Do Democrats Even Want Pelosi As Speaker?

A new poll shows a shocking lack of support for Nancy Pelosi to become speakers – and it’s not because of Republicans. Fox News reports:

Rep. Nancy Pelosi recently said she is “100-percent” confident that she will be the next Speaker of the House, but a new poll found that a majority of Democrats don’t want her in the leadership role she held from 2007 to 2011.

new Gallup poll shows that by 56 percent to 39 percent, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be replaced as their leader in the House.

The question was posed to Democrats in Gallup’s Oct. 15-28 poll, conducted before the party won back control of the House in the midterm elections.

Dozens of Democratic candidates, including many who won their elections last week, have pledged not to support Pelosi for Speaker when the party decides on its leader for the next Congress later this month.

This shows a growing civil war inside the Democrats, with many progressives bucking the establishment. Could this become a problem to the establishment the same way the Tea Party was?
