John Boehner Now Seen More Unfavorably Than Nancy Pelosi



After all those years, all those hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on ads demonizing Nancy Pelosi, and it come down to this. The truth.

House Speaker John Boehner has now unseated his Democratic predecessor Nancy Pelosi as the least-liked major congressional leader, a title Pelosi has held for several years.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters now view Boehner unfavorably, while 50% feel that way about Pelosi. Just 31% have a favorable opinion of the Ohio congressman, compared to 37% who look favorably on the San Francisco Democrat.

     Boner is less popular -- He led us toward deficit ceiling default and now the fiscal "cliff." .. Pelosi wasn't much better during her reign, but Boner's was never very high after he took over and tanked 18 months ago.  Now this is a case of which person stinks less, not which one is better. Sadly both parties need new leadership to represent the "new" Congress. I hear the Rethugs are thinking Paul Ryan -- leapfrogging the backstabbing Eric Cantor.  That will lead to some substantial infighting if so much of it didn't exist already. DG
