The Only Thing The Senate Trial Will Do Is Kill Support For Impeachment

Why did the Dems hit the Pause button and then relaunch impeachment?

One answer is that they were carefully watching the polls. As they rammed through the articles, support for impeachment among independents had collapsed. (Dems and Republicans don’t really matter as the partisan positions on both sides are locked in.)
