Republicans Deemed Too Pro-Rich, 57% in Poll Want Change

A majority of Americans say the Republican Party needs a major overhaul after electoral losses revealed demographic, messaging and technological shortfalls compared with Democrats, a Bloomberg National Poll shows. Even among Republicans, just 16 percent say their party is fine and doesn’t need to change.

The survey also shows the party is viewed as too protective of the wealthy and that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has a slight edge among high-profile Republicans who may lead the party. [cont.]
