Will impeachment hurt voter turnout in Texas?


Groups on both sides of the political aisle are trying to increase voter turnout. Will the impeachment inquiry impact that?

Those groups are concentrating on younger voters. Vicky DeFracesco Soto at the University of Texas isn't sure impeachment moves the needle for that demographic.

"Things that impact your daily life is what gets you to vote. It's things like student debt. Things like that lead you to the polls," she said.

What about older voters? Political consultant Bill Miller says the rhetoric, more than the actual impeachment inquiry, will be what inspires them to go and vote.

"The stakes are so high. The rhetoric is so strong. Turnout will be strong whichever way this thing breaks," Miller stated, adding that voters respond to the emotions of issues when they decide when to vote, and who to vote for.
