A poll released over the weekend shows that only 34 percent of Californians approve of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) job performance, down 14 points from March.
The study, conducted by the Field Research Corportation, also showed that 44 percent of respondents disapproved of her job performance while 22 percent held no opinion. In the organization's last poll in March, 48 percent of respondents approved of Pelosi's job performance while 35 percent disapproved.
Democrats approved of Pelosi's performance as leader by a count of 51-23, with 26 percent expressing no opinion. Republicans overwhelmingly disapproved of her performance: 7 percent approved, 79 percent disapproved and 14 percent said they held no opinion.
39 percent of "non-partisans" approved of her while 37 percent disapproved, with 24 percent responding that they had no opinion.
Pelosi's job approval had sunk to similar lows in October and December 2007 during President George W. Bush's second term.
In the last seven months, the House of Representatives has taken on a number of big-ticket issues. The lower chamber passed a cap-and-trade energy bill and has drafted sweeping healthcare reform legislation that includes a controversial public health insurance option.
The economic stimulus bill was signed into law in February but critics of the legislation have pointed to high unemployment as a sign the bill has failed to achieve its goals. Democratic leaders and the Obama administration have defended the measure's role in stabilizing the economic downturn.
The study polled 1,005 Californians by phone from Sept. 18 to Oct. 5.
It doesn’t matter. The only one’s that matter are in her district. They love her...............
That’s like saying that “only” 34% of men would like to have their soft parts nailed to burning stumps.
That headline should read something like, “Dear Lord, 34% of the residents of the People’s Soviet Socialist Tyranny of Kalifornistan are still brain dead.”
It’s irrelevant that only 34% of Californians approve of Nancy Pelosi’s performance. The only statistic that is important is what percentage of people in her Congressional District will vote for her and what percentage will vote for each of the other candidates. My prediction is she wil be reelected in a landslide in 2010.
It may be irrelevant, but it speaks volumes about the stupidity factor in California!
Yep. She is in a district with a surplus of stuck on stupid.
Yes but will the hottub crowd throw her off the Golden Gate.
They are brain dead.
One in Three are Brain Dead there!!
No term limits is why we are losing control of the representative government we fought and died for.
The only person that might take on Nancy Pelosi would be Jerry Rice from the 49er championship years (or Joe Montana)...Maybe they might get enough votes, although San Francisco is such a liberal bastian they probably don’t even watch football!
CA assembly approval at 13% and falling.
I’m surprised it’s that high, but they must love her in her district.
But somehow she will continue to be reelected time and time again.
The other two are stoned...............
Of course Pelosi will continue to be re-elected in her one party district for as long as she likes.
Its the people who live in conservative leaning districts and Blue Dog Democrats who keep her in power as the Speaker.
Get a clue America!
“The other two are stoned...............”
Yeah the one that likes Nazi is the one growing the crap for the two stoners.
That 34% approval all comes from her district. She’ll be re-elected, BUT I am grinning ear to ear because she’ll have to hand over her precious gavel to the GOP Speaker of the House. Hopefully, that person is Bachmann. :)
