From Pew Research Center: GOP congressional leaders face strong disapproval among Tea Party Republicans. Only 27% of Conservative /Tea Party Republicans approve of the job Republican leaders in Congress are doing; 71% disapprove. This is the result of a 15 point fall in approval since February of this year. There has been no similar decline among Republicans who do not agree with the Tea Party.
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Sept. 4-8 among 1,506 adults, finds that just 24% of the public approves of Republican leaders’ job performance, while somewhat more (33%) approve of the job of Democratic congressional leaders.
There is no internal ideological divide within the Democratic Party.
