POLL: Funding Obama’s Amnesty Could Destroy GOP

“The GOP leadership, the lawyers, the lobbyists, the consultant class of the Republican party, and all the big donors don’t understand that these people are angry. … They are saying that John Boehner doesn’t care about them, and all he cares about is the special interests. I’ve never seen anything like this in the base of a party. And that is why the analogy to the Whigs is not so far-fetched.” Pollster Pat Caddell.

The third installment of a poll of Republican voters released Monday shows how potentially deadly GOP voters’ anger is running at the GOP establishment in Washington, D.C. as the party stands ready to control both houses of Congress for the first time since the 2006 election debacle swept Republicans from sole control of Washington.

Commenting on the poll his firm conducted of GOP voters, Pat Caddell told Breitbart Sirius XM Radio Sunday that he was stunned by the poll’s findings, adding (without attributing it to a specific poll question) that a conservative estimate shows one-fourth to one-third of Republicans could quit the party.

““The alienation among Republican voters is so high,” says Caddell, that conservatively “a quarter to one-third of the Republican party are hanging by a thread from bolting.””

As reported Sunday by The Gateway Pundit, the previous release of the poll shows GOP voters do not trust nor support for reelection to their leadership posts House Speaker John Boehner and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Only sixteen percent support them as a team. Individual support for each leader is in the mid –twenties.

Republicans funding amnesty could destroy the party on Capitol Hill. Eighty-four percent of GOP voters said they would not be likely to reelect their Republican Congressman if he or she voted to fund Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Nearly two-thirds were “much less likely” to vote to reelect.

Seventy-one percent want Congress to pass a law barring Obama from spending taxpayer money on his amnesty with fifty-nine percent strongly in favor.

Also in the poll released Monday are numbers confirming the staunch opposition to Obamacare by Republican voters.

Eighty-seven percent oppose Obamacare with seventy-percent wanting Obamacare completely repealed. Only four percent said Obamacare is “working well.”

Caddell, speaking on Breitbart Sirius XM, warned Republicans face possible extinction as a party.

“The GOP leadership, the lawyers, the lobbyists, the consultant class of the Republican party, and all the big donors don’t understand that these people are angry. … They are saying that John Boehner doesn’t care about them, and all he cares about is the special interests. I’ve never seen anything like this in the base of a party. And that is why the analogy to the Whigs is not so far-fetched.”

The People’s Poll by Caddell Associates and EMC Research was taken Christmas week of 602 Republicans and 2014 GOP voters (margin of error 4 percent).
