As Twitchy has been reporting, as Special Counsel Robert Mueller‚Äôs report on alleged collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia comes closer to being released, a lot of people who were hot to remove the president from office seem to be pouring cold water on just what the report might contain.
Resistance leader Rep. Adam Schiff, in particular, has been coy about the report recently, suggesting in February that perhaps Mueller‚Äôs investigation hadn‚Äôt been thorough enough, refusing to tell CNN whether he‚Äôd accept the findings in Mueller‚Äôs report if it did not find evidence of collusion, and then telling ‚ÄúMeet the Press‚ÄĚ that Mueller was under ‚Äútime pressure‚ÄĚ to wrap up his investigation¬†and thus didn‚Äôt subpoena Trump.
And then there was Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing in a Washington Post Magazine profile last week that she was opposed to impeaching Trump, saying, ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs just not worth it.‚ÄĚ
The Resistance is still hungering for the report, to the point where Newsweek reported elderly Americans feared they‚Äôd die before getting to read it. But according to a new CNN poll, appetite for impeaching President Trump is at an all-time low.
New @CNN poll just out shows support for impeaching Trump has dropped to its lowest level ‚Äď from 43% to 36% ‚Äď mostly thanks to a 12-point drop among Democrats

Wow, a 12-point drop among Democrats. Does Pelosi really wield that sort of influence over the party? Or has the process just ground people down to the point where they realize 2020 is where the action is?
Nancy driving the narrative ???

The Pelosi effect.
‚ÄĒ Amy Shaw (@AYS1960) March 20, 2019
Pelosi driving down those numbers?
‚ÄĒ Martin Kr√łger (@martinkroeger) March 20, 2019
Pelosi owns the party.
I am fine with that but it is a simple truth

Because Pelosi told Dems not to.

I remember Pelosi saying we have to impeach first so we can find out what crimes Trump committed.
‚ÄĒ Poorman77 (@Poorman771) March 20, 2019
Well, if they don't impeach him, they will never know if he even committed any crimes.
‚ÄĒ Steve Nosek (@keywest2) March 20, 2019
Nancy knows what she is doing. He is going to get himself impeached
‚ÄĒ Lizalba (@LizTorralba3) March 20, 2019
Well, the House has to vote first to start any impeachment proceedings, so no.
This is Dem's version of "Lock her up!" They aren't even aware of that ?‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ

One wonders if there is a corresponding drop among Dems for the election. What with the drastic drop in @CNN viewers who you know are lefties, it looks more and more like Trump will win 2020.

Sorry haters. People like jobs, economic security and have now realized that Mainstream Left Media have been lying about President Trump for over 2 years

Rep. Maxine Waters hardest hit? Or does that honor go to Rep. Rashida ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre gonna impeach the motherf***er!‚ÄĚ Tlaib?
Bless his HEART! Rep. Adam Schiff‚Äôs WaPo op-ed sounds like he‚Äôs NERVOUS about Mueller‚Äôs final report and it‚Äôs GLORIOUS https://t.co/hXWjmT9e2E
