Newly released polling data shows that the majority of Americans are ready for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to leave Congress.
Rasmussen released new polling data for Pelosi, who has said she intends to step down soon.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi intends to seek another term in Congress, but most voters (including nearly a third of Democrats) think it would be better for the country if she stepped down,” Rasmussen said.
The poll found that well over half of Americans have a negative view of Pelosi.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 37% of Likely U.S voters have a favorable impression of Pelosi, including 17% who have a Very Favorable view of the California Democrat,” Rasmussen said. “Sixty percent (60%) voters view Pelosi unfavorably, including 50% who have a Very Unfavorable impression of her.”
Pelosi isn’t the only unpopular Democrat in Congress. Polling shows that generic Republicans have a major lead over generic Democrats, egged on by economic and foreign policy woes under the Biden administration.
There are also demographic changes underway as well, with a historic shift to the Republican party in 2021, according to Gallup.
“Both the nine-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter and the five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter are among the largest Gallup has measured for each party in any quarter since it began regularly measuring party identification and leaning in 1991,” Gallup said.
