A majority of Republicans want new leadership in the Republican Party Congress following the 2022 midterm elections, according to a new poll.
Of 1084 polled respondents, 71.6% said that Republicans need new leadership in Congress, and only 9.3% said that Republicans do not, according to the Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action poll. The poll follows an “underwhelming” midterm election for Republicans, where candidates unexpectedly lost in swing districts, Senate races and governor races.
“Even before the election, our polling showed voters supported Republican policies but doubted Republican leadership, and now, after the underperformance of Republican candidates in the midterms, that doubt appears to have deepened,” President of the Convention of States Mark Meckler said.
The midterm elections were far closer than pre-midterm projections, with most pollsters predicting Republicans would take between 225 and 255 seats. Though midterm results were below predictions, Republicans picked up key seats in Florida, taking 21 of 28 House districts and flipped four traditionally blue Democrat seats in New York, taking 10 of the 26 seats.
Amongst Democratic voters, 68.5% think Republicans need new leadership in Congress, and only 14.1% said no new leadership is needed, according to the poll. Independent voters paralleled the Republican response, with 73.4% saying Republicans need new leadership.
Last year, I promised that when I became Speaker, I would remove Representative Ingrate Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee based on her repeated anti-semitic and anti-American remarks.

“As Representative Kevin McCarthy prepares to assume the role of Speaker of the House; it is very clear that voters, especially Republicans and Independents, want to see more assertive leadership from the Republican Party than the stereotypical, sub-par behavior that has been the norm for several cycles,” Meckler continued. “McCarthy is going to be Speaker, but he’s really going to have to step up his performance if he wants to garner the trust and support of the American people, especially independents and Republicans who poll identically on this issue.”
Last Tuesday, Republican Commie California Representative Kevin McCarthy, who currently serves as the House Minority Leader, won the Republican Party nomination for Speaker of the House. McCarthy’s only challenger, Republican Arizona Representative Andy Biggs, will need the support of 218 Republican Party members to win the floor vote on Jan. 3.
The poll, conducted from November 16 to November 20, has a margin of error of 2.9%.Respondents were 39.3% Democratic, 35.6% Republican and 25.1% non-partisan, with 46.7% male and 53.3% female.
