Do you have confidence in the speaker of the house?A second round of poll results from a survey of Republican voters taken Christmas week was released on Sunday. The poll shows that a revolution is at hand with a stunning majority of 2014 GOP voters who gave their party control of both houses of Congress ready to throw out the Republican leaders of both houses in favor of new leadership.

Only sixteen percent of voters surveyed want both John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to serve as leaders of the House and Senate respectively when the 114th Congress convenes this week. Boehner’s support on his own for Speaker of the House of Representatives is a pitiful twenty-five percent while McConnell’s support for Senate Majority Leader is just as bad at twenty-seven percent.

Do you have confidence in the speaker of the house?Do you feel John Boehner has been a positive or a negative for the Republican Party? Republican voters nationwide overwhelmingly want their House representative to elect somebody other than Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of the House, a new poll from Pat Caddell’s organization Caddell Associates shows.

A whopping 60 percent of voters who voted for Republicans in the last election either definitely or probably want their member of Congress to elect someone other than Boehner on Jan. 6, when Congress convenes, according to the poll. The voters were asked: “As you may know the new Congress will select its leaders in January. If it were up to you, would you elect John Boehner to continue as Speaker of the House or would you elect someone new?”

posted by Leave a Comment

Rep. Jim Bridenstine staying true to his core beliefsThe day after Republicans won the largest majority in the House of Representatives in almost 100 years and won a significant majority in the Senate, our liberal activist President claimed to hear the voices of all the people who didn’t vote.  It was another example of stunning obstinacy from this President.

It seemed Democrats were melting down, Republicans were unified, and all we had to do was buy enough time to get our Republican reinforcements to Washington in January.

Report: Boehner’s Amnesty Omnibus Begins To Fall Apart
by Matthew Boyle

posted by Leave a Comment

John-Boehner you need to listen to the people An action alert sent to Capitol Hill staffers from CQ Roll Call suggests that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to fund President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty action for illegal aliens in a “CR-omnibus” bill may be beginning to fall apart—even as Nancy Pelosi’s top lieutenant Steny Hoyer has been pushing Democrats to help Boehner pass it.
