Gravis Poll: Half of GOP Voters in Boehner's District Welcome Primary Challenge to Speaker ^ | 9/9/13

Winter Springs, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2013 -- Gravis Poll Give Boehner a Wake-Up Call More than 1,120 Ohio voters responded to a survey conducted by Human Events and Gravis Marketing on September 4th. Half of the respondents reported they would welcome a challenger to House Speaker John Boehner in the 2014 congressional race. Respondents were registered Republican voters living in Boehner's district.

Doug Kaplan, CEO at Gravis Marketing, a non-partisan research firm, reports the survey reached about twice as many voters than are normally polled in a single district, giving the poll results a margin of error of just two percent.

Key findings include:

Almost two in three (65 percent) want the Speaker to take steps to defund Obamacare even though it could lead to a government shutdown.

The same number want Boehner to call for a special inquiry into the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi.

Some 45 percent reported Boehner was not effective in advancing conservative issues, while 22 percent disagreed.

On issues of taxing and spending 48 percent reported the Speaker is not doing enough to rein in the economy.

The poll covered a range of topics designed to reveal voter sentiment on topics ranging from Illegal immigration – a leftist group known as “Undocumented Ohio” won state approval in August for taxpayers to subsidize illegal immigrants' college costs – to opinions on providing military support to the Syrian rebels. On that topic 54 percent opposed U.S. involvement, while 29 percent were undecided and 17 percent were in favor.

If that number shows up in multiple polls, that’s really interesting news. It shows the degree our voters are fed up with our party.

Obama’s interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.

Obama’s interest in bombing non-enemy Syria has everything to do with creating a long-lasting, controversial, DISTRACTION for Congress in order to keep Congress from defunding Obama”care”/Boehnerkare.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rice’s fake Video story.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for distracting Congress until Obama”care”/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obama’s “Crossing HIS personal Red Line” distraction speech.

Obama speaks only for Obama, not the US Federal Government or America.



“Jellyfish Spine” Boehner as Speaker of the House is essential to Obama’s continued unchallenged destruction of the US Constitution.

Nothing will change as long as cave-in artists Boehner and Cantor are in leadership roles in the US House of Representatives.

If Boehner is replaced as Speaker with a fighter such as Col. Allen West, then the Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, can be quickly issued.

The problem is not with Obama, as he is just doing what Communist Tyrants are trained to do.

The problem is not with Boehner, as he loves to lose and wallow in the disgrace of being the worst Speaker of the House, EVER.

The problem lies with our sorry, spineless, RINOs in the House who refuse to replace Boehner with a proven fighter.

BTW, the members of the House can choose anybody to be their Speaker, even if that person is not a current Member of the House.

Tick-tock, long-time House RINOs, tick-tock - - - - .
