Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer Need More Friends

Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer Need More Friends

The 50-50 nation marches on. Half the voters in the country don’t like new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the highest ranking Democrat in Washington, D.C., but just as many disapprove of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Congress’ top Republican.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% have a favorable opinion of Pelosi, while 50% view her unfavorably. This includes 20% with a Very Favorable view of the San Francisco congresswoman and 40% with a Very Unfavorable one. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
