John Boehner must go, say 60 percent of Americans: poll

October 21, 2013

Fully six in 10 of Americans participating in a new poll say House Speaker John Boehner should leave his post in the House.

The survey, a CNN/IRC International poll conducted between Friday and Sunday, at the tail end of the government shutdown, also revealed that 54 percent of respondents aren’t happy that the GOP controls the House — a dire sign for the Republican Party, as the country prepares for the next round of elections.

The finding mirrors the findings of pollster Frank Luntz, who said during a recent Fox News appearance that his test group was angry at the Republican Party for the shutdown, but largely gave President Obama a pass. One of Mr. Luntz’s test subjects even called Mr. Obama “principled” for his recent stance during the shutdown.

The CNN poll numbers painting the GOP in a poor light is a significant increase from December 2012, when only 43 percent saw it negatively that Republicans controlled the House.

“John Boehner fares just as badly as the GOP,” said CNN polling director Keating Holland. “Sixty-three percent of all Americans think that Boehner should be replaced as Speaker of the House, a view shared by roughly half of all Republicans.”
