A new poll warns the Republican Congressional leadership that a revolt is brewing against them among President Trump’s base.

In a poll of 1,000 likely voters released Thursday by the Center for Security Policy and the Eagle Forum, respondents said by more than a four to one margin it was “time for new Republican leadership in Congress, which would mean replacing Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan.”

Sixty-three percent of all respondents said it was time for new Republican leadership in Congress, while only 15 percent said it was not time for new Republican leadership. Twenty-two percent were unsure.

Republicans were even harder on their own party’s Congressional leaders than Democrats or Independents.

Sixty-eight percent of Republicans said it was time for new Republican leadership in Congress, while only 14 percent wanted to keep the current leadership. Sixty-three percent of Democrats and 57 percent of Independents said it was time for new Republican leadership.

Disapproval of Republican leadership was high among those who voted for President Trump in 2016, and that dissatisfaction could be very bad news for Republican members of Congress who fail to back the Trump agenda, as a number of questions about specific policies revealed.

A whopping 69 percent of those who voted for President Trump in 2016 said they would be less likely to re-elect their Member of Congress who “Has increased the debt ceiling to spend more money the government doesn’t have, without any new constraints on future spending.” Only 20 percent of Trump voters said they would be more likely to re-elect such a Member of Congress.
