POLL: 73% Want Mitch McConnell Removed from Leadership

During the last election cycle, Republican voters made it quite clear that they did not want Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to remain in leadership.

McConnell literally laughed in our faces.

When Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) ran against him, McConnell laughed again because, as he stated, "I have the votes," literally daring someone to take him on.

The Numbers Don't Lie

We the People did not like Mitch before that, and we like him less after he missed time in the Senate from a bad fall, as well as having started at the cameras like a deer in the headlights twice in about a month.

Now the people are making it crystal clear that we do not want him in leadership.

A new Rasmussen survey found that 74 percent of Republican voters want him removed from leadership.

Think about this… only 73 percent of Democrats want him removed, so more Republicans want him to step down than Democrats, reported the Washington Examiner.

The last episode was explained away by doctors as possibly being a result of dehydration.

McConnell's fellow Kentuckian, Senator Rand Paul, is not buying the excuse.

He stated, "I practiced medicine for 25 years, and it doesn't look like dehydration. … To me, it looks like a focal neurologic event. That doesn't mean it's incapacitating, doesn't mean you can't serve, but it means that somebody ought to wake up and say, 'Wow, this looks like a seizure.'"

McConnell, if you can believe it, is more underwater than Joe Biden in favorability rating, with the survey having him 29 points underwater at 31-60.

This time of year, Senate leadership is supposed to be on the road, non-stop, when they are not in DC.

It is McConnell's job to help identify candidates, raise money for them, and drum up support to ensure they win their elections.

Does anyone in their right mind believe that McConnell is up for that job right now?

But the polls don't matter because McConnell has been defiant, saying just the other day that he will finish out his term as well as his leadership term.

Cocaine Mitch is, sadly, not going anywhere.
