Democrats are making it pretty clear that they don’t want Nancy Pelosi to be speaker of the house, according to a new Gallup poll. Can you blame them? How long is this woman supposed to be in power? If you were a Democrat, wouldn’t you want to see some new blood in the role?
The FOX News Insider reports:
Poll: 56% of Democrats Don’t Want Pelosi to Be House Speaker
Rep. Nancy Pelosi recently said she is “100-percent” confident that she will be the next Speaker of the House, but a new poll found that a majority of Democrats don’t want her in the leadership role she held from 2007 to 2011.
A new Gallup poll shows that by 56 percent to 39 percent, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be replaced as their leader in the House.
The question was posed to Democrats in Gallup’s Oct. 15-28 poll, conducted before the party won back control of the House in the midterm elections.
Dozens of Democratic candidates, including many who won their elections last week, have pledged not to support Pelosi for Speaker when the party decides on its leader for the next Congress later this month.
On “Fox & Friends First” Monday, Democratic strategist Howard Franklin said Pelosi is right to feel confident, because she has a long record of service in the House, and she has proven to be a prolific fundraiser.
She won’t give up power unless she is forced to. That is abundantly clear.
