Nancy Pelosi, Least Liked Member Of The House, Decides To Continue On As Democratic House Minority Leader

By Susan Duclos

Nancy Pelosi who has maintained her standing for well over two years as the the member of the House of Representatives that holds the lowest favorability ratings, has decided to stay on as the House minority leader.

 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will remain atop the Democratic caucus for at least two more years, extending her role as Congress’s most vocal liberal voice opposing the Republican agenda despite a second straight election in which her party failed to win back the majority.

The title of least favorable Senate member, goes to the Democratic Senate majority leader, Harry Reid.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continue to be the most disliked leaders of Congress, but none of the top congressional leaders earns high positive reviews from voters.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable impression of Pelosi, while 59% view her unfavorably.  Those figures include a Very Favorable review from 13%, compared to 46% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of the California Democrat.

Both Pelosi and Reid hold over 50 percent unfavorability ratings.
