(PresidentialInsider.com)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was named the most unpopular congressional leader in a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Wednesday.
According to the study, the 82-year-old lawmaker has a 60 percent unfavorability rating, with 50 percent calling her “extremely unfavorable.”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., with a 53 percent unfavorability rating, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., with a 58 percent unfavorability rating, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., with a 41 percent unfavorability rating was among those who fared slightly better.
As expected, more Democrats (63%) than Republicans (14%) or those not associated with either major party (29%) have a more favorable image of Pelosi.
On the other hand, Pelosi is disliked by 34% of Democrats, with 23% having a Very Unfavorable assessment of their party’s House leader. Pelosi is seen negatively by 83 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of unaffiliated people.
Like Pelosi, Schumer has far greater negative ratings than his Republican counterpart, particularly among unaffiliated people. Sixty-seven percent of Republicans, 19 percent of Democrats, and 48 percent of unaffiliated people think Schumer is Very Unfavorable. McConnell is seen negatively by 52 percent of Democrats, 22 percent of Republicans, and 33 percent of unaffiliated people.”
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on April 26-27. The margin of error for the survey is plus or minus three percentage points.
Schumer and Pelosi are tone-deaf and in denial.
They made headlines last month after holding a joint news conference in which they blamed oil firms for the rising cost of gasoline, which reached a new high on Tuesday.
Schumer said that Americans know that Russia’s aggressive, cruel, terrible, harsh invasion of Ukraine has resulted in higher gas prices. They are well aware that COVID-related supply concerns have resulted in shortages at a time when demand is soaring.
He then said oil firms were “cashing in” by utilizing “market manipulation and price gouging.”
“No,” Pelosi went on to remark. I don’t believe the public holds Democrats responsible.
Okay, Miss Popularity, whatever you say.
