Poll: Half OF GOP Voters In Boehner’s District Welcome Primary Challenge To Speaker

John Boehner SC Poll: Half OF GOP Voters in Boehners District Welcome Primary Challenge to Speaker



A Sept. 4 Human Events/Gravis poll of more than 1,000 Republican primary voters in his congressional district, Ohio-8, shows 50 percent of them would welcome a primary challenge to Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio).

The poll, which dealt with issues facing Capitol Hill as the calendar collapses on unfinished business and new urgencies, was conducted byHuman Events with Gravis, a Florida-based pollster, which has a margin of error of 2 percent. The poll had a sample population more than twice the size of a typical poll in a single congressional district, said Doug Kaplan, the founding owner of Gravis.

The poll also showed:

  • 17 percent of the voters support military action in support of the Syrian rebels;
  • 65 percent want Speaker Boehner to push to defund Obamacare “even if it means a government shutdown;”
  • 65 percent want Speaker Boehner to call a special committee to investigate the Benghazi incident;
  • 48 percent believe Speaker Boehner is not doing enough to lower taxes and spending.

Matthew B. “Matt” Kibbe, the president and CEO of FreedomWorks, the Washington-based training, logistics and policy support organization for Tea Party groups, said the poll reflects Boehner’s disconnect with conservative voters.
