Gallup reports that while “one in three Americans are still unfamiliar with [House Speaker John] Boehner, his ratings are now much more positive than negative, a shift from prior to the election, when they were about equally positive and negative“:
Of those familiar with the Republican Speaker, nearly two-thirds hold a favorable view of the Ohioan. By contrast, only 33% view his predecessor favorably with 54% holding an unfavorable opinion of Minority Leader Pelosi. (Of those who have an opinion, that is, just 38% think highly of the San Francisco Democrat, 62% unfavorably.)
And his victory last year in Nevada has done little to change the popular opinion nationwide of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. His numbers are almost exactly the opposite of Boehner’s with a 41% unfavorable rating and 25% favorable.
