POLL: MAJORITY WANT BENGHAZI SELECT COMMITTEE

Matthew Boyle

A poll released by Democratic pollster Pat Caddell and Republican pollster John McLaughlin shows that a vast majority of American voters want a special select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal. However, House Speaker John Boehner is denying them a shot at it.

Secure America Now president Allen Roth, whose organization commissioned the poll, points to it as a major reason why he signed a letter to Boehner sent Monday that demands he stop obstructing the investigation and install a select committee.

"In a recent national poll, conducted by Democrat Pat Caddell and Republican John McLaughlin, 62% of Americans say it is important that Congress create a special committee to get to the truth about Benghazi,” Roth told Breitbart news in an email over the weekend before the letter became public...

... More specifically, 83 percent of GOP voters and 58 percent of independents support a select committee, while 50 percent of Democratic voters oppose a select committee. A majority of self-identified moderate voters, 53 percent, want a select committee as well....

They need to drag the fag from the New Yawk Slimes up there also and ask him who paid him for his bull****, Benghazi Youtube video story.

The GOP is too worried about being re-elected.

I want a Select Committee on Benghazi. What’s the harm, Mister Speaker?

If one assumes this poll is anywhere close to the truth, that is a staggering number. Half of Dems alone is significant. But all groups together is some serious poop.

I don’t know John McLaughlin but Pat Caddel has certainly earned my trust and respect over the years.

The majority gets what it wants, unless the majority wants something that’s at variance with what the NYC/DC elites want.

Yeah well America didn’t want Obamacare either and it was jammed down anyway.

Here’s some more data from the poll...

I’d like to find the full poll results, including cross tabs. But even without that, it’s damning and makes Boehner and the GOP leadership look like crap for not going ahead with a select committee. A pox on them if they keep stonewalling.

Same here. For a Dem the guy (Pat C) is as straight up as it gets. The only issue I have with him is why he refuses to tell the party to ESAD. But as long as he keeps doing what he does, I’ll live with it.

We are at a crossroads. The Uniparty vs. America. I know a lot of people want to believe the GOP is still Reagean’s party. I was a Pubbie for many years and proud of it. But it is what it is.

The GOP of today will side with Dems as they always do. And Cruz and a handful of good people left there will not stop them. A pox on them indeed.

This, to me, proves that both sides are in cahoots and that they are hiding some major BS from the American People.

I can’t believe after all the hell we’re going through with this Kenyan Marxist dooshbag that people are actually seriously considering that absolute psychopath Hitlery for next POTUS. Like my brother said - If Hitlery became our next POTUS it would be like trying to save the Titanic from sinking by nuking it. Abso-freakin-lutely 1000% If she wins we are dead dead dead. It will be beyond the final nail in the coffin. We’ll have people trying to sneak over to MEXICO looking for work!

And she could be easily blown out of the water by anyone wishing to ignore the GOP telling them to shut up. Merely showing her lack of accomplishment from Ark to Bhenghazi and refusing to cower would do it.

Look at this crap, how do these people get through life with barely enough brains to keep their heart and lungs functioning? Do they have to be escorted everywhere to prevent them from walking into walls? Walking off cliffs? Does the TV show "The Walking dead" regularly cast them as zombies?

How many times can it be said. Boehner is one of the crooks. He works for the left.

Why is Speaker Boehner the main proponent of the Benghazi Coverup?

All Boehner had to do was to appoint a Benghazi Special Prosecutor any time after 11-12-12.

The reason that Boehner has not done so is now becoming obvious - - - - .

Yeah that’s another big concern, that the RINO party is going to again nominate another RINO after again working in concert with the Marxist press to destroy the credibility of the conservative candidates with lies and garbage ala Herman Caine. Then when the RINO is nominated all he is going to talk about is “Jobs Jobs Jobs” only he will pronounce it “Jabs” “What we need is Jabs Jabs Jabs” Meanwhile the opponent is lying sack of Marxist shet with terror connections and absolutely no qualifications other than being basically a telemarketer with a fake name and a questionable birth record, but lets just talk about “Jabs Jabs Jabs”

Yes you are right. I decided this when I saw a conservative host on FOX ask someone on the investigating committee where BO was that night and he danced and changed the subject. I knew then that it was all for naught. I can't remember the guest , but I think it was Trey Gowdy. Very disappointing. They know what he was doing and where he was, but aren't revealing for some reason. Obama is the CIC for heaven's sake and we the people can't know what he was doing.

This could be depressing to normal people. But thank God we’re not. We must continue the fight on this.

I often say I wish I could come back in 500 years to read any history books written on this era. We always look at 30s era Germany and ask WTF was wrong with the gen pub. I suspect that assuming there is intelligent life remaining in 500 years (not a given at this rate) they will say much worse about the idiocy on the left and supposed right.

Of course Idiocracy comes to mind and they could be trying to get Brawndo to help plants grow too...

Give him a break, he is all tied up trying to stop the IRS from targeting Tea Party groups. </s>

Allen West is right. Boehner is helping cover it up.

I fear Trey may be a Lindsy Graham clone. Most here do not remember how Graham became so popular that he was elected to the Senate.

Good luck because that would mean the GOP would actually have to do something.
