The Pew Research Center poll below shows that Americans are unhappy with the GOP led Congress. Americans are disgusted as Republican congressional leaders have a 22% overall approval rating.
The poll shows this anger is bi-partisan. Only 41% of Republicans approve of the performance of the GOP congressional leadership.
It’s Obvious that congressional Republicans are not advancing a conservative agenda or stopping President Obama. Almost every Republican congressional candidate campaigned against Obamacare and the President’s executive amnesty for five million illegal aliens, Congress voted to fund both programs.
The GOP leadership in Congress, especially Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner, are establishment Republicans who have been in office way too long. They are opposed to the Tea Party and true conservatives and have no interest in real reform or following the wishes of grassroots Republicans. This betrayal of conservatism is reflected in the Pew poll.
Nothing has been accomplished except the Keystone Pipeline bill, which the President vetoed, and the House passed bill ending abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy. On almost everything else, there has been a lot of arm waving and talk, but no action.
The Senate approved the radical nomination of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General and just gave Obama a major victory by approving legislation giving him more power to enact trade deals.
If another establishment Republican is nominated and shoved down the throats of the grassroots Republicans, millions of conservatives will be ticked and will leave the GOP by the thousands. Republicans may again lose the White House. SourceNegative Views on GOP Led Congress by Barbara Espinosa
