GOP isn't cracking and FOX News is still all in for Trump [View all]

All this talk on here around the Impeachment forcing FOX and some Republicans to waver in their support of Trump is premature. The GOP is still all in with Trump. FOX still spews his side 24 hours a day. Picking out a random Rep who said Trump shouldn't have said something, or a 20 second clip of a FOX anchor questioning Trump is folly.

The impeachment Inquiry has hardened GOP and FOX support of Trump, not softened it. All of these threads are not telling the story. The Republican Party is no closer to doubting Trump than they were before the story. That's why the Democratic Party must take their time and have public hearings around impeachment that show the public how clear this case is.

Impeachment is a political process, seeing the political winds honestly is a key to being successful.
