    As the Democrats' impeachment narrative crumbles so does the public's support for their latest effort to steal what they couldn't earn in the 2016 presidential election. The three latest polls cited at RealClearPolitics reveal public support is down half of where it was only a week ago.

    From RCP:

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/e...eachment_inquiry_of_president_trump-6956.html

    Of course, many of us predicted this would happen so it comes as no surprise to everyone who has been calling BS on the Dems' latest hoax du jour from the start. Another thing that comes as absolutely no surprise is how quickly the Dems' narrative and public support are falling apart.

    The message to Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the impeachment crowd is clear:

    Meanwhile, John Durham's investigation is expanding...:lol:

    I'm reading it correctly,

    The polls taken this week by Reuters, Politico and Economist/YouGov polls have support at +6, +6 and +4 respectively, which is down considerably from last week's Quinnipiac, WaPo and IBD/TPP polls which had support at +10, +17 and +11 respectively.

    Averaging them together, you have support down to 4.6% from 12.6%. If I read anything incorrectly it's how far support has dropped - it's worse than half. It's down almost a third. :lol:

    Obviously, you're not looking at the polls posted at RCP today.

    No, you're not.

    I do find New Left Math amusing, however. +4 and +6 support is greater than +10, +11 and +17 support. :roflol:

    You just don’t what a week is. 2 weeks ago Reuter’s showed plus 2, now it’s plus 6. Support tripled in 2 weeks!

    Except it's not a burn at all. :smile:

    it was more like a smooth lotion containing 100% pure soothing schadenfreude.

    Oh, look - numbers just in from NPR/PBS/Marist are down too, and so is the RCP average. :lol:

    YouGov jumps around in all their polls — they are one of the few that have had trump with positive approval in the last twelve months. Also to get a direct comparison you need to cross match polls. I can go to trumps presidential approval right now and find a variation of ten percentage points during the same polling period.

    Back to your impeachment data:
    Reuters
    This week +6
    Last week +2

    Politico
    This week +6
    Last week +3

    YouGov
    This week +4
    Last week +11 (outlier)

    Quinnipiac
    This week +10
    Last week +7

    Washington Post (outlier) (no cross data)

    IBD (no cross data)



    You didn’t think this one through, overall popular support for impeachment is growing

    In 2 weeks Quinipiac went from 7 to 10.
    Politico went from 3 to 6 in two weeks.

    Great analysis and well-reasoned.

    Anyone who reads that (and understands polling) could NOT possibly think that support for impeachment is"crumbling".

    Then again, it is possible that people exist who don't understand polling.

    Exactly.

    The RW always seem to find those "Outliers" to fuel their confirmation bias.

    Same way that they Trump up Rasmussen "Approval" Polls (when every other poll says the opposite).
