Dropped the ball
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.
