I haven’t met one person who was a Trump supporter or independent before who now supports impeachment. Most confess absolute bewilderment the Democrats are going with something so obtuse. The polls are simply charting the increased willingness of pro-impeachment Democrats to answer their phones. This will go down as another one of the great mistakes in public political opinion polling. Meanwhile many moderate Democrats and independents are growing increasing disillusioned with the partisan, unprecedented, and nakedly unfair process being used. If Nancy was convinced the impeachment inquiry had real popular support, she would have a vote to establish such an inquiry. If she was convinced she had the goods on Trump, she would announce it with great fanfare and would publicly proclaim fair rules for the investigation. No doubt she’ll ram it through, but don’t pretend anybody in the general public has even the foggiest understanding of what it is about some call to the Ukraine that ostendibly has the Democrats so upset. Most telling, several people I know who have supported impeachment now confess they wish the impeachment push would come on something else other than the Ukraine call because they don’t really get what it’s about.
