GOP Voters Want To “Ditch Mitch” As Leader, According To A Rasmussen Poll

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll released on Wednesday, a whopping 62% of Republican voters want Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to be replaced as the party’s leader in the U.S. Senate.

According to Rasmussen, two-thirds of respondents who identify as conservatives favor electing a new leader for the Senate Republicans.

McConnell should be replaced, according to more Democrats (58%) and unaffiliated people (63%) than anybody else. Only 21% of all likely voters think he should continue leading the GOP.
According to Rasmussen Reports, the majority of voters under 40 (53%) and nearly two-thirds of those over 40 believe that Senate Republicans should “dump Mitch.”

Following the defeat of Sen. Rick Scott’s, R-Florida, challenge, McConnell was re-elected as the Republican Senate leader last week.

The Trafalgar Group/Convention of the States Action poll results from Tuesday, which showed that 73.4% of GOP voters want new party leadership in Congress, were comparable to those in the Rasmussen Reports survey.

Just 28% of all likely voters, down from 31% in August, have a favorable opinion of McConnell. That includes the 5% of people who think extremely favorably.
In terms of House Minority Leader Kevin McConnell, R-Calif., more Republicans hold a negative than positive opinion of him (46% to 37%).

However, 46% of GOP supporters believe that McCarthy should continue to lead the House GOP conference, while 38% want a new leader.

McCarthy is opposed by the majority of Democrats (56%) and 46% of individuals who are not associated with any party.
42% of conservative voters want to keep McCarthy in that position, while 39% want new leadership for the House GOP.

Overall, 31% of likely voters believe McCarthy should keep leading the House Republicans, while 47% believe a new leader for the party should be selected.

Compared to men, women voters have more disapproving opinions of GOP congressional leaders, with only 24% of women voters favoring McConnell and 33% favoring McCarthy.

Overall, 33% of males think favorably of McConnell, while 41% think favorably of McCarthy.

On November 20 and 21, Rasmussen Reports and Paul Bedard’s “Washington Secrets” polled 1,000 potential voters. With a 95% level of confidence, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
