For the first time since the media launched the Ukraine Hoax, support for impeachment is underwater in the average of all the polls.
Although support for impeachment never went over 50 percent, a plurality in favor of impeaching did stubbornly hold the lead in polling averages — at least, until Monday, the start of the week when the Democrat-controlled U.S. House is expected to pass two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
One week ago, according to the RealClearPolitics poll of polls, 48 percent of those polled supported the impeachment and removal of Trump, while 45 percent were opposed. As of today, though, those numbers have flipped around: 46.7 percent support impeachment, while a plurality of 47.3 percent are opposed.
To the surprise of no one who watched the impeachment hearings, it was precisely those hearings that killed support for impeachment. Once the hearings launched, support began to face the pull of gravity that comes with having no evidence to back up your wild accusations.
Out of the seven most recent impeachment polls released, four of those seven show the public opposes impeachment, in two cases, by a majority of 51 percent.
