Over Half Of Americans Reject House GOP’s Extreme & Dangerous Agenda In Poll


Well, it doesn’t seem as though most Americans support the general direction that House Republicans are taking with their policy agenda and various investigative hearings, which have ranged in topic from imaginary censorship of conservative viewpoints to a non-existent crisis at the southern border that obscures, in its imagining, what’s actually happening there.

Recently released polling from Marquette University shows a solid majority of respondents disapproving of the performance of the Republican majority, led at present by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, the California Congressman who struggled to secure that leadership post and is now generally indebted to extremist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who prominently supported him during that rhetorical battle over the chamber’s top spot. Lumping those expressing either strong or a more moderated level of approval into the same categories, 58 percent of respondents either strongly or somewhat disapproved of the GOP’s conduct in the House majority, while 41 percent approved.

The numbers, it’s substantive to note, were pretty close to the levels of approval and disapproval for the Democratic majority currently holding the Senate, which added a seat in the 2022 midterm elections thanks to the victory in Pennsylvania of John Fetterman over reality TV star-turned-Trump endorsee Mehmet Oz, aka Dr. Oz. And on yet another front, the numbers were also pretty close to the results when respondents were asked whether they disapproved or approved of Biden’s handling of his job. There’s apparently a rather general malaise among the general respondents, because all of these figures were also close to the levels of favorability or the lack thereof for Trump. That measurement is distinct from levels of job approval and instead reflects whether participants either had a favorable or unfavorable view of the given political figure.
