House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been in politics for over 30 years. However, longevity does not equal popularity.
A recent poll has revealed that Pelosi is the least popular Democrat in Congress, Breitbart report. The California Democrat has a 34% favorability rating compared to her 48% unfavorability.
The National Republican Congressional Committee released the poll Tuesday that asked likely voters about the top-tier Democrats. Pelosi is more unpopular than both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris — and that’s certainly notable.
Biden has 44% favorability among those polled and a 53% unfavorable opinion. Only 41% of voters have a favorable opinion of Harris, while 52% have an unfavorable view of her.
When it comes to Pelosi, there are many reasons for such strong dislike among voters. She has served in government since 1987 and, in that time, enriched herself with a peculiar amount of luck in the stock market. Just last summer, her husband, Paul Pelosi, reported a $5 million gain on tech stock trades even as she has her own hands on the levers of political power.
The 82-year-old has also caught the public eye with her ghastly appearance some say is the result of plastic surgery. “The only things higher than Biden’s runaway inflation and gas prices are Nancy Pelosi’s eyebrows,” Republican Congressional candidate Errol Webber quipped.
However, Pelosi’s behavior is especially off-putting, like when she tore up former President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. The former president had tweeted about her questionable sanity — back when he was still allowed on Twitter — in 2020. “Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation,” he said when Pelosi was trying to have Trump removed from office. “They don’t call her crazy for nothing.”
