POLL: Nearly Three Fourths Of People, Half Of Dems Think Pelosi Needs To Go
A new poll released on Thursday revealed that nearly 75% of the people surveyed believe that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi should be replaced come November.
73% of the 2,021 registered voters think that Pelosi should not be retained as the leader of the Democratic Party.
49% of the registered Democrats polled said that they believe the party should look for new leadership. That number balloons to 91% when accounting only for the Republicans who were asked. Independents came in at 79% in favor of going a different direction.
The new American Barometer poll released Thursday by Hill.TV and HarrisX conducted the survey. The survey interviewed registered voters on August 3-4. The margin of error is 3.07%.
Multiple Democratic congressional candidates have already stated that they would not support Pelosi in the event they were elected. In particular, Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dodged questions about Pelosi during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night.
