We’re a long ways off from the 2020 presidential election and the Democrats are nowhere near winnowing down their party’s ever-expanding list of goofball candidates who want to replace POTUS Donald Trump in the White House, but signs are increasing that the American people are fed up with their shenanigans.
A new survey fromÂ CNN, of all networks, provided a glimpse into just how far Democrats have pushed their base and the country in perpetuating the “Trump-Russia collusion” hoax, as well as their maniacal obsession with ‘getting’ the president.
The poll is also bad news for former President Obama, who was responsible for “Spygate,” the deep state attempt to undermine and depose his successor.
â€œThe American public increasingly feels that Democrats in Congress are going too far in investigating the President,â€Â CNN reports. â€œ[Forty-four percent] say Democrats are doing too much on that score, up from 38% saying so in March. That shift stems largely from independents, 46% of whom now say congressional Democrats are going too far.â€
And, mind you, these results came before Democrats wasted a whole day complaining about Attorney General William Barrâ€™s memo about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which Mueller told Barr wasÂ accurate.
However, the money portion of the survey is this:Â â€œ69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.â€
Why the Republican percentage wasn’t higher is a mystery, but the fact is, based on this survey, “an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the Obama Justice Departmentâ€™s actions in 2016 should be investigated,” PJ Media reported.
“The American people want answers about the Steele dossier, the FISA court approval of the wiretap, everything. What did Obama know, and when did he know it? Why did the Obama administration not do more to prevent or stop Russian cyber attacks?”
John Nolte atÂ BreitbartÂ explains, this was a poll of random adults and such polls tend to skew left, but they are â€œuseful in looking at trends, and this poll shows that the trends are almost all moving in Trumpâ€™s direction.â€
He noted further:
That 69 percent number, though, that is the real news here. What we have, even during these polarized times, is the unified belief the Department of Justice needs to be investigated, which is exactly what Attorney general Bill Barr and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have promised to do, which is why the media are already working overtime to smear Bill Barr.
Not just the media, but Democrats as well — because they know Barr, a long-time Washington shark, smells blood in the water.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the third-most powerful official in the country, just called Barr a liar. So did Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), whom no one outside of her state even knew until she saw a chance to reap some national attention during the Brett Kavanaugh circus.

In any event, Barr is taking it all in stride. He’s thinking, ‘Let these idiots take their best shot; when the smoke clears, I’ll still be here.’
But, based onÂ CNN‘s new survey, some of themÂ may not be past 2020. Time will tell.
The good news is, Americans who are fed up with the Democrat games and want some justice may just get it: Barr has said he’s already got multiple leak investigations underway and he’s looking at how the Trump probe began in the first place.
