The GOP has been under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks, after its Senate leader, Mitch McConnell, announced a plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
The Senate’s tax bill is being negotiated and has not yet been passed, and Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has been at odds with President Donald Trump and some GOP senators who are pushing for a larger tax cut.
While Trump has not publicly supported McConnell, his approval rating is at its lowest level since November.
But while he is widely disliked, the GOP’s popularity has soared in recent years, according to Gallup, with Republicans currently the third-most popular political party in the country.
But the latest poll finds that even though Republicans’ approval ratings have grown, they are not as popular as Democrats.
Only 24 percent of Americans approve of the job McConnell is doing as majority leader, according the poll.
That compares to 59 percent for Democrats and 58 percent for Independents.
The poll was conducted by the University of Maryland’s Center for Politics.
In an interview with The Hill, Miller said the GOP has a lot of problems in the Senate, including “a dysfunctional leadership team that doesn’t know how to lead.”
“The president has gotten to be so popular in this country that even he can’t say anything that’s not totally politically correct,” Miller said.
“He gets to make decisions that have real ramifications for the country, and they are hurting us.”
Miller also said the party’s lack of unity could hurt its chances of passing tax reform, because of its divisions.
“I think the Republicans don’t have any leadership in the caucus.
The Democrats have a caucus,” he said.”
There are very few people who will vote with them.
If you have a majority of people, that’s the only thing you can do.
It’s a lot like an oligarchy, where you have one man or one woman.
That’s a problem.
The only way they can get it through is if you’ve got the votes.”
Miller added that while the party is trying to rebuild, there are some people who still support the idea of the GOP taking back the Senate.
“There are people who are saying that this is the way to go,” he noted.
“But the people who don’t agree with that are the ones who are going to vote for this, because they’re going to be the ones that are on the outside.”
