Poll: Democrat Voters Suddenly Stop Caring About Impeachment Following Defeat

• by Matt Palumbo

In early May, Rasmussen reports asked voters "What should the Congress deal with first." At the time, 30% of Democrats said impeachment. The same question asked in October yielded an increase in the perceived "urgency" of impeachment, with 36% of Democrats prioritizing it as the number one issue.

And then, as Acquittal Week began, the same question found that over two-thirds of Democrats who previously prioritized impeachment as their #1 issue suddenly no longer cared. Only one in ten Democrats cared about impeachment anyone as soon as the reality of their forthcoming loss became apparent.
