Now why wouldn’t Americans favor the two Socialist Progressive Democrats that gave them a failed $862 billion stimulus, $1 trillion plus ObamaCare and financial reform that doesn’t cover Freddie & Fannie? Why wouldn’t Americans favor these two outstanding leaders who have doubled the unemployment rate and tripled the budget deficit in 2009. I just can’t figure out why Americans dislike these two libtards. Maybe it was how they ran the most open, most honest and most ethical Congress in history?
In addition to becoming competitive in his bid for reelection in Nevada, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now nearly tied with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when it comes to unpopularity among voters nationwide.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters across the country finds that 56% have at least a somewhat unfavorable opinion of Reid, while 59% feel the same way about Pelosi.
The good news for Reid that these figures include 47% with a Very Unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, while just 38% hold a Very Unfavorable opinion of him.
Twenty-six percent (26%) have a favorable opinion of the Nevada Democrat, but that includes just five percent (5%) with a Very Favorable view. Thirty-four percent (34%) regard the San Francisco congresswoman favorably, with 13% Very Favorable toward her.
Still, 19% don’t know enough about Reid to venture any kind of opinion about him, while only seven percent (7%) have no opinion of Pelosi.
Neither Democratic congressional leader has been particularly popular since the current session of Congress began early last year, but Pelosi has been the better-known and least popular of the duo for most of that time. Pelosi’s unfavorables have ranged from 52% to 64% in that time period, while Reid’s generally remained in the 40s last year but have been consistently in the 50s since then.
But then the majority of voters nationwide believe the Democratic congressional agenda is extreme, while a plurality describes the Republican agenda as mainstream.
