Loesch: Dems Focusing on Impeachment and Identity Politics, Not Policy
Poll shows majority of Americans against impeachment.
Nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch said Democratic lawmakers like Rep. Maxine Waters may continue to call for Trump's impeachment, but polls show that's not what the American people want.
The California Democrat has been one of Trump's most outspoken critics, and she has doubled down on her anti-Trump rhetoric despite calls from some in her party to stop.
Noting that a recent Quinnipiac University poll showed that 56 percent of voters said they do not support beginning impeachment proceedings against Trump, Loesch said Democrats should focus on policy and substance.
"Maybe propose some policies and give voters some alternatives, instead of constantly complaining about Trump and also talking about issues that [voters] don’t popularly support," Loesch said on "Fox & Friends" Thursday.

She said Democrats need to sway independent voters to do well in November's midterm elections, and talking about impeachment and playing identity politics won't accomplish that.
If anything, she said, it could help drive Republican turnout in November.
Loesch added that Waters and other Democrats who advocate for impeachment have failed to explain on what grounds Trump should be impeached.
"Show me some kind of evidence. I haven't seen anything," Loesch said, noting that she was born in Missouri, whose nickname is "The Show-Me State."
"Show me some evidence. Show us something that's going to substantiate these silly claims. And if you don't have anything, maybe sit down and put out some decent alternatives that voters can consider going into midterms."
