The Hill: 34% of Californians approve of Pelosi's performance
A poll released over the weekend shows that only 34 percent of Californians approve of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) job performance, down 14 points from March.
The study, conducted by the Field Research Corportation, also showed that 44 percent of respondents disapproved of her job performance while 22 percent held no opinion. In the organization's last poll in March, 48 percent of respondents approved of Pelosi's job performance while 35 percent disapproved.
Democrats approved of Pelosi's performance as leader by a count of 51-23, with 26 percent expressing no opinion. Republicans overwhelmingly disapproved of her performance: 7 percent approved, 79 percent disapproved and 14 percent said they held no opinion.
39 percent of "non-partisans" approved of her while 37 percent disapproved, with 24 percent responding that they had no opinion.
There's no surprise int he numbers with regard to Republicans and Democrats. The GOP has never been fond of her, and the Democrats seem to have the same leg tingles that Chris Matthews has for Barry. So while these numbers can bolster the GOP in California, they are virtually moot. (This is where the bad news comes in.)
The entire state doesn't vote on her seat in the House. Her district does, and that district is the 8th congressional district which is comprised of four-fifths of the city and county of San Francisco. Folks, she's as a safe as a newborn in that city. It'll never turn on her. This poll reflects the general opinion of the state, as a whole. Were she in the Senate these numbers would be heartening for any Californian sick of her antics.
So take heart that California dislikes this woman as much as most of us do, but don't pop that champagne yet because she's not going anywhere.
