President Trump continues to support Roy Moore‘s Senate candidacy, despite continued allegations of his pedophilic behavior. This has the potential to impact impeachment in two ways. The first is through the public’s reaction. If Roy Moore causes enough voters to turn against the Republican party, then the Democratic party stands to gain a Congressional majority. Though a simple majority is not enough to impeach Trump, it certainly makes impeachment more likely. Which brings us to the second factor: the Republican Party’s reaction. Should Republicans, who have been distancing themselves from Moore, view Trump’s support as a political liability, they may begin to shift away from the President as well. The combined effects of loss of a congressional majority and shrinking Republican support, would make impeachment substantially more likely.
