Nancy Pelosi's Approval Rating Dirt-Dives Amid Shutdown Shenanigans (& Other Alliteration)



Do you absolutely loooove Nancy Pelosi? If you do, your team’s numbers are dwindling.

Sorry ’bout that.

According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey, Pelosi’s pelummeting.


Are you nonpelussed? Puh-lease.

During the (partial) government shutdown, Nancy’s numbers nodded off, to the tune of a 6-point reduction. 47% of peeps polled put Pelosi in her place: they rated her as “very negative.” Only 28% viewed her favorably.

The President’s fared better: Since November, his approval’s only dropped 3 percent. He’s remained at 43% since December — 10 days prior to the Mexican (in more ways than one) standoff.

Trump didn’t do so well in the category of “Who’s responsible for the shutdown mess” (not the wording of the study): A majority blamed him, while congressional Democrats only caught the ire of 40%.

Last Thursday, a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll came up with some surprising news: The Donald’s thumbs-up from Hispanics has grown by 19% since the shutdown. Thus, 50% of Latino adults give the President a pat on the back.


He took to Twitter to give himself one:

Is Nancy’s spiral surprising? She’s given people lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of reasons to be less than fond of her — like here, here, here, here, here, and here. But it’s been that way for quite a long time.


Are hordes just now discovering her goofs? Have millions of previously uninformed Americans recently wandered into RedState territory? If so, welcome. And you’re in for a host of more reasons.

Stay tuned.
