That support for impeachment didn’t move from 50 per cent to 60 per cent or more in the aftermath of the impeachment hearings doesn’t surprise me. What does is the assertion that these numbers are baked in and that the upper limit in support for impeachment has been reached. It’s too early to arrive at that conclusion.
I like to think of the impeachment process as a breaking dam and we are seeing the first flush of Trump’s criminality pouring out into public view in a new way. The hearings were a major moment in this process, but there is more to come, not least the formal impeachment document in December and the impeachment trial early next year. In the meantime, fresh disclosures and revelations of the misdeeds of Trump and all will continue to see the light of day. Things are fluid.
