Democrats Want Party To Be More Like Pelosi Than Ocasio-Cortez

Before President Trump criticized the so-called “Squad” of young Democratic congresswomen, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was already trying to wrest the media’s attention away from them. Her fellow Democrats tend to agree with Pelosi, but it’s far from a slam dunk.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely Democratic Voters believe Democrats in Congress should be more like Pelosi than like Squad leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Twenty-nine percent (29%) disagree and think congressional Democrats should be more like Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez. Just as many (28%), however, are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
