A stunning survey from Gallup is raising serious new questions over the political future of potential Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; showing a whopping 56% of Democrats don’t want her to lead the party going forward.
Even worse, just 39% of those surveyed think Pelosi should regain her former position as Speaker once Democrats retake control of the House in January.
“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,” writes Fox News. “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.”
“I do believe she’s got a lot of reason to expect that even some of the people who have said less than positive things about her coming back into the role will ultimately vote to support her,” said one party insider.

CRINGE WORTHY: Ocasio-Cortez Offers INCOHERENT DEFENSE of Nancy Pelosi
Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez froze when asked about the future leadership of the Democratic Party this week; stuttering through a series of incoherent sentences when pressed on Pelosi’s political ambitions.
Cortez was speaking with CNN when she desperately tried to deflect questions on whether she’d back House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House should Democrats retake control of Congress this fall.
“I think absolutely right now.. She is the leader of..no no, um, she is speaker..or rather leader Pelosi..hopefully we’ll see..she’s ah..she’s the current leader of the party and..the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House and Senate,” said Cortez.

LIBERAL LOGIC: Pelosi Slams Sessions’ Firing… Demanded his Removal in 2017
Potential Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi slammed the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week; conveniently ignoring her calls for the senior Trump aide’s removal in March 2017.
Pelosi weighed-in on Sessions’ abrupt resignation on social media just minutes after his announcement, saying “It is impossible to read Attorney General Sessions’ firing as anything other than another blatant attempt by @realDonaldTrump to undermine & end Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.”

Pelosi’s comments are in stark contrast to her heated rhetoric early last year, when she demanded Sessions’ “resignation or removal” from office.
“We are far past recusal. Jeff #Sessions lied under oath. Anything less than resignation or removal from office is unacceptable,” she tweeted.
