“Meet the Press” ventured outside the beltway to ask voters in early primary states what they thought about Democrats’ impeachment push—and the Left is not going to like what they had to say. 

"We went out and tried to find some voters to talk about impeachment. We had to bring it up to them, here’s what they told us," host Chuck Todd said before playing the video. 

"I think it's a waste of time," said Minnesota voter Jim Baird. "You have a bunch of kids fighting and not accomplishing what they are elected for."

Gary Chynoweth of New Hampshire pointed to the checks and balances within the government to take care of any issue. 

"I think we have a system of checks and balances, and the way it should work is that the House and the Senate should do what is set out in the Constitution," he said.

In South Carolina, Tracy Veillette did her due diligence and read the transcript between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky and said “there was absolutely nothing concerning to me. From one president to another, it was absolutely appropriate."

When Todd returned to the panel, New York Times reporter Helene Cooper questioned how representative it was of the American public. 

"I wonder who are all the voters that you're talking to," she said, "because I’m so inundated. Whenever anybody finds out I’m a reporter, all they want to ask me about is impeachment, and what’s going to happen."

"I just wonder, you know... you could have gotten, like, 10 other people saying something completely different," Cooper continued. "It is not as cacophonous out there in the rest of the country as it is here in Washington or in the big cities, I would imagine, but I sort of think that still starting to rise."
