Surprise: Pelosi Most Unpopular Member of Congress

Just when you thought no one could possibly be worse than Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), you remember there is always Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Fifty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. What’s more, a whopping 41 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the Maryland native.

What is there not to like about Pelosi? After all, Planned Parenthood awarded her with its “highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions” for her work in support of abortion. Of course, being a “Catholic” the Catholic Church ruled that she may not take Communion due to her unorthodox stance.

There was also that time that Pelosi asserted that America’s Founding Fathers would have supported Obamacare:

"To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness."

It seems that even after passing the bill, Pelosi never did quite “find out what’s in it.”

On the whole things have gotten so bad even Democrats are starting to turn from their newly-elected House Minority Leader.

If you still have doubts about the people’s choice award, just watch:
