As Congress gets ready to convene, a new poll shows a full 60 percent of Republican voters want Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, removed from his position as House speaker.
Boehner has lost the confidence of his own party voters, according to the telephone survey conducted Dec. 26-30 by pollster Pat Caddell on behalf of People’s Poll.
The national poll reveals that only 25 percent of GOP voters would vote to keep Boehner.
The official speaker’s election is scheduled for Jan. 6.
Asked if they believed Boehner has been ineffective at opposing Obama’s agenda, a full 64 percent of voters agreed.
