74% of Republicans want Mitch McConnell to resign from leadership

In light of recent health concerns, a large majority of Republican voters believe that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) should resign from his leadership position in the Senate.

This information came out according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Monday, as Breitbart News reported.

The poll asked respondents:

Mitch McConnell is a Republican senator from Kentucky who serves as Senate Minority Leader.

Some Republicans have called on McConnell to resign his leadership position because of his health issues. Do you agree or disagree that Mitch McConnell should resign his position as Senate minority leader?

Seventy-four percent of Republican voters believe McConnell should resign as minority leader in the Senate, while only seventeen percent disagree. Seventy-three percent of Democrats were in agreement.

Forty-nine percent of those who said McConnell should resign vehemently agreed, with 25 percent "somewhat agreeing."

Only 34% of Republicans have a favorable opinion of McConnell, with 7% rating their opinion as "very favorable." 27 percent indicated they had a "somewhat favorable" opinion.

Twelve percent of Democrats had a "very favorable" opinion of McConnell, five points higher than the Republican percentage.

The poll surveyed 1,062 likely electors from September 3-5 with a three-point margin of error.

McConnell stated last week that he would not resign from his position despite having recently suffered a concussion and two subsequent incidents in which he appeared to pause.

McConnell stated, "I'm going to finish my term as leader and my term in the Senate."

McConnell, age 81, is the party leader with the longest tenure in Senate history. In November, he surmounted ten Republican "no" votes to remain minority leader, the highest number of "no" votes ever cast against a Senate leader.

Under McConnell's leadership in the Senate, the national debt has increased by nearly $20 trillion, illegal immigration has skyrocketed, and real earnings for American workers have not increased.

In addition, he was in power when Obamacare was enacted in 2010, Congress bailed out large banks in 2008, and social media companies censored users without consequence.

McConnell, firmly an octogenarian, suffered the above mentioned two incidents in recent weeks where he has "frozen" while on camera speaking to reporters. These incidents came after the aging Republican leader suffered a fall in Washington D.C. in March of this year after which he was diagnosed with a concussion.

Both of the lawmaker's "incidents" were played off as dehydration and tiredness by his staffers. The Congressional doctor issued a letter saying that McConnell's symptoms were consistent with the aftermath of a concussion.
