A new poll from Gallup poll indicates that establishment RINO leaders, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are facing a growing problem of bipartisan discontent among Americans, showing that their “go along to get along” attitude with the dictatorial Obama regime and radical leftist Democrats is backfiring more than the squishy and unprincipled duo could have ever imagined.
The new poll, conducted August 5-9, shows that only 23% of Americans view John Boehner favorably, a new all-time low for him. Among Republicans, still an overwhelming number disapprove of Boehner, known for his uncontrollable crying outbursts, with only 37% having a favorable view.
Backroom dealing, back-biting RINO Mitch McConnell, who is so charismatic that nearly four in 10 Americans (37%) have never heard of him, didn’t fair much differently.
McConnell, who became the Senate leader in January following a string of campaign promises that have already been broken, has only a 22% approval rating among Americans, with only 34% of Republicans finding McConnell favorable.
Both Boehner and McConnell have come under fire for supporting the funding of Obamacare, Planned Butcherhood, Obama’s illegal amnesty, as well as failing to fight to stop granting Obama fast-track trade authority.
Late July, conservative Congressman Mark Meadows from North Carolina launched a new resolution on the House floor, filing a historic motion requesting that establishment RINO Speaker of the House John Boehner vacate his position as speaker.
The blistering resolution stings Boehner with charges of causing the power of the legislative branch to shrink under his reign, as well as punishing members who vote in a way contrary to what Boehner desires.
McConnell’s decline falls on the heels of 2016 presidential candidate, principled constitutional conservative fighter Ted Cruz’s historic July takedown of the conniving RINO on the Senate floor for various lies (yes, he actually used the unpopular word that’s rarely used in D.C., “LIED”) McConnell has told to his fellow Republicans, the American people and the media in order to conceal his dirty dealings that support the Obama regime and big government.
To grasp the significance of Boehner and McConnell’s poor showing, their favorability ratings are even worse than hated California Communist Nancy Pelosi’s were while she was Speaker of the House prior to Boehner assuming the helm in 2010. In October of 2010, Gallup points out that Pelosi was viewed favorably by 26% of Americans, a higher score than either Boehner or McConnell. The weak leaders are also nipping at the heels of highly unpopular leftist and then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who in October of last year was viewed favorably by only 21% of Americans.
Cruz’s powerful smackdown of establishment elitist McConnell last month included pointing out that the results in the Senate under McConnell’s leadership have not been one iota different than if Democrat Harry Reid were still in charge:
“There is a profound disappointment among the American people because we keep winning elections and then we keep getting leaders who don’t do anything they promised.
The American people were told ‘if only we have a Republican majority in the House, things will be different.’
Well, in 2010 the American people showed up in enormous numbers and we got a Republican majority in the House — and very little changed. Then the American people were told, ‘you know, the problem is the Senate. If only we get a Republican majority in the Senate and retire Harry Reid as majority leader, then things will be different.’
Well, in 2014 the American people rose up in enormous numbers, voted to do exactly that. We’ve had a Republican majority in both houses of Congress now for about six months.
What has that majority done?
First thing we did, in December, is we came back and passed a $1 trillion ‘cromnibus’ plan filled with pork and corporate welfare. That was the very first thing we did. Then this Republican majority voted to fund Obamacare, voted to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. And then leadership rammed through the confirmation of Loretta lynch as Attorney General.
Madam President, which of those decisions would be one iota different if Harry Reid were still majority leader? Not a one. Not a one. This Senate operates exactly the same — the same priorities.
“It’s not that this majority doesn’t get things done. It does get things done, but it listens to one and only one voice,” Cruz said on the Senate Floor during his epic speech. “That is the voice of the Washington Cartel, of the lobbyists on K Street, of the big money and big corporations,” he asserted.
