President Donald Trump cited unspecified polls to claim support for impeachment has dropped into the 20-percent range, and he was roundly mocked by other social media users.
Public opinion hasn't changed much on impeachment despite five days of public hearings, with nearly half of Americans in support of impeaching the president over his actions toward Ukraine -- but almost two-thirds say they can't imagine anything changing their minds on the issue.
Trump, however, keeps claiming without evidence on Twitter that public support is plummeting.
"Support for Impeachment is dropping like a rock, down into the 20’s in some Polls," Trump tweeted. "Dems should now get down to work and finally approve USMCA, and much more!"

Other Twitter users ridiculed the president's baseless claim.
