Most Republicans Approve Of Kevin McCarthy Despite Rocky Process In Vote For Speaker

Kevin McCarthy may have had a rocky start to becoming Speaker of the House but it doesn’t seem to matter now.

Just weeks later, his approval rating among Republicans is pretty solid.

It makes sense. He is keeping the promises he made and so far, people are pretty pleased about it.

Republicans are much more optimistic about McCarthy’s ability to be an effective Speaker than Democrats or independents. Pollsters found 44 percent of Republicans expect him to be effective in his position, while only 19 percent of Democrats and 15 percent of independents said the same.

If McCarthy stays on the path he is currently on, he will have a very effective Speakership.

All McCarthy has to do is not betray conservatives.

Republican voters will hold him accountable if he does.
