Poll: Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell staying on as GOP leaders less popular than violent Antifa

Sept. 7, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to a poll by John McLaughlin showing Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are less popular than violent, left-wing Antifa:

“A just released poll by respected pollster John McLaughlin shockingly shows that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell’s Congressional leadership is less popular with voters than the left-wing, violent Antifa. Ryan and McConnell’s staying on as GOP leaders polled at just 15 percent, while masked thugs in the street were supported by 21 percent. Equally shocking, a higher percentage of Democrats supported Ryan and McConnell staying on as leaders than Republican respondents, demonstrating the gap between the establishment GOP and the base that elected them. While Antifa has nowhere to go but down, as political violence is unacceptable in modern American society, the good news for Ryan and McConnell is that they have a pathway ahead. And that is by enacting the Trump agenda they ran on repealing Obamacare, reining in big government, cutting taxes and building the wall that was promised to be delivered with Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress.”
