New poll - McConnell and McCarthy not liked by GOP base

A new poll by Axios - Survey Monkey among Republicans shows that the top Republican leaders in both the Senate and House are not popular among the Republican base. Both polled "underwater" with more Republicans viewing them unfavorably than favorable.
Mitch McConnell is better known among Republicans, and polled higher unfavorability. 55% of Republican voters viewed McConnell unfavorably compared to 18% who view him favorably.  22% did not know enough about him to give an opinion and 5% dod mpt answer.  That put McConnell "underwater" by a whopping 37 points.
The lesser known McCarthy had 43% say they did not know enough about him to render an opinion and 5%did not answer.  Of those with an opinion on McCarthy, 30% view him unfavorabley and 21% favorably, making him 9 points underwater.
The poll was conducted last week among 1,024 Republican voters and has a margin of error of 4%.
When will the Republicans in Congress elect leaders Republican voters can trust?

We now know enough about McConnel to know he is a first class RINO. He helped defeat conservative Roy Moore n Alabama. He did not stand up with Trump on several occasions. he needs to go. McCarthy is somewhat of a political idiot. He talks when he should be listening or when there is no need to say anything. Please do not be forgiving toward these people. They deserve to go.
