Voters Say Impeachment Unlikely from Mueller Report Despite Media’s Efforts

Voters think Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is unlikely to help congressional Democrats impeach President Trump, but they expect reporters to try to hurt the president with it if they can.

Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree and say the report is likely to help impeach the president, but that includes only 14% who feel it’s Very Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Biden Would be Arguably the Most Experienced New President Ever By Kyle Kondik

He will run as the president who needs no training. But he may be the candidate who cannot be trained.

KEY POINTS FROM THIS ARTICLE

— If Joe Biden wins the presidency, he will bring with him nearly a half-century of elected officeholding experience, giving him perhaps the fullest resume of public service possessed by any new president ever.

— It may be that Democrats are more open to a very experienced candidate than Republicans were in 2016, when they selected a presidential nominee, Donald Trump, with no elected or military experience.

— Biden has a very long record to defend, a burden that other, much less experienced candidates do not have. He also will have to show that he has learned from past mistakes and can run a disciplined, strong campaign.
