A new national survey shows devastating results for Democrats who are pushing impeachment. Results from 2 different major polls this week show that independent voters are opposing impeachment, hard.
Emerson College’s most recent national poll results concluded that 45% oppose impeachment, while only 43% support it. Since the last poll collected in October, that’s a 6 point difference when 48 percent of voters supported impeachment and only 44 percent opposed it.
Democrats chose all witnesses.
Democrats cherry-picked leaks from the depositions.
Democrats broke House rules to block Republican subpoenas.
But the American people see through it.https://t.co/6yfJL0Sb9q

More from The Hill:
More importantly, the poll shows more independents now oppose impeachment than support it, a significant change from Emerson’s polling in October. The new poll found 49 percent oppose impeachment compared to 34 percent who support it. In October, 48 percent of independents polled supported impeachment, against 39 percent who opposed.
Since October, Emerson has found Trump’s job approval rating jump by 5 points, from 43 percent to 48 percent.
This is the second poll this week to show voters are increasingly likely to oppose impeachment, despite wall-to-wall media coverage of the House hearings that have produced bombshell testimony about how Trump threatened to withhold financial aid to Ukraine if the country did not open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, a top contender for the Democratic presidential nomination.
