Republican Voters Feel Betrayed by Boehner, McConnell
Republican voters feel betrayed by their leaders.
Conservatives across the country who are frustrated with the failed leadership of the Republican Party are not alone.
A new Gallup poll released yesterday shows that only 22% of Americans view Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) favorably compared to 41% who view him unfavorably.
Likewise, only 23% of Americans view House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) favorably compared to a whopping 54% who view him unfavorably. This is his lowest rating since becoming Speaker.
These dismal numbers are driven largely by voters in their own party who feel betrayed by their failure to govern as conservatives.
More Republican voters now see Speaker Boehner unfavorably than favorably (42% unfav, 37% fav) while Republicans are essentially split on how they view Senator McConnell (32% unfav, 34% fav).
This is more proof that the GOP establishment’s decision to compromise with President Obama rather than keep their word and fight to stop his liberal agenda is not only hurting the country but it’s giving Republicans a bad name.
These poll results also provide yet more evidence that voters are upset about the constant betrayals by GOP leaders.
But while their intellectual bankruptcy is downright depressing, the fact that so many voters are beginning to see the light is heartening. If we’re going to save this country, we need Americans to rise up and replace establishment Republicans with principled conservatives.
MAKE 2016 MATTER
Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) was one of the very first organizations to sound the alarm about these two leaders, and now at least half of Republican voters nationwide agree that they’re part of the problem.
Our founder, former Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), started SCF to fight back against the DC crowd that didn’t share our principles and only sought more power, and we remain committed to that mission today.
Thank you for being part of our team and for doing so much to help SCF promote conservative policies and elect true conservative leaders.
We have a tremendous opportunity now to reach millions of Republican voters who are looking for a way to turn DC upside down and truly fight for the principles of freedom that make America great.
SCF knows how to do that, and working together, we can make it happen.
Please forward this email to anyone you know who might want to help us, and encourage them to sign up to receive our updates.
Thank you for your support and for standing strong for freedom.
