    Is Pelosi America&#039;s Least Popular Politician? - NYTimes.com

    As it turns out, yeah. More unpopular than George Bush, Harry Reid or even Dick Cheney. In fact, you name them, Pelosi comes out on bottom. So says the New York Times...

    Hat tip to HA...

    Inevitable: Democrats elect Pelosi minority leader; Update: Pelosi&#8217;s favorables now lower than Cheney&#8217;s Hot Air

    Apparently the Democrats in Congress disagree.

    Apparently they seem to think she's been very effective.

    Apparently the Republicans agree. Bipartisanship is possible in this great land...

    We'll see how it turns out. It's too early to say.

    On a local level (the City of Bell springs to mind), there are officials who are less popular than Pelosi - but on the national stage, she is The Queen of Unpopularity.

    I agree that how it turns out is anyone's guess. However, it's not to early to say that the Democrats in the House just put America's most unpopular pol into the minority power drivers seat.

    :lol:

    That said, "most unpopular" will always be a floating target.

    I doubt most Americans even know who she is.

    I think it has to do with why she's the "most unpopular" - she's been vilified because she's 1.) very effective, and 2.) Gaffs like Biden. The next "most unpopular" will be whoever becomes the next effective target.
