New Poll: Conservatives Demand Honest, Open GOP Convention

Republican plans to manipulate a brokered convention in favor of an establishment candidate could split the GOP and destroy its chance to elect a president in 2016, according to a poll conducted by FedUp PAC.   

The possibility that GOP power brokers will find a way to use the rules to hijack the convention and ignore the RNCwill of the voters was a great concern for 82% and a concern for another 13%. 

The nomination of either Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio would cause 53% of conservatives to consider voting for a third-party candidate.  If Republican power brokers were to take advantage of a deadlocked convention to nominate Mitt Romney, 75% would oppose that move. 

Conservatives are so concerned about the secret December 7 meeting called by Reince Priebus to plan for a brokered convention that 72% want Priebus to resign as Chairman of the Republican National Committee.  87% labeled themselves as “very concerned” that “GOP leaders in Washington have too much influence on the selection of the Republican nominee.” 

An overwhelming 92% declared the importance of honoring “the primary and caucus elections of their state.”  In that vein, 80% hope for the repeal of the rule, adopted at the 2012 convention to protect Mitt Romney, prohibiting anyone to be placed in nomination unless he has a majority of the delegates in at least eight states. 

90% said they planned to vote in the primary or caucus of their state. 

FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization that wants constitutional conservatives to take over the GOP because Americans are fed up with the Republican establishment. It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
