The American public doesn’t think a change in leadership by the Republicans in Congress will do much to bring real reform to the way Congress operates, but most still say they want John Boehner replaced as House speaker, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
Overall, disapproval of the current Republican leadership in Congress has risen from 67% in April to 74% now. Even among Republicans, just 37% approve of the things the GOP leadership has done. Among all adults, 62% say that a new Republican leadership team in Congress would not bring real reform to Congress. Republicans are the only group optimistic that new leadership could turn things around in Congress, 59% say so, including 65% of Republicans who support the tea party movement.
