“Would Republicans pay a price if they vote to impeach the president? Here’s what we know from 1974.”

I better post this one now because it might not be so relevant in 6 months . . .

Bob Erikson answers the question, “Would Republicans pay a price if they vote to impeach the president? Here’s what we know from 1974.” The conclusion: “Nixon loyalists paid the price—not Republicans who voted to impeach.”

This is consistent with some of my research with Jonathan Katz from awhile ago. See section 2.3 of this unfinished paper.
