Poll determines Pelosi to be nation’s ‘most unpopular elected official’

It has become clear in recent years that politicians on both sides of the aisle are increasingly unpopular in the eyes of voters in the other party.

Nevertheless, a few high-profile elected officials are notably more divisive than the rest of their peers — including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to one new poll.

Pelosi’s popularity plummets

Despite having recently launched her third term leading the Democratic caucus in the House of Representatives, the power does not seem to have translated into widespread popularity.

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a poll on Friday that portrays Pelosi as the “most unpopular elected official in the country.

Pollsters found that the 80-year-old lawmaker’s popularity rating is underwater among the voters her party needs to attract in order to maintain a legislative majority after next year’s midterm elections.

Just 41% of respondents gave her a favorable rating, compared to the 52% who recorded an unfavorable opinion. A whopping 45% expressed their feelings toward her as very unfavorable.

The situation for Pelosi and the Democrats becomes even more precarious when considering congressional districts where there is a high rate of split tickets — or voters who cast a ballot for a candidate from one party for president and another for Congress.

GOP leads in other areas

In these districts, Pelosi’s favorability plummets to 38%, with 58% inclined to express an unfavorable opinion. A slim majority — 51% — of these respondents regard her very unfavorably.

The results are broken down further along demographic lines, with the pollsters reporting: “Pelosi is unpopular with almost every key subgroup outside the Democratic base including Independents (-21%), suburban women (-8%), white college graduates (-7%), Hispanics (-3%), and even union households (-3%).

Pelosi’s unpopularity spread to the rest of her party in these ticket-splitting districts, where the poll found “Republicans lead the generic ballot by +8% (45% GOP – 37% Dem).”

The apparent good news for Republicans could also be found in the results showing just over half of respondents want “a Republican who will be a check-and-balance to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi” compared to just 40% who seek “a Democratic member of Congress who will help Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats pass their agenda.”

Given the historically poor performance of the sitting president’s party during midterm elections, the deck seems especially stacked against Democrats in the 2022 races.

She makes accusations on Trump that are what she did . She puts the blame on Trump. Nancy needs to be prosecuted for incitement and violence of the Capitol riot. She planned everything and put forth a fake Impeachment to destroy President Trump. She is an evil destructive person. Time for Nancy to be put in prison.
