Trump is not the only loser in the political impeachment game

December 18th 2019 marks a historic day in the United States history when the House voted and approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump making him the third president impeached in America’s history.

The two allegations, namely abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, were passed almost entirely along party lines by votes of 230-197 and 229-198 respectively. As a result, Trump has become an impeached U.S. president.

What’s more interesting is that Trump’s approval rating has risen during the impeachment drama. It was gathered that Trump’s approval rating climbed from 39 percent in October to 45 percent in early December. It can be seen that impeachment will not necessarily reduce Trump’s chance for reelection.

The completion of the House impeachment mission does not necessarily mean that Trump is destined to a downfall. The impeachment case will move to a Senate trial in January. The removal of the president from the White House requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate and currently Republicans have a 53-47 majority advantage
