With the media quick to report on dissent within the Republican party, it is easy to forget that dissatisfaction among Democrats with their party’s leadership at the national level is at least as intense.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are far less popular among Democratic Capitol Hill staffers than Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell are among Republicans.
The Daily Mail is reporting on the results of a confidential poll of Capitol Hill insiders conducted by Punchbowl News.
62 percent of Democratic insiders think that Schumer and Pelosi should go regardless of the Democrats do in the 2022 midterm election and 79 percent think that they should go if the Democrats don’t do well.
In contrast, 46 percent of Republican staffers want McCarthy and McConnell to stay regardless of the outcome in 2022 and 72 percent want them to stay even if the Republicans do poorly in the midterms.
Survey results appear below.
The resignation of key staffers from Kamala Harris’s office is another indication that all is not peaches and cream among Democratic staffers in the executive branch either. Staffers describe working with Ms. Harris describe her bullying as “soul destroying” and that she “fails to read briefing materials, then lashes out at others when she’s unprepared.”
The findings of the survey and the turnover in the Vice President’s office starkly contrasts with the narrative from the corporate media which generally focuses on internal machinations within the Republican party.
Here at GOUSA, we believe that elected officials should be working to provide Americans with the opportunity to achieve a better life for ourselves, our families and our communities. We believe that the voters are more united than divided on critical issues.
We also believe in political change. Politicians who aren’t serving the interests of people need to be replaced with those who will. The evidence above suggests that change is sorely needed in both parties.
