The world is made up of two types of people. There are believers, like Rep. Maxine Waters, who continues to this day to believe, if on blind faith (she admits to having no evidence to back up her convictions), that Donald Trump colluded with Russia. And then there are disbelievers, like CNN commentator Jeffrey Toobin.
When presented with the results of a recent poll conducted by own network and showing a steep decline in Democratic support for impeachment, from 90% down to 77%, Toobin was incredulous, telling his colleagues, “I don’t believe that poll for one second, the 90 to 77%. I don’t believe it. It makes no sense that that number would change like that. … [T]hat poll is wrong. Just because I said so, OK?”
In case you yourself are a disbeliever, here is video evidence that he said it:
Has Toobin not been paying attention to the polls in general, which during the House hearings showed few Americans changing their view on impeachment and those who did tended to oppose it?
It’s not entirely clear where Democrats go from here. They refuse to believe that Donald Trump is innocent of attempting to game the election despite the lack of hard evidence of such a claim in the July 25 transcript. Now they are refusing to believe that their theatrics of the past two months have been unpersuasive.
