Democrats are probably going to regret launching their impeachment inquiry.
Not only were the hearings last week terrible, but the American people lost interest very quickly.
In fact, a new poll suggests even many Democrat voters are losing interest.
The Hill reports:
Poll: Interest in impeachment inquiry dips among Democratic voters
Democratic voters appear to be losing interest in House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump, according to a new Hill-HarrisX poll released on Monday.
The number of Democratic voters who say they are paying close attention to the impeachment inquiry fell 5 percentage points to 73 percent in the latest nationwide survey.
The amount of independent and GOP voters who are keeping an eye on impeachment also saw a decrease. Fifty-nine percent of independent voters said they are paying attention to the inquiry, while 64 percent of Republicans say the same.
After holding steady at 70 percent in the past two surveys, the overall number of voters who said they are following the probe fell for the first time to 65 percent.
Unlike the prior surveys, the latest one was taken after Democrats held their first public hearing as part of their months-long impeachment inquiry. State Department officials William Taylor and George Kent kicked off the first round of televised hearings earlier this month.
This is really bad news for Adam Schiff and friends.

The do-nothing House Democrats’ doomed impeachment effort has succeeded in uniting Republicans and improving President’s @realDonaldTrump’s standing with independents ahead of 2020. Well played! https://t.co/ZP1Y2YcgdU

Democrats chose all witnesses.
Democrats cherry-picked leaks from the depositions.
Democrats broke House rules to block Republican subpoenas.
But the American people see through it.https://t.co/6yfJL0Sb9q

How much longer will this charade continue?
