In a new Rusmussen poll, just two percent of Republican voters view Rush Limbaugh as the leader of their party. Only five percent name John McCain or Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, and a scant one percent give the honor to Sarah Palin. Meanwhile, Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell and his House counterpart, John Boehner, each got the nod from less than one-half of one percent!
Not surprisingly for the party that does not control the White House or either House of Congress, a whopping 68% of Republicans told Rasmussen that their party has no clear leader. That contrasts with the 66% of Democrats who view President Obama as the leader of their party.
So folks know what's really up, even as pols and pundits continue to squabble about the roll of the rotund big mouth from Palm beach.
If this story is right, the White House may finally be recognizing that that petty Limbaugh scrap could boomerang.
What's your opinion? Who's in charge of the GOP? Anyone? Post a comment.
