Mitt Romney showed himself to be the worst type of craven politician in the U.S. He double talks and tries to take both sides of every issue. Thankfully, the voters in Utah are starting to notice that and that’s not good for Mitt.
The Washington Examiner reported that Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney lost support from Republicans and independents in his home state after he called for witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, a new poll shows.
The Morning Consult survey found that support for Romney going down after he called for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify at President Trump’s impeachment trial.
The poll shows that his approval rating is falling among Utah Republicans from September through December 2019, and independents also shifted to disapproving of Romney over the quarter.
In the prior quarter, 65% of Utah Republicans supported Romney, and while a majority still do presently, that number sank to 57%.
The numbers are very striking for Utah, one of the most Republican states in the U.S. Mitt Romney romped to victory in his 2018 Senate bid and has been considered a local hero of sorts among his fellow Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints constituents and others.
Journalist Paul McLeod reported in Romney’s shocking behavior.
“Romney says he wants to hear from John Bolton and others but wants to follow the Clinton impeachment process – meaning both sides present their case, then the Senate votes on calling witnesses. “Barring some sort of surprise I’ll vote in favor of hearing witnesses.””
Journalist Alex Bolton added:
“Mitt Romney says he’ll vote to hear from at least one impeachment witness: “I presume I’ll be voting in favor of hearing from John Bolton.”
“I support the Clinton impeachment model, which is a vote on witnesses later. But as to which witnesses I’d want to hear from, and so forth, that’s something which I’m open to until after the opening arguments.”
He also added that Bolton is “someone who I would like to hear from, and presumably, I’d get the chance to vote for that.”
