Public Views Tea Party More Favorably Than Pelosi, Reid

Friday, 13 Aug 2010 03:06 PM

Although tea party popularity registered in an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll may be nothing to write home about, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid shouldn’t even reach for pen and paper.

The poll of 1,000 adults between Aug. 5 and 9 showed that 30 percent view the grass-roots conservative groups very or somewhat positively, while 34 percent have very or somewhat negative impressions, according to a political blog at TheHill.com.

Meanwhile, Pelosi gets positive marks from 21 percent, and 46 percent view the California Democrat negatively. And Reid just broke into the double digits of positive readings, at 11 percent, although his negative reading wasn’t as bad as Pelosi’s.

The poll results echoed others, with 32 percent saying that this Congress' overall performance and accomplishments are "one of the worst."
