(Washington, DC) -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is rapidly losing popularity.
A telephone poll taken late last week shows 48-percent of Americans don't approve of how Pelosi is doing her job.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll comes as the California Democrat faces intense criticism over what she knew and when about government use of enhanced interrogation techniques.
Last week, Pelosi said in a news conference that the CIA lied to Congress in 2002 and 2003 about its use of interrogation methods like waterboarding on terror suspects.
Pelosi's new 39-percent approval rating makes her less popular than other congressional Democrats, who got 51-percent approval from respondents to the April CNN/ORC survey.
The rating also puts her at about the same approval level that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had in 1995 during his first year in that job.
Only “nearly half?” Has the other half of Americans had lobotomies?
In that case, lets encourage her to stay!
only 48% disapprove?! We are a very uneducated nation (thank you government education).
What in the hell’s wrong with the other half?
Half of me disapproves of her and the other half hates her guts!
They only polled the democrats............
The results begs the premise: exactly what has this Political Sleestak done that has earned any approval (other than bashing non-Dhimmicrats)?
Poor Nancy. For reasons unknown, it appears that the MSM is willing to actually report on her rambling inconsistencies and hypocritial accusations. It’s what happens when a Democrats behavior is not routinely ignored or covered up.
Try to act surprised when she doesn’t step down and gets re-elected in 2010...
Nearly Half Of Americans Disapprove Of Pelosi’s Job Performance,
Po lil San Fran Nan Nan...
Dont cry, hunny chile...
This just means that more than half Of Americans approve of your job performance..
Why they would though, I dont know ...
Maybe it has something to do with that big ol D ?????
“For reasons unknown, it appears that the MSM is willing to actually report on her rambling inconsistencies and hypocritial accusations”
Hey Nancy...how’s that truth commission thing working out?
Gee, how will you be getting home when you lose the big jet?
I hope the pounding continues nonstop.
if she resigns who replaces her, reid?
My guess? By July 4, 2009. It's called Karma; it's called the Dims taking responsibility.
Bu-Bye, Pelosi. It's not been nice havin' ya as Speaker.
Unfortunately the half that like her are in her district
Pelosi’s new 39-percent approval rating
I thought she was at about 9 pts!!!
Reid is in the senate ... Nancy is in the house
At least 48-percent of Americans are too ignorant to even know who she is.
