Impeachment is backfiring. A new national poll finds a sharp swing in opposition to impeachment among independent voters, the second major poll to display these findings just this week.

The latest poll comes from Emerson College finds that 45 percent oppose impeaching President Trump, against 43 percent who support it. That’s a 6-point swing in support from October when 48 percent of voters supported impeachment and only 44 percent opposed.

But more importantly, it shows more independents oppose impeachment than support it, a significant change from October. The new poll found 49 percent oppose impeachment compared to 34 percent who support it. In October, 48 percent of independents polled supported impeachment, against 39 percent who opposed.
