A new poll by Democratic pollster Patrick Caddell shows that Republican Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) is no favorite of Republican voters.

After four years of watching and rooting for Boehner to succeed in fighting to limit the size and scope of government, fully 60 percent of Republicans surveyed want someone new to be Speaker.

To make matters worse for Boehner, 64 percent viewed him as being “ineffective in opposing Obama’s agenda.” A resounding repudiation to the person most associated nationally with leading Republicans during the Obama presidency.

What is almost as amazing is that the Speaker is barely right-side up on the favorable/unfavorable test among Republican voters, scoring a meager 43 percent to 34 percent edge among those who should be his staunchest supporters.
