John Boehner wins unpopularity contest

SHARE John Boehner wins unpopularity contest

A new Rasmussen poll gives House Speaker John Boehner a reason to be upset — he’s Congress’ most unpopular leader.

The poll shows he continues to fall behind House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in the favorability ratings.

Of those polled, only 28 percent of likely U.S. voters have a favorable opinion of Boehner, while 60 percent view the Ohio Republican unfavorably.

For Pelosi, a California Democrat, 35 percent have a favorable view of her, compared to 56 percent unfavorable.

And while people have strong opinions about House leadership, the Senate flies under the radar. The poll shows 20 percent of voters say they don’t know enough about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to offer any kind of opinion, while 27 percent say the same about Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

Of those who did weigh in, 54 percent view Reid unfavorably, while 49 percent view McConnell unfavorably.
