A majority of voters believe Republicans need new leadership, according to a new poll.
“Most voters believe Republicans need new leadership in Congress post-midterms, a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey found,” reported Breitbart.
The survey, taken shortly after the midterm elections which saw Republicans taking back the House and Democrats retaining the Senate, asked, “After the results of the 2022 midterm elections do you think Republicans need new leadership in Congress?”
71.6 percent, voted, “yes,” new leadership is needed.
“The survey was taken November 16-20, 2022, among 1,084 likely general election voters and has a +/- 2.9 percent margin of error. It follows Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) winning reelection as Senate Republican Party leader despite ten defectors supporting Florida Senator Rick Scott (R-FL). Former President Donald Trump is among those who publicly stated that Scott would be ‘much better than’ McConnell as leader,” reported Breitbart.
“Well, I think he’s got a lot of pressure,” Trump said to Glenn Beck. “He’s … his wife is a big person for Chinese investment, and his family and him in Communist China. I don’t think that’s appropriate. No, I think Rick Scott would be much better than McConnell.”
“Now I’m not a fan of McConnell and I am a fan of Rick Scott, and you have others in there that would be very good,” Trump added.
McConnell said that he was in “no way offended” by having an opponent or facing opposition.
“Meanwhile, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted in favor of Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) taking the helm as leader, setting him up for a speaker vote in January, where he needs 218 votes,” reported Breitbart.
“Next year, Republicans will start every day of Congress with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. No exceptions,” McCarthy said.
