It’s been a rough year for Nancy Pelosi.
If she fails to deliver on Joe Biden’s legislative agenda, she could lose her job as Speaker.
And Nancy Pelosi is going to flip-out when she sees the results of this new jaw-dropping poll.
Democrats are defending one of the narrowest Congressional majorities in American history in 2022.
Senate Republicans only need to flip one seat to take back the Upper Chamber, while House Republicans only need to flip five seats to retake the majority and fire Nancy Pelosi.
Since historical data shows that the party out of the White House traditionally performs better in the midterms, Democrats are already facing an uphill battle.
But polls show Joe Biden’s failures on everything from COVID to the border crisis, Afghanistan, and the economy could be setting Democrats up for major Congressional losses in 2022.
For the first time since 2014 – the same year Democrats lost nine seats in the Senate and racked up double-digit losses in the House – Republicans are leading Democrats in the latest generic ballot Quinnipiac poll.
Of course, Pelosi smiles and laughs on camera to try to give the appearance that she isn’t worried about losing her job as Speaker.
But Pelosi won’t be smiling and laughing when she sees the results of a brand new Rasmussen poll.
Normally, pollsters ask voters who they will support in an upcoming election, or ask them for their position on the various issues of the day.
But Rasmussen recently changed things up a bit by asking voters to rate their impressions of the top leaders in Congress, including House Speaker Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
With 60 percent of voters saying they view her unfavorably (51% of those answered “very” unfavorable), Nancy Pelosi was voted the least popular leader in Congress.
Only 35 percent of U.S. voters have a favorable view of Pelosi, which is some of her worst numbers ever.
But it wasn’t just Republicans who shared this view.
The poll also found that 21 percent of Democrats have a “very unfavorable” view of Nancy Pelosi.
But perhaps most telling of all is that 57 percent of voters not affiliated with any party have a “very unfavorable” view of Pelosi.
If Pelosi can’t pull her divided caucus together and deliver a legislative victory for Joe Biden, Democrats are expected to drop even further in the polls.
And this keeps Pelosi and Schumer up at night.
