A Speaker of the House needs the support of the American people, since they are leading the “People’s House” and are 3rd in line to the President. Unlike the rest of the representatives in Congress, the Speaker is in a unique and special position.
Pelosi’s war with the CIA has made her (rightfully) damaged goods:
Embattled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has approval ratings nearly as low as Newt Gingrich when he was the primary lightning rod in Congress, a new poll says.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released this afternoon found that the approval of how Pelosi is doing her job as speaker has dropped from 51 percent in January to 46 percent in March to 39 percent now.
