How much of what we see on TV results in influenced votes – not talking about ads

Talking about the impeachment thing…

Why do we have 4 people sitting around a table, on every channel talking about how they assume each Senator will vote and why.  They talk about the chances a Senator will change their vote.  Yeah … change the vote they have not yet placed!  Is this a sneaky way to try and influence the vote?

The notion that if they change their future vote, the reader will be more likely to support … what …. the person? the party? the president?  on conviction!
We sent them to do their job, let them do their job, vote and be held accountable to their constituents for how they voted. All votes are made public immediately after the vote.

In this case, I wonder how a secret ballot would turn out?
