Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) Unpopularity Could Clinch Victory for GOP
Pollster Frank Luntz said in past 18 months that he has been tracking the GOP’s chances to keep the House after the mid-term elections, the party’s numbers are currently at their strongest.
Also working in Republicans’ favor was the fact swing voters do not like the idea of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, 78 anni, retaking the Speaker’s Gavel, should Democrats prevail in the mid-term elections.
What Republicans must do to clinch the 2018 Fall elections was to elect a new House speaker, Luntz maintaines
“I’ve been tracking this on a weekly basis going back now for a year-and-a-half and these are the best numbers that the GOP has had in the last year,” Mr. Luntz said in a TV interview rcently
“Quite frankly, if Republicans could find some way to engineer a vote over who would be speaker of the House in January 2019, if they could engineer that vote, I would be prepared to say right now that the Republicans would keep the majority, because there are so many people out there — swing voters — who do not want Pelosi as speaker. That one action would make a difference,” he continued.
Female voters, in particular, held sway in the Fall mid-terms because they were leaning toward the Republican Party, primarily because they were abandoning the Democratic Party’s “negativity,” Mr. Luntz explained.
“One of the reasons is that women, working women, women with children, have begun to leave the Democratic Party. It’s not that they are pro-Republican, but what they see among the Democrats is the same kind of negativity that turned them off in previous elections,” he continued.
Mr. Luntz also said Nancy Pelosi was “the least popular credible figure” among her fellow lawmakers.
Have a terrific Memorial Day weekend
