A Gallup poll asked Americans what their views were of Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, and McConnell. The public responded: unfavorable.
But, in this quartet of leaders, Pelosi won out: by far the most unfavorable. She continues to plummet.
More Americans (79%) knew who she was than the other three, and of those who had heard of her, 48% were unfavorable.
The top Republican and Democratic leaders in the U.S. House and Senate are a generally unpopular foursome, with Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi being the most well-known, but also the least well-liked. Thirty-one percent of Americans view Pelosi favorably and 48% unfavorably. Her resulting net -17 image score compares with -11 for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, -10 for Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner, and -8 for Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Are they serious? Yes, they are.
Pelosi also rates as the most polarizing of the four congressional leaders, a distinction she also held the last time all four were rated, in May 2010. This is based on the finding that, compared with Boehner, Reid, and McConnell, she receives the highest favorable reviews from members of her own party as well as the highest unfavorable reviews from members of the opposing party.
More specifically, 62% of Democrats view Pelosi favorably, while 83% of Republicans view her unfavorably — a 145-percentage-point spread. This compares with a 109-point spread for Reid, a 102-point spread for Boehner, and a 90-point spread for McConnell.
Pelosi therefore stands as the most appropriate symbol of Congress: polarizing, generally unpopular, and heading lower day by day.
At first glance my thoughts were, now there is a poll that is believable then I read the article. Must be a error someplace. 62% of Democrats and 6% Republicans see her as favorable. NO way.
Lets get this really straight. The worst…..Pelosi. Next worst…Reid. 3rd place……Boehner. 4th place…..McConnel.
Every time I hear Pelosi's babbling or see her ugly botoxed face, I barf. Harry Reid sickens me as well.
But my disgust goes to Boehner and his spineless wimpy ways toward the lying thug in chief.
They ALL need to go home.
Pelosi has a nervous staccato way of speaking that annoys me. I am sure either openly or subliminally annoys others along with her political persuasion.
John Boehner doesn't stand firm on conservative principles. I think the problem is that republicrats, otherwise known as RINOs, are more concerned about their jobs than they are the well-being of the country. Obama needs to be impeached and thrown out of office and no one has the guts to do it knowing that there would be a political backlash from some people like John McCain, Mitt Romney and the democrat left. The trouble with the republican party is that it tries to gage the attitude of the public and takes its que from the overwhelming vote getting ability of the Obama political machine, not wanting to offend anyone. To be a good party you have to stand firm on issues which you will not compromise on . . . issues such as abortion, same sex marriage, fiscal responsibility, religious and personal freedom, 2nd ammendment rights, illegal aliens and constitutional government.
62% of democrats view Pelosi favorably? That proves just how much that party has changed and is removed from reality. She and Reid are pathological liars. Obama seems to suffer from N.P.D. Biden is an embarrassment every time he opens his mouth and is the best example of why we need to install term limits to all politicians. Boehner and Mcconnell are very weak and also need to retire. All the politicians explain why I am a life-long Independent!
"Boner" exemplifies the Establishment Republicans who have partnered with their Democrat friends to weaken the nation for decades. These the “go-along-get-along” Republicans have consistently put personal power ahead of principles. As long as he holds office he will continue the RINO policies that have helped erode the Constitution and our liberties.
Don't forget that Pelosi has been portrayed negatively in Right wing Media (Fox, Talk Radio) for 7 years. That constant propaganda works on Conservatives every time.
Read about the history of parties [Factions] and the 1912 Progressive Party Platform . . have they gotten most of their plan approved?
How she got where she did is a mystery!!! when I hear the word "airhead" she comes to mind first!!! She is without a doubt the most ignorant person in this country, along with oblamo!!!
She brought it all on herself with her own words & actions!!! Her statement "we have to pass it to find out what's in it" will go down in history as the prime example of how stupid politicians can be!!!!
and the voting public think that's great so what does that say about the condition of the U.S.
Head trauma can be so mentally debilitating … psychiatric therapy may be helpful to you.
Republicans are RINO's. All politicians are in power for only their own good. They do not represent the people. And, I think that those politicians have not read the Constitution nor have they read history. History repeats itself.Obama does not respect anyone but himself. Michele reminds me of Imedla Marcos. The mills of justice grind slowly but exceedingly fine. All these evils have to end soon, be stopped.
Why don't we just say, "Everyone of them stinks and should be ashamed of their disregard for the will of the people who elected them."
Are you actually denying that the Conservative Media has not been relentlessly attacking Pelosi since 2007? Did you ever hear anything good about her on these lowbrow propaganda outlets( Fox and Talk Radio)? Can't wait for your brilliant answer.
I just read an issue of Progressive magazine, first time ever. I think I know why she got the approval rating she did among Dems. These people are true believers. I also came to the realization that despite their bizarre (to us) world view, they're serious. They really, really think they're ushering in a better world. It will be the work of centuries to undo this, if it can even be done.
WELL, IMAGINE THAT….NANNY NANCY ISN'T WELL LIKED, WHO'DA THUNK IT ??? BOEHNER IS MY CONGRESSMAN, I VOTED FOR HIM & I WISH I COULD VOTE TO REMOVE HIM NOW !!! HE WAS A GOOD CONGRESSMAN BEFORE HE BECAME SPEAKER, THOUGH. DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THERE, DON'T REALLY CARE, JUST WANT HIM GONE NOW. REID, DO I REALLY NEED TO GO ON A TIRADE ABOUT THAT JACK-OFF ? I DIDN'T THINK SO. I'D PROBABLY END UP WITH CARPAL TUNNEL BY THE TIME I GOT DONE WITH HIM ANYHOW. McCONNELL JUST NEEDS TO SHUT THE HELL UP, RETIRE, & TAKE McCAIN WITH HIM. HOW DID WE END UP WITH THE SPECIAL ED CLASS IN CHARGE OF THE COUNTRY ANYHOW ? HOWEVER IT HAPPENED, IT NEEDS TO STOP……NOW !!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, the only populatrity contest that matters is her equally out of touch constituency.
Don't feel too bad, we could have had Sarah Palin one heartbeat away from the presidency!
Theres Lies, Damn Lies, Political promises, statistics and then there are polls. Non of which should be believed Nanci Pelosi Is Criminally Insane, Harry Red is pure Evil, John Boehner is a sniveling coward, and Mitch McConnell is an average run of the mill Politician.
Benjamin Franklin described Nancy Pelosi perfectly when he said," We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid."
Pelosi. Bush. Obama. Biden. Palin. Clinton. All the same. No difference whatsoever 'tween the 2 parties.
Only 48% view Pelosi unfavorably, I find that figure to be woefully low, I would think Pelosi's unfavorables would be more at the 65% level. Reid's numbers are way too low also. Boehner and McConnel's are low because Republicans don't like them for their non-conservative actions.
Palin, really? Why would you put Palin in the same league as the assorted lowlifes like Pelosi, Obama, Biden and Clinton. Palin is head and shoulders above these slime ball derelicts.
With that stupid statement I assume you like Hillary Clinton? Palin would have made a great VP and a better President than the loser we are stuck with now. Think about it Biden, is heartbeat away from being President, how does that make you feel. Also you don't know anything about Sarah Palin except what the lame stream media has told you. You're an idiot.
You aren't serious are you? You don't have to attack Pelosi all you have to do is tell the truth about the corrupt Pelosi to know she is stupid and a danger to freedom and America. Your problem is you don't know what you don't know.
Apparently 62% of democrats are extremely stupid.
