Poll: GOP voters not enthused by Mitch McConnell as majority leader

September 7, 2017

POLL_MItch_McConnellA slim plurality of Republican voters are less likely to support their member of Congress if they backed Mitch McConnell to remain on as majority leader, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

The poll, which was conducted Aug. 31 to Sept. 3, found that just 28 percent of Republican voters surveyed said they’d be more likely to vote for a member of Congress that supported McConnell.

Thirty percent of registered GOP voters said they’d be less likely and 15 percent said it had no impact on their vote.

President Donald Trump has publicly and privately feuded with the Kentucky Republican during the summer congressional recess. The president said he was “very disappointed” in McConnell and criticized his inability to repeal and replace ObamacareMitch

    I hope the recent actions of RINOs, like McConnell and Ryan, do not make voters vote Democrat. We need to send those old career politicians, from both parties, into forced retirement. Should that mean replacing them with the other party? I say “NO”! What this country has been caught in is a good old fashioned rut. One party makes all kinds of promises. When they get elected they go back to business as usual. The voters get mad and vote in the other party. Again we get business as usual. What they all fail to realize is that you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results.

    Flake and a few Senate RINOs and every RINO in the House is up for reelection next year. Get them in the primaries. By encouraging new candidates to run against the incumbents in the Primaries, you can vote against the incumbent without having to sacrifice party loyalty. That is what happened to Arlin Specter, Tom Foley and Eric Cantor. They didn’t lose their seats to the other party in the General Election. They lost them in the Primaries. It happened then, and it can happen again.

    Last year the primary tool was attempted against Ryan in Wisconsin and Schultz in Florida. Although it wasn’t successful, it could be an indication that the primary idea is starting to catch on. Indications are that it may be attempted again in Wisconsin against Ryan. Perhaps if a lot more voters and potential candidates started using the primary tool, we may not even need term limits. In my opinion the Primaries can be more important than the General Election.

    I’m not saying anything new that I haven’t said numerous times before. Just saying the things that should be said over and over by a lot more people. I hope the primary idea catches on across the entire country. The primary tool can even work against the President. The Electoral College may be able to pick the President in spite of the popular vote but they have no say in the primaries. I say re-elect no one. Fire them all.

      I have been getting a lot of e-mails from GOP members, like Gingrich, asking me to help support the Conservative majority in Congress. They are asking me for donations to help to support Republicans up for reelection next year.

      As much as I hate to say it, a conservative Majority in Congress is a joke. Most of them are RINOs, so the Liberals never lost control of Congress. All that the RINOs have done is to join with Democrats against Trump at every turn. Why should I give any support and more of my hard earned money to the GOP General Fund? Much of that money will also go to help support the RINOs who have done everything to disappoint me and nothing to impress me. They work hard. I will give them that. They are working hard to make sure that two of the biggest campaign promises of 2016 will not be kept. Remember when George H. W. Bush said “Read my lips” in 1988? We all know what happened in 1992 as a result of that broken promise. The voters could fire them again.

      Perhaps the GOP should start building a campaign fund to help real conservatives unseat the RINOs in the primaries next year. That is something I can support. Unless that happens, I will make my political donations individually to conservatives I would want to support.

      The voters in Kentucky had a chance to dump RINO McConnell and replace him with Matt Bevin in the 2014 State Primaries. What were the voters in Kentucky smoking when they sent him back to Washington?

      1. The Redhawk says:

        As I recall Mitch Mc Turtle did a hatchet job on Bevin and as usual VOTERS BOUGHT THE LIES of INCUMBENTS….Time to Flush this T-RD out of Office!!!

    If these Idiots on the Republican side do not shape up then they should ship out. I will not continue to back a bunch that have it all in their lap and do nothing. They are running neck and neck with the dumocrats in stupidity. What is wrong with them, OH I KNOW President Trump is working at getting them off their dead asses and go to work. What a shame your free ride is over. My vote as well I am sure many others will go somewhere else.
    So get rid of one of the best dumocrat in the Republican party McConnell, or we will do it for you and a great number of his ass kissers

      Norman, agree. Yet, I hope we retain the majority BUT with Conservative Repubs, NO MORE RINOS!!!! In Janesville, WI, Paul Nehlen is running against Traitor Paul Ryan; in AZ, Dr. Kelli Ward is running against flaky Flake; in AL, Roy Moore is running against McConnell and Rove’s boy, Luther Strange. If you can, donate to those running against the incumbent RINOs, make calls, if you live there, go door-to-door for them, if you know people there, beg them to vote AGAINST the incumbents. We have to help OUR PRESIDENT help our country!!!

      I to am having a hard time on who to vote for or even vote at all. When there have so many we thought were good Conservtives and then when they get to DC they change and like so many they just “Go along to get along” Then the Rino leadership set out to destroy the true Conservatives who refuse to go along with them. For proof just look what McConnell is doing to judge Moore. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f401eafec615960c44af70003330ba103d61fdffb93067283dc33296d5cc806b.jpg
      I have no more skin to give to the Rino’s that are skinning America.
      These Rino’s are doing exactly what Nikita Khrushchev said.
      “When you are skinning your customers, you should leave some skin on to heal, so that you can skin them again”
      Nikita Khrushchev
      “When we lie to the government it is a felony, when politicians lie to us it is called politics”
      “Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us”

      There are a lot of RINOs up for reelection next year. Get them in the Primaries.
