dent Trump until the bit­ter end, even if it’s their end. Vengeance is theirs.

You have to admire that level of dogged­ness. I guess

Public Tells House Dems — Don’t Waste Time Investigating Trump: IBD/TIPP Poll

The public wants the new Congress to focus on three areas when it convenes next year: health care costs, immigration, and jobs. Few, however, want the Democratically controlled House to make investigating the Trump White House a priority. That’s the finding of the latest IBD/TIPP poll. (…)

The nationwide IBD/TIPP poll asked people to list their first and second priorities for the new Congress from a list of nine issue areas. Health care costs came in at the top, with 40% listing that as their No. 1 or No. 2 priority.

Immigration was a close second, with 36% listing it as either their first or second priority. Following that was economy/jobs, at 30%. National security came in fourth on the list, at 22%.

“Typically, economy and jobs have taken the top priority. However, as Americans enjoy a good economy and job market, they are able to shift their attention to other pressing issues such as health care and immigration,” said Raghavan Mayur, President of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, which conducts the IBD/TIPP poll. (…)

[T]he public [isn’t] interested in the White House investigations Democrats have vowed to make a priority next year. Only 16% ranked that as something they want Congress to pursue next year. And just 15% listed gun-related issues.

Climate change and gun control are near the bottom of this list as well — likely a function of the typical demographic of Investor’s Business Daily’s readers.

Further down in the article, we get the partisan differences with respect to priorities.

And now, let me answer the question I asked in the title …

Of course not. The Democrats will  put the investigations first. They will keep trying to take down President Trump until the bitter end, even if it’s their end. Vengeance is theirs.
