COSA poll finds most Republicans want RNC chair McDaniel replaced

Published in Blog on January 04, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel is projected to hold a fourth term as party chair, but new polling shows GOP voters don't want her leading the party any longer.   

According to a new Convention of States poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group, about 73 percent of Republicans would like to see a new chair of the party. 

The poll comes as McDaniel is expected to be reelected for another two years by RNC members this month.

“Voters believe the only way to hold the GOP accountable for its failures is to make way for new leadership," said COSA President Mark Meckler. "Grassroots activists have known for a long time that GOP leadership in Congress and at the RNC aren’t focused on fighting for conservative principles, or even winning a majority, but rather keeping themselves in power and funding the permanent political consultant class.” 

The poll also found about 63 percent of voters see the Republican Party and its congressional leadership as ineffective at getting Republican candidates elected in 2022. 

Republicans indicated they are less willing to donate to the party after what they saw in 2022. As an alternative, voters said they would be willing to donate money to conservative organizations that are working on organizing the grassroots, such as Convention of States Action. 

Leadership elections in the House are currently proving the Republican Party has split into two factions, and RNC oversight is a focal point in the power struggle.

McCarthy failed three rounds of voting in his bid for Speaker of the House on Tuesday which is the first time in 100 years that more than one round of voting has been required.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
