However, in a letter to colleagues, he has pushed back on that claiming that he is undecided.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said in a note to his fellow Republican senators that he is undecided on whether President Donald Trump should be convicted if the House votes to impeach him.
McConnell said in the letter Wednesday: “While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.”
It is unlikely even if McConnell did support impeachment President Trump would be anyway.

According to a new poll, 85% of Republicans say that President Trump should not be impeached.
A new YouGov poll shows 84% of Republicans don’t think Trump should be impeached or resign.
About three-quarters of them — so ~60% of all Republicans — say that’s because he did nothing wrong.https://t.co/TiRGTjoVUM

It is important to note that as a whole 55% of Americans support President Trump leaving office:
When various options were presented to respondents together, we found a similar 55% majority of Americans who would prefer that the president leave before the end of his term next week — that includes 39% who would see him removed, plus 16% who would prefer he resign.
However, this number is likely not as important as the top number.
When you factor in Big Tech and the Media’s bias this would almost drop to a 50-50 split.
Establishment Republicans are beginning to get on board with impeachment. They are doing this because they want to take the party back from President Trump.
However, this poll shows only 15% of Republicans support them in this effort.
