70% want to see witnesses in the Senate trial. Why is the GOP ignoring the will of 70% of the population ?

It only makes sense you would want a John Bolton on the stand, and he's willing to do it, but of course they don't want Trump to be seen as the guilty man that he is.

Because they realize what a good chunk of those 70% don't: that witnesses will be bad for Trump.
There's two parts of that 70% of people who want witnesses. The majority of people are ones who think Trump is guilty and want witnesses in order to demonstrate his guilt. The minority are people who think Trump is innocent and think that witnesses will exonerate him. With perhaps a few exceptions, I doubt any GOP Senator is stupid enough to think that Trump is innocent. NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell has said that a GOP Senator told her that if the vote was held in secret, that there would be at least 30 Republican votes to convict. This means that the overwhelming majority of Republican Senators know he's guilty and would like to vote to convict him. They know that adding witnesses would just incriminate Trump more. This would make the partisan action they need to take, voting to acquit Trump, more difficult.

They've already been elected, so why should they care what voters want until right before the next election?

Because they care MORE about a cover up.
Which points to the real question we should be asking.
Is the testimony and documents being illegal withheld from the Congress even worse than the Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress charges?

Nice spin, The poll itself is a nice spin, Just using the word witness without clarifying new or not. The junk the house used is in, that includes those witness and or their statements. The only question that still remains is whether or not new witness should be allowed. So the media runs polls that are deceptive in nature, then report on the results which are faulty, and the flock, like yourself, echo , repeat, and believe the fake news.

Republican politicians are trying to keep their jobs and they will do anything to do that, including ignoring the majority of Americans.

Because they're counting on their base to be too stupid to see the Senate GOP's whitewash efforts. And they're hoping for a new Russian all-out propaganda storm on social media during the campaign.

The GOP represents a minority of Americans and governs as such.
