Should John Boehner be the next speaker of the house?

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds a majority of GOP primary voters think Boehner and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell should lose their leadership posts. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say the congressional GOP needs new leadership.

Republicans are split on whether Boehner should win the Speaker's gavel if the GOP retakes control of the House this fall. Thirty-three percent say he should, while 34 percent say he shouldn't. Another 33 percent of GOP voters are undecided.

  • I've said it since 2008 elections. With the approval ratings congress had going in to the elections, NONE of them (D or R) should have kept their positions. That would have been a perfect time for both sides to find new leadership. Congress has such a bad approval rating, that when all is said and done, the four of them need to be replaced.

  • Public Policy does their surveys State by State, this was just Ohio.

    And yet, another pesky little fact sweet n sour leaves out. Yes he should be.

  • None of them should hold those roles considering all of them are leadership and they all did a horrible job. Isn't this a "vote them out" year? Shouldn't we have fresh blood running things for once?

    There are 100 senators, 5 open seats for retiring senators, 17 democratic and 14 republican senators up for re-election, Total 36 possible changes, that might not change the senate much.

  • If republicans win control, I agree, the speaker of the house shouldn't be Boehner, We need fresh new blood.
