[Ed. – TBH, it can’t have been a thrill for the respondents to have to think about any in this parade of names. And that said, it’s a lousy time to try to be one of these leaders. So we’ve got all that going for us. Cheers.]
A new Gallup poll shows that among the four congressional leaders of both political parties, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has the highest “unfavorable” rating among Americans at 53%. The second most unfavorable leader is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) at 50%.
In the survey, Gallup asked, “Next, we’d like to get your overall opinion of some people in the news. As I read each name, please say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of that person — or if you have never heard of them.”
Pelosi received a 29% “favorable” rating from the responents and 53% “unfavorable.” Another 18% said they did not know (“unknown”) or “had no opinion.” McConnell earned a 24% fvorable and 50% unfavorable.
