    I think in a technical sense John Beohner is the leader of the Republican Party as he is the highest ranking Republican in the country.

    No, I am more asking if any one person is now the clear leader of the party. In the absence of such a person, then who will take over.

    Boehner presently in his absense...McConnell at this point...in my mind there is no clear leader aside from boehner and Mconnell by virtue of their seniority in their positions.
    I think the primary and the election destroyed alot of chances for some to move up in prominence, like Ryan and Christie.
    Jindal in my mind has to many obstacles to climb...I guess my best answer is I just dont know after those two right now.

    I have seen similar type articles several times since the election, and I really don't know how much credence to give them. So who is the leader of the party now. I would ask that only republicans and conservatives(libertarians count too) actually vote in the poll since I am not interested in who us democrats and liberals see as their leader. Who is the leader, with the most influence on the direction of the party?

    Reince Priebus
    John Boehner

    Rep party as of now is not only rudderless but their mast has snapped and the boat is listing heavily to the side in heavy seas.

    Boehner is the closest to a leader of the party, amost by default, and he's an embattled leader of a fractured group. To such a point I can't honestly call him the true "leader" at this moment. I think "no one's" probably closer to accurate than Boehner

    currently Boehner, though only for the interim, IMO.

    here's one analysis addressing the question posed in the OP :

    I can tell you two senior GOP members who would like to be the leader of the Republican party: Lindsay Graham and John McCain. I have no personal opinion about either's party leadership abilities other than to point out that it would take immense effort on their part to be worse than the "current" leadership has been.

    I would like to know who the official leader of the U.S. political parties are. Here the leaders are elected and stay leader for multiple elections due to the frequency of elections, usually till they retire or their death. Having no term limits also helps.

    The one I see closest to the leader is John Boehner, however I don't really see him as the leader. I think it's kind of up for grabs at this point. He's the one that I have been hearing the most about recently and he does hold the highest position out of the Republican party.

    The party has numerous leaders, but in the wake of defeat, like any Party, finding the most appropriate leader/spokesperson is more difficult. Boehner and McConnnell are obvious choices for those with the most power.
