Most voters consider Republicans want new management in Congress post-midterms, a Conference of States Motion/Trafalgar Group survey discovered.
The survey, taken roughly per week after the midterm election, which noticed Republicans taking again the Home and Democrats retaining the Senate, requested, “After the outcomes of the 2022 midterm elections do you suppose Republicans want new management in Congress?”

“Now I’m not a fan of McConnell and I’m a fan of Rick Scott, and you’ve got others in there that will be excellent,” he added.
Total, 37 voted for McConnell, and ten voted towards. As Breitbart Information reported, “The votes towards McConnell mark the primary time he has acquired a ‘no’ vote as chief, an indication the Republican Get together has begun to show towards his institution agenda.
