Democrats and their enablers in the mainstream media are whistling past the graveyard this week, cheerily touting the success of their impeachment inquiry witnesses. They were especially jubilant on Wednesday after U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland confirmed that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani wanted U.S. officials to link the release of military aid to investigations into the Bidens. But no matter how powerful Adam Schiff may consider these witnesses, it’s clear that Democrats are losing in the only court that really matters – the arena of public opinion.
An NPR/PBS poll this week showed that 65% of Americans will not change their minds on impeachment, regardless of what transpires during these public hearings.
A new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that 10% of independents have actually turned against the impeachment inquiry since public hearings started last week.
And, in the one that should really terrify Democrats, a new poll from Marquette University shows that Trump’s popularity is growing in Wisconsin as the impeachment inquiry progresses.
Even as hearings that could lead to President Donald Trump’s impeachment heat up, a new Marquette University Law School poll of Wisconsin registered voters finds consistent, if sometimes modest, shifts in public opinion away from support of impeachment and toward supporting Trump in next year’s presidential election
For example, Trump holds small leads over each of four top Democratic candidates for president in head-to-head matchups in the new survey, while three of the Democrats held small leads over Trump in the previous poll.
In the new poll, 40 percent of registered voters think that Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 53 percent do not think so and 6 percent say that they do not know.
In October, before public hearings began, 44 percent favored impeachment and removal from office, while 51 percent were opposed, and 4 percent said they didn’t know.
The November results also find that 52 percent say they believe Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump’s political rivals, while 29 percent believe Trump did not do this. Eighteen percent say they don’t know if Trump asked this or not.
The ramifications of this survey cannot be overstated. People KNOW that Trump made a mistake when he asked Zelensky to look into the Bidens…and they still don’t think it is an impeachable offense.
Well…that’s the whole case right there! If Americans believe that Democrats are telling the truth about Ukraine and they don’t really care, then Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff have nowhere left to go.
Unless, of course, they turn this impeachment inquiry into a top-to-bottom indictment of Trump’s entire presidency, which we would not put past them. But if they can’t get anyone to care about this new scandal, how are they going to drum up interest in already-litigated scandals like Robert Mueller or Stormy Daniels?
Democrats are in real trouble here, and if their only answer is to double down, Trump is going to cruise into a second term without breaking a sweat.
