So half of all Americans still think Trump should be removed from office, but [View all]

apparently this is BAD for Democrats?

CNN Poll: No change in views on impeachment after public hearings

Seems that the media is telling me this morning that this is a fail for Dems, because "the numbers haven't moved." Well excuse me, but HALF THE COUNTRY WANTS TRUMP REMOVED FROM OFFICE. Fewer than half think he hasn't done anything wrong. And this is a fail because the numbers haven't moved?

Why is this not a fail for Republicans? According to them, Trump has done nothing wrong. Yet it would seem that after two weeks of nationally televised hearings, during which Republicans have had equal time to present their best defense of Donald Trump and his -- according to them -- completely innocuous activities, HALF THE COUNTRY STILL WANTS TRUMP REMOVED FROM OFFICE.

Dear Media, the numbers favoring impeachment were SIGNIFICANTLY lower just a few months ago, before jumping up once Trump's crimes were exposed. If the hearings over the past couple of weeks haven't moved the numbers, that means that Republicans have failed to present a compelling defense of Trump's crimes. Because if they had, surely the numbers would be moving back to where they were before the hearings.
