Poll reveals dismal approval ratings for Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez

In today’s highly polarized political context, it is not surprising that congressional favorability ratings can often run to extremes. However, given the results of a recent survey, certain high-profile Democrat legislators may have real cause for concern.

According to polling data just released by Rasmussen Reports, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and progressive “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are viewed as extremely unlikeable by a sizable portion of the electorate, something that may prompt an internal re-examination of their party’s recent far-left shift.

The survey questioned 1,000 likely voters by phone and via the Internet between Feb. 24 and 25 and had a margin of error of plus or minus three points. Respondents gave Ocasio-Cortez – often touted as the future of her party – an unfavorability rating of 54%, with 44% of those falling into the “very unfavorable” perception category.

Within the current hierarchy of congressional leaders, Pelosi also had a rather poor showing, earning “very unfavorable” rating from 48% of those surveyed, according to Rasumssen. Conversely, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) notched a respectable 43% “somewhat favorable” rating within which 20% of respondents had a “very favorable” opinion of the lawmaker.

These results come on the heels of the November election in which the Democrats’ majority in the House was preserved by a surprisingly slim margin. Soon after, Pelosi eked out a narrow victory in her quest to retain the speaker’s gavel despite suffering five defections from within her party, as USA Today noted.

That outcome, according to some pundits on the left, likely foreshadows the difficulties Pelosi will face in bringing together the progressive and moderate factions of the Democratic Party during the first two years of Joe Biden’s presidency.

As Michael Hardaway, former staffer to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) told USA Today, “You’re going to have the progressives versus the moderates on nearly every bill.”

Conventional wisdom suggests that as long as Pelosi and AOC continue to grab headlines and make their increasingly radical positions known to vast swaths of American voters, Republicans may have an easier time reclaiming the majority in the 2022 midterms.

It remains to be seen whether Pelosi and more middle-of-the-road Democrats are capable of reading the writing on the wall as revealed by the Rasmussen poll and begin tempering their message to appeal to a wider audience.

  7. I do consider all the concepts you’ve introduced on your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  8. Where is the rest of the Democratic party? There are only a handful of radical nuts dictating the thoughts of the majority. Can’t someone in the Democratic party speak up and get their party looking at what the majority of our country wants and needs. I’m sure the democrats still have some members who believe in the constitution and what our country is all about. They need to look at what’s happening and use their positions for more that a chair to set and listen to a minority of idiot talk for them .

  9. Exactly when will somebody in authority grow a pair and call the last election exactly the illegal power grab that it was? I mean, the Supreme Court won’t even touch it. If something doesn’t happen soon with our “elected” civil government, the next stop on this “hand basket to hell” is probably going to be a military coup. Joint Chiefs, are you listening? China Joe has all the power AND the nuke codes. He is being handled by a bunch of swamp creatures that could give a diddly damn about this country or it’s military. All they want is power… the kind of power to bring down America to their level.

  10. What does it matter if they don’t review the evidence in the last election, and the special election in Georgia, to show the real winners all up and down the ballot. The democrats lost, they know it. They can care less as they plan to steal future elections, unless only paper ballots and voter ID are enforced. And if someone with guts, maybe the military, some judge, the Supreme Court or someone else, steps forward, reviews the evidence of voter fraud and does the right thing and insure the correct winner is in office. The democrats have a history of stealing elections going back years, nothing will change as long as people who can force change do so. So Pilosi and other political criminals in the Democatic party care less, they just plan to steal future elections. as they did in the past as they know no one will stop them.

  11. I must say that both are prime examples of their party…the dumbest of the dumbest! They represent Democrats quite well. Fortunately for them, they don’t have to be smart to keep pulling in the big bucks…they’ve got a well-oiled machine that will keep them in office no matter how badly they poll. Extremely stupid people make excellent puppets and that’s what some very evil people see as Pelosi & AOC’s “positive” attributes.

  12. Pelosi is personally responsible for January 6th she put it all together on January 5th it came out exactly as she planned. making the best president we will ever have apparently responsible. capital responsibility is all Nancy’s she deflected help all day January 5th. the election was her responsibility also she and her husband invested one million $ in Dominion voting systems.

  13. Pelosi has out lived any usefulness she may have once had. She needs to realize this and depart on her own. And it appears Cortez is using Pelosi as a role model. Big mistake.

  14. Nancy Pelosi wants to put a wall around the Capitol building so we can have our own Kremlin just like Russia. I don’t know whether she or Biden is our Putin but the whole idea is democrat stupid

  15. Piglosi and Cortez are poster “ girls?” Of radical, power hungry, Marxist/ communist ideaology! They want the lgbtq populace to maim our children, murder our unborn babies, destroy our human values, and our country! They are a blight on our nation and should be removed from congress!

  16. Both of those beings had to be an accidental mistake at birth. It seems that each of their mothers must have made a mistake by having thrown out the baby and then raised the afterbirth.

  17. Pelosi is insane she needs to quit or retire Cortez is bug eyed loud mouth acts like she’s on some type of bad drugs searching for quick fix we can do without both and not miss either

  18. Radical Democrats will be rejected by the Radical Right who want America to remain a common sense country with ALL the freedoms the Constitution promises: free speech; guaranteed gun rights and freedom of religion to name but a few!

  19. Pelosi really needs to go she is a pathetic piece of crap. Cortes, Schumer, Watters, Swallwell,Shiff all these idiots are a sick bunch. They have no respect for the Constitution or the Bible. The demonrats break all rules of both. And now this senile old man in the White House has destroyed jobs and anything he puts his hands on. We can’t afford 4 years of these 2 idiots in the White House. Our country will be gone. Time to impeach these 2 now.

    1. Yep, I agree! Pelosi needs to go … and take all the rest of her comrades with her !!!!!

      Can they all go … for good ????

    2. Don’t forget if you impeach those two FRAUDS in the WHITEHOUSE the next in line for the Presidency would be PIGLOSI!! You will need to rid America of this dispicable Godless Monster as well and at the same time! All in one fell swoop! THEY ARE ALL COMMUNIST!

  20. I find Nancy Pelosi to be an evil, disgusting power hungry human being. If I NEVER see her face on tv again as a representative of my country I would be ecstatic. AOC? I just feel sorry for her as she has not a clue

    1. Oh, Susan, sorry, I have to disagree with you about AOC (I’m also, Including Omar and the other diaper head ) … please don’t feel sorry for her ! She got “ trained “ to become some kind of
      “ community organizer “ … this was all she learned through her college years … she is on the “ right path” to follow on Pelosi’s footsteps!
      In their “ profession “ they don’t need smart people ( on the contrary, the stupider, the better)
      They only need to bash the USA and follow the
      rhetoric and also convince others about hating the country, that’s all !!!!!

    2. Sadly, it won’t make you feel any better, but fancy nancy, the commie, does NOT represent our country – -she only represents her own wealth and power.

    3. I don’t feel sorry for any of these Godless abominations! They are all TRAITORS TO AMERICA and deserve to reap the appropriate sentence for their numerous crimes! As I remember the penalties for Treason are firing squad (appropriate) or hanging! I’m happy with either!

      1. What Good they did for Americans ,for Country? Just divide people,spread hate? It’s enough,we tiered! Time to work!

  21. If the truth is told, Pelosi, Biden, Harris; all will have lousy ratings as far as voters are concerned, primarily because of the way the voting was tainted by the democrats in the last election.

  22. Both Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez are a blight for America in my opinion. I do not believe you can believe anything either of these people say.

    1. And I can’t believe that they didn’t rate a below 10% favorability rating! But then, as is proven 24/7 every day of the year, the vacuous, demented liberals are “willfully ignorant and blind!!” God help us all!

      1. Cash Girl. I don’t believe most liberals ad leftists are ignorant or blind. They are cold ad calculating. Their consistency of hatred actually seems contageous.
        The problem with most average Democrats is they have ceased practicing the qualities of thinking and fairness. They have ceased to support the right to hold different views and have allowed their leadership to drive thinking Democrats out of the party. Now there is no room for a John Kennedy or Henry Scoop Jackson. Or Sam Rayburn.
        Many more. None were anti-capitalists.
        None called their opponents Nazis or Fascists or white supremists.

        1. Exactly right, Peter !!!!
          They have an agenda and they know what they’re doing … they are not ignorant and blind , they are just evil !!!!
