As vote nears, Byron York finds, “Pelosi’s ratings fall to all-time low“:
A new Gallup poll finds that Nancy Pelosi’s favorable rating is 29 percent — the lowest it has been since Pelosi became Speaker of the House. Fifty-six percent of those surveyed have an unfavorable view of Pelosi.
She trails among independents where just 21 percent have “a favorable impression of her, while 58 percent have an unfavorable impression”. She’s even slipping among Democrats.
Pelosi’s ratings are approaching the lows reached by former Speaker Newt Gingrich in his most unpopular days. In April 1997, Gingrich had a 24 percent favorable rating and a 62 percent unfavorable rating. If present trends continue, Pelosi is headed in that direction.
Yeah, but, that trajectory might change with the election results in two weeks. She just won’t garner as much media attention should Democrats lose the House — nor be an a position to push unpopular legislation.
