The punditry continues to be flummoxed that President Trump’s support remains strong despite three years of fake news, lies, and propaganda but according to CNN, things are about to change.
In yet another example of the sad decline of what was once a legitimate news organization, the Trump-hating hacks at the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” have been reduced to wishful thinking that the president’s support will collapse as time ticks down toward next year’s elections.
That is the theory of CNN’s house historian Douglas Brinkley who has made a nice living putting out his books which are oozing with liberal bias and on the day after Thanksgiving, he worked to keep up the morale of the mob even as support for impeachment is on a steady downward trajectory.
CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley on a recent poll showing 50% of Americans support impeaching and removing Trump from office:

CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley on Friday predicted that public support for President Trump will collapse as House Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry against him.
“It just tells you what deep trouble Donald Trump is in, when you have 50 percent of the country wanting you not just impeached, but removed from office, and the game hasn’t even gotten fast yet,” Brinkley said on-air Friday morning.
“I think once the vote is taken by Congress to impeach him and he’s wearing the ‘I’ on his chest, you’re going to see that movement grow even more,” Brinkley predicted.
But what Brinkley neglected to mention are the recent polls rebutting the CNN narrative that show that following Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style hearings, that Americans are turning against the Democrats and their illegitimate impeachment scam.
Public polls are matching what we’ve seen in our internals:@realDonaldTrump’s approval is the highest it’s been since this sham began.
Opposition to impeachment is growing.
Most voters want Biden investigated – including over a third of DEMS.
This charade is backfiring!

CNN also keeps flogging the flaccid and lifeless Watergate horse, a scandal that took place almost half a century ago but to the old hippies who rejoiced when they were young and Nixon was taken down are by all appearances, looking to sip from the fountain of youth by doing likewise to Trump.
Those old hippies are now occupying the upper echelons of Congress and the mummified carcass of former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein continues to draw a paycheck at CNN so there is a vested interest in keeping the fires burning.
But the polls say otherwise and with the neo-Stalinist Jerrold Nadler convening another round of impeachment hearings this upcoming week just in time to drop it all in the Christmas stockings of Americans, those polls are not likely to change no matter how hard that CNN wishes that they would.
