(PartiallyPolitics.com) Most Republican voters have said that the party should move on from Ronna McDaniel and try to find a new chairperson for the Republican National Committee (RNC).
According to a survey by Convention of States Action conducted by the Trafalgar Group in late December around 73 percent of Republican voters said that they believed someone new should lead the RNC next month. Of those surveyed, around 6 percent believed that McDaniel should be reelected for a fourth term. Twenty-one percent of respondents were unsure of whether or not McDaniel should be reelected. The poll was published by the Hill.
Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States, said that it is clear that voters are looking for the GOP to be held more accountable for their failures and that the only way to do so is by electing someone new in leadership positions. He further noted that Grassroots activists are also aware that the current leadership is not focused on conservative principles or winning a majority but instead they are focused on keeping themselves in power.
The results of the poll all clearly show that many are not fond of McDaniel’s leadership of the RNC which is why is currently facing the first real challenge since she took the national party apparatus in 2017. Despite the growing number of conservatives who are asking for McDaniel to be replaced, she still has the support of most RNC members which is all that is required in order to win the reelection.
McDaniel’s critics have also been widely referring to the GOP’s underwhelming performance as further evidence of McDaniel failing in her position. The GOP did not only not manage to win the required Senate seats in order to flip the upper chamber, but they also failed to win the House with a large majority. In fact, since McDaniel took over the RNC the Republican party has only suffered losses, losing the House in 2018, and the White House and Senate two years later.
