House Speaker John Boehner is the most popular – or at least the least unpopular – of the four party leaders in Congress, a new Rasmussen Reports survey
Fellow Republican Mitch McConnell also tops the two Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, in the public’s opinion.
But all four have higher negative ratings than positive, Rasmussen says, confirming how the public has lost faith in the legislative branch of government.
A total of 37 percent of those surveyed had a positive view of Boehner, but 42 percent had an unfavorable view of the Ohio representative.
McConnell, the Senate minority leader from Kentucky, had the best unfavorable rating with 36 percent feeling that way, while 32 percent viewed him favorably.
Pelosi, the Californian who is minority leader in the House, had by far the highest unfavorability figure – 60 percent – but her favorability rating stood at 31 percent.
Bottom in the popularity stakes was Reid, the Senate majority leader from Nevada, who is viewed favorably by just over one-quarter of those who responded – 27 percent. His unfavorability figure stood at 48 percent.
The Rasmussen Reports poll of 1,000 likely voters was conducted April 8-9.
