Congressional Favorability Ratings
Pelosi, Reid Still Least Favorable Congressional Leaders
Voters continue to dislike the top leaders in Congress which is one reason support for term limits remains high.

Voters still express more dissatisfaction with the Democratic leaders than their GOP counterparts.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains the least popular congressional leader, with 57% who view her unfavorably.

ObamaCare More Unpopular Than Ever Before

Thank you, 60 Minutes. Nice to see some in the liberal media are still willing to expose the Left's corruption.

This akin to the battered women syndrome.

CBS conducting a random act of journalism. With their ratings tanking, maybe they think they can pick up some foxnews viewers.

Guess it's not exactly news

The Most Unpopular Politicians: Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid
May 15, 2012
Nancy Pelosi is universally seen as one of the most divisive figures in American politics. Now the poling proves it. 63% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of her, according to a new poll of likely voters by Rasmussen. This makes her the most disliked figure in modern American politics today. Quite possibly in the history of American politics.

The most unpopular sitting politician at the moment, Nancy Pelosi, presided over a House that crafted ObamaCare behind closed doors as she blatantly deceived Americans. She said it would create 400,000 jobs instantly. And who can forget how we need to pass the bill so that we can find out what’s in its 2000-plus pages — doesn’t that seem a little contrary to the whole purpose of a democratic republic?

In the same poll, Harry Reid is the second-most disliked figure, with 57% of voters having an unfavorable view of him.

But the Dems in NV and Pelosi's district love both of them, as do Senate and House Democrats because they keep choosing them as their Congress leaders.

Pelosi represents San Francisco. 'Nuff said.

Reid was re-elected because the Republicans in my state were sticking too much to their principles, IMO, and put Sharron Angle up against him. Angle, while representing the views of Nevada conservatives much better, wasn't able to beat Reid, and I think most people knew that.

Had they been able to look at the bigger picture, and realize that Sue Lowden, while not as good a fit, was a complete lock to beat Reid, he would have been ousted. Had she gotten the nomination, he could have just quit the campaign and saved all his dough - he wouldn't have stood a chance against her. But what happened, happened, and hopefully the Republicans here have learned from their mistake.
