What Iowa voters think of impeachment What Iowa voters think of impeachmentImpeachment dominates Washington are CBS News campaign. Reporters have been asking voters in early States what they think of the investigation into President Trump people said before an event for Pete buttigieg in Washington. Iowa this weekend I would tell students if it’s been were divided before we. We at one time had a civil war, so don’t, let’s not say that is more divided than it’s ever been cuz, it’s not, but I’m looking for a candidate, all presidents that will bring us together and who does not disparage people who think differently. I think it’s a tension that we can’t afford to not president is Caitlin huey-burns, Leslie Sanchez and antjuan seawright Caitlin is a cbs.n political. Reporter Lesley is a CBS News, political contributor and Republican contributor and Democratic strategist. Welcome to all of you, Caitlin, you were in Iowa. This weekend, what did you hear from voters about impeachment? Did it come up? Much you’ll really doesn’t come up, but I did ask voters, you: are you paying attention to the impeachment inquiry and they are there if they’re paying attention, but not every little iteration and basically, what you’re? Finding from democratic voters, at least in Iowa, is that they’re interested in it they want Congress to, but that, but it is not top of mind, is not a top concern for them. They kind of see it as separate and think they’ve been talking about 2015 full year and a half prior to the 2016 presidential election, and The Only Name that any of these individuals wanted to talk about was Donald Trump. It was the or around him they like. The business in tune with with what feels comfortable to them, so I think they’re, very good early indicator just in terms of evangelists and early primary States, isn’t what we heard about what voters are and are not asking found in Iowa should Democrats be concerned. If this process drags out in the next year, lockout, whatever distracts, do Republicans try to make this about really tackle issues of corruption and breaking the law, because no one is above the law, including Donald Trump. I think, on the other, feel you have. The presidential candidates, who have to be laser focus on, try, determine or speak to vote as how they’re going to execute the plays. That Democrats Drew up in 18. That was able to help us win places that Donald Trump won the 60. For the most part, I don’t think the president need to focus what the Congress is doing. In fact, I think we should separate it because if they were to make it to that temporary public housing unit at 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue, they would have two different jobs. One will be the Executive Branch, the other will be in legislative branch and they will have a fundamental opportunity and obligation work together sooner rather than later debris. The way it needs to be said, the president’s moving money around that he’s managed to galvanized a really bifurcated party and bring them together in a way around one issue and they’re really focused on 20/20 because of I’m so unfair. So even people that were on the fence about the president have now come on board. Another topic, this escalating transparency battle that we are seeing shape up here between Elizabeth Warren NC businesses able to confirm today that’s right to judge Elizabeth Warren really going after each other Chinese to each other as people they need to take out to kind of advance and His work for Mackenzie and, of course, for the Trump Administration advising them and helping them on the border wall caused all sorts of Vito hand-wringing in the Democratic Party kind of what he had been doing. But he said he was under under non-disclosure that he had signed while they’re. So he couldn’t say everything Mackenzie has come out and said: look you can say the kind of work that you did so he released waiting on him was to open up your fundraisers. Joe Biden has fundraisers and he has reporters attend them, or at least one pool reporter. Who then tells the rest of the group people to judge has now so that he will open up his fundraisers to the Press. If that’s a significant Nancy has been going after her for her work. If you want me to release this, do you need to release your corporate clients of the money that you made over about two decades are really kind of 15 years. Really she made about 2 million dollars advise and corporate clients expansion. The same thing: the political sugar has worn off the new FrontRunner in good-o Antoine who’s. Bad weather is always been South Carolina and African-American. Voters that way it’s cute and it’s nice, but Biden has been able to take a look at the keep on tickets and they have neither. One of them have not been defined in this race into this point, trying to Define each other in competition for second place. Cuz most people are riding with buying on the floor gym. You saw a fiesty or Joe Biden, interacting with a voter in Iowa and really kind of on this Statewide bus tour. Trying to make the case of okay, who plays the building, I think a relatability, and why everyone wants to make assumptions and make comparisons to 2004-2008 16 is not this type of election. The system in my area is that mate to have too much disruption until African-American. Voters, in particular want to trust what they know and that’s why you see seeds as you seem to see them float with you. His reporters need to accept restrictions preventing them from investigating Bloomberg in his fellow Democratic candidates. View help us understand the difficult position position, because you know there’s lots of really great Bloomberg. Reporters who have been covering this race really vigorously to these candidates. Plans diving into their past. History could be an issue for him, because this is, as we saw with people to judge opening up. His fundraiser is Joe Biden already doing it on Elizabeth Warren going to putting that pressure on their is that that kind of pressure, so I’m interested to see if it comes up while he’s campaigning. If this is something that voters are caring about, Millie does I do a disservice to the great journalists? I wonder what you think Leslie from a republican point of view, 1 lunar abilities, you see when you look at Michael Bloomberg. Hairstyle, with a lot of people responded to the deficit he has if he doesn’t have a base of support outside the Northeast and that’s questionable a state as a governor sword of movement that is going to like you, have the Bernie Sanders. Folks were really collectible round, and I said of Ideal, you don’t see that was Bloomberg and it’s very difficult to create, despite how many dollars you put in your advertisement is what he’s going to do to highlight the failures of this Administration. This President and the Republican party – and he may or may not come across the Finish Line first as I park is not me, I think what he’s going to do to the environment, what is going to put into them more reminding voters with all his resources. Radio TV, a digital about what has not work and what Trump promised people to work and how those people argue with a going full-steam backward. Because of this President. I think that we’re at wear and tear on the president and pressure on the Republican Party, but you start with your positive you’re, not going to start with your negative, give me a flip going to go. He thinks he can be president and he’s going to aim for presidency he’s not going to be it’s a balancing act. You know for people out there so he’s already spending so much money, and I think that says a lot about this race. When you have someone like Cory, Booker who’s been trying to make that debates days, and he has been saying that look with Kamala Harris out of the race, taramore billionaire then unblock people was twice as much as she had raised the entire time. These candidates have angst about this idea of kind of buying your way into buying support being able to spend this kind of money, because that’s what it do supercapitalism be able to make so much money is your own expenditure there when you’re, not beholden to anybody like They are, and that has not translated into support the strap of banking, because people put money on a translate to voters, we’ve seen that narrative painted before and it did not work who makes this falls in the hands of African-American voters in the one thing I know, As being the resident, why we cannot be bought Impeachment is dominating the news cycle in Washington, but it appears to be a lower priority for some voters on the campaign trail. CBSN political reporter Catilin Huey-Burns, democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright, and Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez spoke to CBSN’s Elaine Quijano about how voters are viewing impeachment.
