Marjorie Taylor Greene says Kevin McCarthy ‘doesn’t have full support to be a speaker’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene insists: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy does not have the full support of House Republicans to run for president.

Republicans prefer to win Congressional majority next year as polls and recent realignments favor them leading the way from Democrats.

“We know Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn’t have the full support to be a speaker,” Greene said on Rep. Matt Gaetz.

“He doesn’t have the votes that there are, because there are many of us who are very unhappy about the Republicans not being held accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar and many others are just constantly accepting abuse by the Democrats.” she said in the episode that aired Thursday morning.

Both Greene and Gosar have been stripped of their committee duties for threatening Democrats.

Gosar was reprimanded this month for posting a manipulated anime cartoon in which he killed Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Greene was removed from her assignments after posting anti-Semitic and Islamophobic comments and sharing QAnon conspiracy theories.

McCarthy is under pressure to take action against members who used violent rhetoric amid a growing number of threats against lawmakers in the wake of the Jan. 6 Uprising in the Capitol.

But he shrugged off the matter at a news conference, saying they could expect to regain their committee positions if Republicans retake the House in the 2022 interim term.

However, when Gaetz asked Greene if she respected the incumbent Republican leadership, she was quick to voice her opposition.

“I can’t respect leadership that doesn’t hold people accountable, yet allows people like me, Paul Gosar, to be constantly trampled and mistreated, then throw us under the bus at the first chance. I’m really sick of it,” she said.

Greene’s spokesperson Nick Dyer explained in a statement: news weekDemocrats have consistently attacked Congressman Greene since she was sworn in on Jan. 3. Rep. Jimmy Gomez and more than 70 other Democrats have a bill to evict her. Not to mention the Democrats are destroying Congressional standards and voting to remove (Greene) from committees.”

The House minority group leader said on Thursday that Greene (left) and Gosar (right) would be reinstated in committee seats if the GOP recaptured the House in by-elections next year

Gomez filed a resolution to remove Greene from her seat, citing her previous social media posts calling for violence against Democrats and promoting extremist conspiracy theories. Seventy-three House Democrats have since joined the effort.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House of Representatives and former President Barak Obama, Gomez said in a statement early this year.

“Even her presence in office poses a direct threat to the elected officials and staff who serve our government,” Gomez continued.

“And it is with their security in mind, as well as the security of institutions and officials across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.”

But even if Greene is removed from office, Republicans will have the biggest lead in 40 years when it comes to voter preferences into the 2022 midterms, with a new poll showing that more than half of American voters are voting for the vote. prefers a Republican candidate.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll published this month found that 51 percent of the 882 registered voters surveyed would support a GOP candidate in their district in the midterm elections if held today, while only 41 percent say that they would support a Democrat.

In the telephone survey, registered voters were asked, “If the US House of Representatives elections were held today, would you vote for (the Democratic candidate) or (the Republican candidate) in your congressional district?”

Four percent said they would not vote for Republican or Democrat, another 4 percent said they have no opinion, and the remaining 1 percent fall into the “other” category.

This poll shows the GOP has the biggest lead over its Democratic counterparts in four decades — since polls started asking the question in November 1981.

Republicans leading Democrats in this category have only ever featured nine times in the 110 polls conducted with the question.

It’s also only the second time that the benefit has been significant – beyond the margin of error. In January 2002, the GOP was seven points ahead of the Democrats.

Otherwise, Democrats have consistently outnumbered Republicans in the nationwide voter preference survey.

This month, Republicans added 13 House Democrats to their target list for next year’s midterm elections after a come-from-behind victory in the Virginia governor’s race and a too close to call contest in New Jersey.

They hope Glenn Youngkin’s victory over Terry McAuliffe in a state that President Biden won by 10 percentage points a year ago shows that they are on track to retake the House in 2022 and oust Nancy Pelosi as Speaker.
