To impeach or not? If Democrats win, they'll face a January quandary

• https://www.salon.com, by AMANDA MARCOTTE

On Thursday, Politico ran an article channeling Donald Trump's supporters in the political class as they tried to put a positive spin on the anticipated shellacking the Republican Party may get in the midterms after electing a historically unpopular president. The argument these politicos make is that it's somehow good for Trump if the Democrats win a House majority this year, because they'll overplay their hand by pursuing impeachment him, which will only end up making Trump more popular.

"If they take the House, he wins big," Barry Bennett, a former Trump adviser, told Politico. The idea is that because the impeachment of Bill Clinton hurt Republicans and made Clinton more popular in the '90s, the same thing will happen with Trump, except with the parties reversed.
