NANCY ALERT: DEMOCRATIC VOTERS CRAVE ‘NEW LEADERS’
“Some Democrats are saying it’s time for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to go, arguing that losses in this year’s special congressional elections show that their party needs new, younger leadership. Most Democrats agree,” says a new Rasmussen Reports survey, which finds that 58 percent of all likely Democratic voters say the party needs new blood.
Less than a third — 31 percent — believe the current national leadership of their party is representative of most Democrats.
Among all likely U.S. voters, 64 percent advises the Democrats to get themselves a new crop of leaders, while only 23 percent feels the Democratic leadership is representative of the party’s voter base.
It’s a cautionary tale for Republicans as well. The party constantly has fended off accusations from partisan rivals that there is division and discord within the GOP ranks. So?
Among likely Republican voters themselves, 45 percent say their party needs new leaders — and a worrisome 60 percent of all voters agrees — not a good sign. Another 48 percent of the GOP voters, at least, say their party’s leadership is representative of most Republicans; only 30 percent of all voters agree.
A new poll finds that Democrats are seeking younger and newer leadership over the long tenure of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
