House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may need a reality check. She said on the Charlie Rose show Wednesday that she expects Democrats to maintain control of the House and re-elect her as speaker, The Hill
"I have every anticipation that we'll come together in a similar format as we are now, with me as speaker of the House," Pelosi says. Most political analysts say the Democrats have only a slim chance of keeping a majority in the House. And several incumbent Democrats already have vowed to vote against re-electing their California colleague should the party be able to do so.
A new Gallup poll indicates that many voters would be happy to see Pelosi go too. Only 29 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of her, down from 36 percent in May and the lowest rating since she became speaker in 2007, the survey shows.
