A recent poll revealed that nearly two-thirds of American voters say that no additional information will change their minds about what the results of the impeachment inquiry should be.

Four out of ten independents say they would reconsider their position based on compelling information, while only a quarter of Republicans and Democrats say they would do the same.

The proceedings are serious to 49 percent of those polled, while 47 percent said they are “just politics.”

While most participants agree that interfering with international relations in order to advance a personal or political agenda is wrong, they were not certain if they believed the allegations are true or that the allegations merit impeachment, according to Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

“Strictly on the merits of what has been presented, people think it is wrong for a president to interject a foreign leader into the United States’ electoral politics,” Miringoff said. “The disagreement is on whether or not it is a big deal which warrants impeachment.”
