Ryan is Way More Popular Than Pelosi With the American People, and That’s a Problem for Democrats

Pelosi’s high unfavorability with the American people has already proven problematic for the 78-year-old leader of the Democratic Party.

Ryan is Way More Popular Than Pelosi With the American People, and That’s a Problem for Democrats

A new Gallup poll found that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has almost a 20-point net favorability with the American people over House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), which could prove problematic for Democrats’ hopes of retaking the House in 2018.

According to the poll, 40 percent of Americans view Ryan favorably, while only 29 percent of Americans view Pelosi favorably.

Pelosi has a net favorable of -24 percent, while Ryan’s net favorable is -5 percent.

This 19-point gap in favorability between Ryan and Pelosi could prove problematic for Democrats who wanted to paint Ryan as their villain in the upcoming midterm election.

McClatchy reported last year on the Democrats’ efforts:

“House Democrats think they’ve found a Republican to demonize during next year’s midterm election, and it’s not Donald Trump.”

“In a nod to the Republican president’s enduring popularity with his white working-class base, Democrats are preparing a campaign that focuses just as much on Paul Ryan, the GOP speaker of the House whose own standing with Trump voters has suffered as Republicans struggle to pass major legislation through Congress.”

Pelosi’s high unfavorability with the American people has already proven problematic for the 78-year-old leader of the Democratic Party, as Democratic candidates across the country are running campaigns against Pelosi’s continued leadership.
