There is certainly something to be said of “resistance” fatigue, especially as we enter the late stages of an already tumultuous 2019.
One could try to make the argument that this is purely political fatigue whose symptoms just happen to coincide with the escalation of rhetoric being exalted by the ever-annoyed Democrats, but there is much more to the story than that simple explanation can proffer. We are watching an egregiously divisive impeachment process unfold before our very eyes – one in which the liberal left has shifted and evolved their goals nearly continuously in an effort to undo the 2016 election.
Given just how tawdry and pathetic the entire “inquiry” has become, it’s no wonder that only the hyper-partisan are still interested.
While the poll shows that most independents are paying attention, it also shows that they are not as engaged as other demographics.
The poll showed that Democrats were the most engaged demographic — with 35 percent watching or listening to the hearing compared to only 26 percent of Republicans.
This could be the most accurate indicator yet that the entire process is being viewed as a sham, and exists as merely an extension of the Democrats’ “resistance” schtick.
Also, given the inevitable conclusion of an acquittal in the Republican-controlled Senate, a great many Americans have become cognizant to the fact that this truly is all for show, and that the Democrats are using impeachment’s favorability among the mainstream media to create a 24/7 anti-Trump campaign ad through their questioning and public statements on the matter.
