    Because anyone with a brain already knows Trump will not be impeached but reelected and that it's all but over for the democratic party and it's demodumbass followers.
    I'm pretty sure this impeachment farce is gonna peter out on the house floor. If it doesn't the demodummies are even dumber than I thought.

    I don’t think it’s the impeachment driving it up, but the hearing with Horowitz that is, giving vindication to Trump, in many ways.

    I don't know what that means, and it doesn't demonstrate cause and effect. Not in the least.

    I'm staying fully invested for myself and my clients because of the data, not because of the impeachment hearings.

    You folks are so consumed by ideology and politics that you just make stuff up as you go.

    How do you know the impeachment isn't driving up the market? Likewise, how do you know that the Democrat's impeachment isn't what's responsible for driving up President Trump's popularity?

    His presidential approval is now higher than Obama's was, at the same point in time in his presidency...

    "As of today (10 Dec 2019), Trump enjoys an average approval rating of 45 percent. On this same day during his (failed) presidency, Obama averaged just a 43.5 approval rating..."

    Media Fail as Poll of Polls Proves Trump's More Popular than Obama

    In the middle of an impeachment, no less. Wednesday's Emerson poll also shows Trump beating every other candidate in the 2020 election.

    I think the Dems may be playing their impeachment game as a counter to what the GOP/DOJ comes up with, thereby characterizing both as partisan political efforts that "we need to move beyond." Wouldn't that be magnanimous of them?
