Top Conservative Pollster Says Plurality Supports Abolishing The Filibuster

Even Rasmussen Reports, a conservative pollster that’s been widely criticized for publishing results that skew Republican, finds little support for maintaining Senate Republicans’ current power to block progress in the Senate. According to the Republican-leaning pollster, which showed Mitt Romney winning several states in 2012 that he actually lost by significant margins, 44 percent of likely voters “want to change the Senate results so that a vote must be held whenever a majority of senators agrees” to a measure. Just 38 percent oppose effectively eliminating filibusters.
