Abortion activist Nancy Pelosi is so controversial that even a majority of Democrats don’t want the former Speaker re-installed into her former position once Democrats officially take over the House of Representatives in January.
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.
A 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.

On “Fox & Friends First” Monday, Democratic strategist Howard Franklin said Pelosi is right to feel confident, because she has a long record of service in the House, and she has proven to be a prolific fundraiser.
A recent profile of Pelosi about the midterm election revealed an interesting strategy that helped Democrats win back the House: Don’t talk about abortion. Democrats decided that abortion and the largest provider of it, Planned Parenthood, were failed talking points after President Donald Trump and pro-life Republicans won unexpected victories in 2016, according to the report.
