I may be in the minority when I think if this impeachment continues on the same path of Dems calling non witness witnesses who are not able to sell the narrative to the public who has given up watching their borefest that Trump ‘s looking into the matter of potential foreign/domestic corruptio, which is within his purview as the Presidency, to end corruption and coincidentally, should the corruption be proven, might also benefit himself politically, they will pull the plug and release their congresscritters who are in Trump districts to vote against impeachment so as to deny the Senate with its Republican majority the ability to wrest their tight control over the political narrative from them and call witnesses to make this a narrative about corruption and the Bidens, and not about Trump’s motivations in looking into it, which will force the Dems and allied MSM to publicly defend the optics of one of their leaders knee deep in using his Vice Presidential position to influence foreign countries to pay off his never do well drug addled unqualified son, Fredo Biden, through loans from an enemy country and board director positions.This is not about the law. It is about partisan politics, and the Dem and the MSM defense that it was all legal will not fly politically.

Trump’s support is baked-in.

Who do you know who has stopped supporting Trump as a result?

Who do you know who has had a belly-full of Schitt and Pelousy?

If they can’t deceit them, they’ll death them. It’s happened throughout history. Virtue signaling doesn’t work. Violence signaling is next. it’s just a shot away.

Re “executing,” I’d turn that around.

Shitt and Pelousy are losing, bigly...

If this is true, why are Dems continuing to win these off-year elections?

Behind door #3 is the escape door. “The impeachment is justified but is so divisive and is tearing at the fabric of our democracy, (Republic), so we will opt to vote for censure and let the voters decide in 2020”.

32% believe most reporters are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner. <

A lot of stupid people in this country. Or a lot of liars and stupid people.

And democrats? Lots of 'em really are delusional enough to believe the press is fair. If they ASK a member of the press how many Republicans work in their newsrooms they might be in for a shock. Most journalists will tell the truth... there are few to none.
Journalists systematically avoid answering that question, IMHO. “Journalists are objective” - except that objectivity is a goal, not a state of being, and except that it is much truer to say that “journalists are negative.” For the simple reason that good “news” is generally just things going according to plan (and thus isn’t surprising, and not interesting), and therefore journalists are on the lookout for bad news.

And, given that journalists know they are negative, the claim that “Journalists are objective” is a claim that negativity is objectivity - which is a fine definition cynicism.

The rest do not believe the press is trying to impeach the president. They believe the press is being truthful when it indicts the president for crimes great and small.
