GOP Senate Leader McConnell has been the single most unpopular congressional leader for more than a year


Thread by Rich Baris

While DEM @SpeakerPelosi consistently has the highest “very unfavorable” rating, GOP Senate @LeaderMcConnell has been the single most unpopular congressional leader for more than a year.
Nobody likes him. GOP voters can’t stand him.
This is his highest favorable yet.

Last month, only 10.4% of Republicans had a “very favorable” opinion of GOP @LeaderMcConnell. The month prior, only 6.7% of Republicans had a “very favorable” opinion of him.
Independents hate his guts.
He is the single biggest obstacle for the party obtaining new coalitions

What’s the major difference between an unpopular DEM leader such as @SpeakerPelosi and @LeaderMcConnell?
Meaning, why doesn’t she hurt DEMS as much as she did, despite such a high “very unfavorable”?

Her own party doesn’t hate her guts like Republicans hate McConnell.

In the Fall 2021, more Democrats actually had a “very favorable” opinion of @LeaderMcConnell than Republicans!
No kidding. In fact, it’s often very close because that’s how unpopular he is among voters he purports to represent.
Even Republicans in his own state dislike him.

Now, it’s fair to ask: “How does @LeaderMcConnell keep getting re-elected if he’s so unpopular with voters”?
Pre-Trump, he survived B/C he’s a very dirty fighter.
But he would’ve lost this time if Trump didn’t save him. Ditto @LindseyGrahamSC.

Yet, they backstab him.
That said, Donald Trump is not a politician and has yet to learn what Republican voters already know, which is this:
Don’t ever expect anything else from these politicians. GOP pols like McConnell and Graham have been backstabbing voters for years.
And they hate them for it.
Lastly, it’s worth pointing out @LeaderMcConnell and Senate Republicans owed their majority to Donald Trump from the jump in 2016.
He later singlehandedly saved it in 2018.
Republicans lost it in Georgia the minute they no longer had him to lean on.
B/C they’re losers.

More than a year is a yuge understatement.
What is he doing about Pelosi’s spies breaking into GOP offices, or going through their mail?
Call on her capitol police? The DOJ? Oh yeah that would be call the perps, is he digging into who gives them the marching orders? Spying in an election year is allowed if you are not Republican.

McConnell is a traitor. He can not be in leadership when republicans take the senate. Time to ditch Mitch.

“Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party” – Trump hammers McConnell after condemning RNC
Trump writes:

Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party, and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters. He did nothing to fight for his constituents and stop the most fraudulent election in American history. And he does nothing to stop the lawless Biden Administration, the invasion of our Borders, rising Inflation, Unconstitutional mandates, the persecution of political opponents, fact finding on the incompetent Afghanistan withdrawal, the giving away our energy independence, etc., which is all because of the fraudulent election. Instead, he bails out the Radical Left and the RINOs.

If Mitch would have fought for the election, like the Democrats would have if in the same position, we would not be discussing any of the above today, and our Country would be STRONG and PROUD instead of weak and embarrassed.”

Well, McConnell is a disappointment. We expect more of him. Pelosi… who expects anything from her other than what they get? She’s a hateful, disruptive, obstructive, unconstitutional, corrupt liar that hates this country and, sadly, that’s what her constituents expect.

Embracing the Trump Doctrine equals support and acceptance. EVERY Republican running in Texas touts supporting Trump or being supported by Trump… even Preston Bush, GW’s grandson running for Attorney General, is promising to “finish Trump’s wall”. Trump is popular because Trump’s policies and accomplishments are popular. Especially in Texas, securing the southern border is VERY important because we are the recipients of 2.4 million illegal immigrants with 20% of them infected with COVID.

Liberals everywhere just laugh off the wide open southern border while they try to court Texas and turn it blue, but even Latino’s don’t appreciate being flooded with illegal immigrants because… SURPRISE!… they love this country and don’t care to see it trampled under wards of the cartels.

Sorry, leftists, but Trump is popular, he was popular enough to win in 2020 (sans fraud) and, thanks to idiot Biden’s abysmal performance, is more popular now than ever. When other Republicans figure his formula out (be competent, put the US before all else, don’t let yourself become beholden to lobbyists and interests, and F**K the corrupt, lying liberal media), Republicans will have a winning streak unknown in history.

Time to Cashier McConnell

The Senate Republican leader is positioning his party to condemn itself for a protest objecting to an election that has, for 71 percent of Republicans, the obvious appearance of corruption.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) (born 1942) on Tuesday attacked the Republican National Committee for censuring two house Republicans, Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) for their cooperation with the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack.

McConnell in effect adopted the position of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) (born 1940), which is that the events of January 6, 2021 constitute an attempted coup d’etat. “It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election from one administration to the next,” McConnell said.

The half-naked man in the buffalo hat howling from the well of the Senate is not just Pelosi’s Reichstag Fire. It is not just Joe Biden’s (born 1942) Reichstag Fire. It’s McConnell’s Reichstag Fire. It’s the entire 80-something, I-am-never-letting-go-of-power crowd’s Reichstag Fire.

Indeed, for the second time in less than five years, an 80-something Republican senator has directly attacked his own party’s base, with venal dishonesty, on a matter so fundamental that without it the party might as well not exist.

Let me back up for a minute.  

Former Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) (born 1936) narrowly won reelection in 2016. An explicit campaign promise to support the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act got him over the top. Yet in July 2017, McCain voted “no” on the repeal of ACA, dramatically making the Roman pollice verso gesture. McCain, who was 80 at the time and had just had brain surgery to treat terminal cancer, betrayed his promise. Within a year McCain had passed away, and any chance of repeal of ACA had also died with the loss of the Republican-controlled Senate. 

McConnell is positioning his party, which he leads in the Senate, to condemn itself for a riot that grew out of a protest objecting to an election that had, and still has for 71 percent of Republicans, the obvious appearance of corruption directed against his own party. McConnell is endorsing the opposition’s propaganda that the election was not only not problematic but pristine

The Republican leader is further endorsing the J6 committee, which includes just two Republicans, each of whom were hand-picked by Pelosi, because before any investigation they had aligned with Democrats. The result is the deadly serious J6 committee has no deliberative means of operating. It has no adversarial component to test the truth of its claims. 

“Truth is great and will prevail,” Thomas Jefferson observed, “. . . unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons.” This is what the J6 committee is all about: preventing a debate. McConnell’s attack on his own party is procedurally incompetent no less than it is dangerous.

The J6 committee is using its legislative subpoena powers to end run the Fourth Amendment as a companion tactic to the Justice Department’s use of pre-trial detention to end run the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments. Both are tactics to intimidate, cow, and in some cases imprison McConnell’s own party and its base.

In attacking his own, McConnell trades on the political capital he has accumulated as a result of his reputation for ruthless tactics—he is known as “Murder Turtle” for his cold scalpel and hatchet procedural deadliness—with respect to the appointment of judges. One is tempted to ask, what is the value of that? Are there really no others who could do that? Indeed, there are. And, more importantly, where are those judges now? Nowhere. 

The stacking of the bench with a presidential term’s worth of careerist “conservatives” who got where they were by avoiding risk all their lives has done nothing to impede the evisceration of the Bill of Rights following January 6, to impede the Biden Administration’s lawless facilitation of illegal immigration, or to restore the separation of powers.

McConnell’s historical analogue is Paul von Hindenburg (born 1847). Hindenburg was the very old, highly respected old-regime president of Weimar Germany. In 1933, in response to the Reichstag Fire, Hindenburg, at Hitler’s request, signed the Reichstag Fire Decree suspending German civil liberties. Within a year Hindenburg was dead, along with any remaining opposition to Hitler. 

McConnell needs to be cashiered by the GOP. They will have to live without his “tactical genius” soon enough, anyway. And like McCain before him, he’s attacking the fundamental causes of the party from within for reasons that seem, for lack of a better word, demented.

Time to Cashier McConnell › American Greatness (

Early indications are the Republicans can expect to take back the Senate in the 2022 midterms. In conjunction with that it is more than likely the House with also be in Republican majority. Expectations are anywhere from a 60-100 seat increase. Now that McCarthy has come out in support of Mcconnells statement regarding January 6, neither of them should hold any leadership position.

The new Congressional majorities need to be led by MAGA and America first leaders. No more of the namby pamby “get along to go along” crowd. In order to reform the culture in DC, the swamp and all of the bureaucratic critters must be removed.
