Akron, OH: Today, the Ohio TEA Party organization the We the People Convention, released the results of it’s Ohio state poll which was conducted on August 19, 2018. The poll surveyed a random sample of 614 Ohio Republicans to determine the level of support for Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan’s bid to become the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives.
The We the People Convention poll showed that 77.36% of Ohio Republicans believe that Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan should be elected as the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives by members of Congress. Congressman Steve Scalise from Louisiana received 14.98% of the vote and Congressmen Kevin McCarthy received 7.65% of the vote. More than 80% of Ohio Republican voters felt that Jordan would be the most supportive of President Trumps agenda.
The survey also found that 79.82% of Republican voters felt that the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee should endorse Jim Jordan for Speaker of the House at their State Central Committee meeting on September 7, 2018. A total of 73.19% of Republican voters felt the Ohio’s nine incumbent Republican Congressmen and six Republican candidates for Congress should also endorse Jim Jordan for Speaker out of loyalty to a fellow Ohioan and fellow member of Congress. A majority of 55.29% of Republican Voters said that it would affect their vote for members of Congress if they endorsed Jim Jordan before election day.
Tom Zawistowski, President of the We the People Convention said, “As President Trump saw first hand at the rally in Lewis Center, OH a few weeks back, and as this statewide polls shows, Jim Jordan is clearly the overwhelming choice of Ohio Republicans to be the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives. I would also point out that the TEA Party Patriots survey last week showed that 98.4% of TEA Party activist around the nation support Jordan for Speaker. The reasons are clear, we trust Jim Jordan as Speaker to restore regular order and allow the House to serve the people instead of special interests. We trust Jim Jordan to do what those we elect to office promised us they would do. We know that Jim Jordan will support the agenda the people elected President Trump to implement instead of obstructing the President every step of the way as has been the case under the current Speaker of the House. We are going to do everything in our power to encourage all Republican members of Congress to prove that they actually do support President Trump by electing a House Speaker who will work with the President every step of the way to Make America Great again.”
