Nancy Pelosi Ranked the Most Unpopular Leader in Congress: Poll
House Speaker proved to be the least popular out of all the leaders
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been rated the most unpopular leader in Congress, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.
Voters were asked what they thought of top leaders in Congress by giving them a rating, these include:
- House Speaker Pelosi
- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)
- Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
But Pelosi proved to be the least popular out of all the leaders:
Sixty percent indicating they viewed Pelosi unfavorably.
Fifty-one percent view her “very” unfavorably.
McConnell and Schumer were close, as 55 percent and 54 percent, respectively, view them unfavorably.
Out of those, 43 percent have a “very” unfavorable view of the New Yorker.
Thirty-six percent have a “very” unfavorable view of the Kentucky Republican.
But McCarthy came out on top with an unfavorable rating of 34 percent.
His favorability was higher, at 42 percent.
Pelosi’s numbers vary along party lines:
64 percent of Democrats have a favorable view of her.
3 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of independents.
Unsurprisingly, 79% of Republicans have a Very Unfavorable impression of Pelosi and 21% of Democrats.
Meanwhile, 57% of voters not affiliated with either major party also have a Very Unfavorable view of Pelosi.
Schumer has a Very Unfavorable rating from 67% of Republicans, 18% of Democrats, and 48% of unaffiliated voters.
The survey was conducted among 1,000 likely U.S. voters and taken October 3-4, 2021, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
The news comes amid the Biden administration’s multitrillion-dollar spending bonanza, which Pelosi claims would cost “zero” dollars.
