(Rasmussen) — Voters continue to dislike the top leaders in Congress which is one reason support for term limits remains high. Voters still express more dissatisfaction with the Democratic leaders than their GOP counterparts.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains the least popular congressional leader, with 57% who view her unfavorably. Twenty-nine percent (29%) share a favorable opinion of the San Francisco Democrat. These findings include nine percent (9%) who view Pelosi Very Favorably and 44% who view her Very Unfavorably.
Pelosi’s latest unfavorable rating is only a slight improvement from her worst rating ever (64%) measured in July and February.
For House Speaker John Boehner, 34% have a favorable opinion of him while 46% view him unfavorably. That includes eight percent (8%) who have a Very Favorable view of the Ohio Republican and 27% who have a Very Unfavorable impression of him. When Boehner took the reins as speaker from Pelosi, he enjoyed a 45% favorable rating and a 34% unfavorable rating.
Twenty-four percent (24%) of voters share a favorable impression of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, including just seven percent (7%) who view him Very Favorably. Forty-nine percent (49%) view the Nevada Democrat unfavorably, with 31% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of him. In late May, Reid’s favorable rating hit an all-time low of 21%.
