    Here I thought White Flag Harry was "doing the will of the people" - yet he has lower approval numbers then Pres Bush AND VP Cheney

    How the once mighty has fallen

    Harry Reid's favorables fall to 19%

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record) is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%. Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.

    Reid has been very visible over the past week in the furor over immigration reform. The effort to pass a bill that was more popular in Congress than among voters may have hurt public perceptions of the Democratic leader. His ratings are down from a month ago when 26% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senator. Reid's highest ratings were 30% favorable in February.

    Each week, Rasmussen Reports updates favorability ratings for a number of political figures and others in the news. The latest numbers for Defense Secretary Robert Gates reflect a steady decline in recent months. He is now viewed favorably by 36% of Americans and unfavorably by 34%. Last December, 49% have a favorable opinion and only 26% held a negative opinion.

    Vice President Dick Cheney's numbers held steady at a 38% favorable and 58% unfavorable.
