House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is the most unpopular elected official in the United States, according to an internal survey by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
Pelosi was “immensely unpopular” in almost every “key” subgroup included in the GOP poll, including women, Latinos, and union households.
The survey identified the 80-year-old speaker as the “most unpopular elected official in the country,” with a 52% unfavorable rating and a 41% favorable rating. The unfavorable rating includes 45% who see Pelosi as “very” unfavorable.
Pelosi’s unpopularity in ticket-splitting districts, which Republicans seem to have an edge in, is even worse, standing at 38% favorable and 58% unfavorable. Among those, the majority, or 51%, see it as “very” unfavorable.
“Pelosi is unpopular with almost every key subgroup outside the Democratic base including Independents (-21%), suburban women (-8%), white college graduates (-7%), Hispanics (-3%), and even union households (-1%),” the survey found.
The release comes as Pelosi foresaw her plan to turn the Democrat-led House into what has been described as a “factory for Democrat priorities.” In the last few weeks alone, the House has adopted a $1.9 trillion CCP Virus proposal, which Republicans said is more about other issues and Democrat pet projects than public health, as well as the Equality Act and H.R. 1.
“They’ll move everything from election reform to a policing overhaul to gun control, plus women’s and union rights and a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers,” according to Politico.
The survey was conducted from Feb. 24 to Feb. 28, 2021, among 1,000 voters in 85 battleground congressional districts.
