Dropped the ball

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

It’s not just Repub­li­cans who are crit­i­cal of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Cal­i­for­nia.

Sacra­mento Bee re­porter John Hill writes that Mrs. Pelosi’s “own party is turn­ing on her, ap­par­ently be­cause of a per­cep­tion among Cal­i­for­nia Democrats that she has not done enough to shake up the sta­tus quo in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.”

Mark DiCamillo, polling di­rec­tor of a new Field Poll, is quoted as ex­plain­ing that Mrs. Pelosi and Congress as a whole have fallen short of voter ex­pec­ta­tions since tak­ing over both cham­bers.

“For Pelosi, it was the first time the poll showed more peo­ple dis­ap­prov­ing than ap­prov­ing of her per­for­mance — 40 per­cent to 35 per­cent, with 25 per­cent hav­ing no opin­ion,” he says.
