Nancy Pelosi and the hapless Democrats just got some very bad news. Now, everyone told them impeachment was a big gamble.
They knew it would take a miracle to convict in the Senate and sadly, most of their followers simply did not know that.
The sheep on the left will be very surprised when the Senate tells Pelosi and Schiff to go pound sand. But that is to be expected as most people simply don’t pay attention.
But the one group of voters who do pay attention and who politicians pay outsized attention to is the independent swing voters.
The swing voters decide every election as most people are now firmly entrenched on one side or the other.
So, Pelosi was watching the independent numbers with fear and curiosity and it now seems impeachment has backfired.
Key swing voters are moving towards Trump and away from impeachment and this is before Lindsey Graham investigates the Biden’s and the Senate acquits. Not good for Nancy.
From Fox News: Recent polling on impeachment indicates that independent voters are far from sold on ousting the GOP incumbent from the White House. In fact, the national surveys suggest support for impeaching and removing the president has deteriorated over the past month, even as the House inquiry has ramped up.
Fifty percent of independents questioned in an NPR/PBS/Marist poll conducted Nov. 11-15 did not support impeaching and removing Trump from office, with just 42 percent backing such a move. That’s a slight dip in support compared with the previous NPR/PBS/Marist poll – conducted the first week in October – when support stood at 45 percent…
…While impeachment still enjoys support from a slight plurality overall in an average of polls by RealClearPolitics, the RCP average points to a dimming view from crucial independents — indicating more independents are now opposed, in a reversal from mid-October.
A Gallup poll conducted the first two weeks of November – also before this week’s testimony – indicated that 45 percent of independent voters supported impeaching and removing the president – with 53 percent opposing the move. That’s a switch from October, when the previous Gallup survey put the split at 53-44 percent.
And just 42 percent of independents questioned in a Monmouth University poll conducted Oct. 30-Nov. 3 supported impeaching and removing Trump from the White House, with 51 percent saying no.
