Oh, lookie here:

The most vulnerable Republican senators are not improving their standing in their home states ahead of a tough 2020 election cycle, while the field of potential Democratic challengers took shape and began to flex its muscle.

According to Morning Consult’s latest quarterly Senator Approval Rankings based on nearly 534,000 responses from registered voters collected July 1 through Sept. 30, Republicans representing Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina, Maine and Iowa all saw their net approval — the share of voters who approve of a senator’s job performance minus the share who disapprove — decline between the second and third quarters of 2019.

Amazing how that works. Once the House took decisive steps and the public realized this was serious, voters start to pay attention and when they do, they see what's going on. And they are starting to look at his enablers.

The best way out of this for everyone is that Trump resigns. Mitch wouldn't have to force his Senators to take the tough vote and they get that potted plant Pence, who will probably lose, but will potentially preserve the Senate.

The problem is that the only way Trump will resign is if he's blackmailed into it. And it's hard to imagine there's anything out there that would be so bad it would persuade his cult to betray him if they find out what it is. Honestly, after all he's done, I can't imagine what it would be.

Unless he succeeds in stealing the election in 2020 (a serious possibility) he will probably not survive. The question is whether or not those Senators are willing to go down with his ship. I seriously doubt that Trump's foreign friends will put in the same effort to help them. Why would they? He's the great prize.
