Across the board, congressional leaders are experiencing negative approval ratings across the board heading into midterm elections.
Obviously House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer are underwater, anyone could have told you that. But is it also possible that the GOP is in for a little more of a fight than its anticipating? House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are also facing some very tough numbers.
Mitch from Kentucky recently polled worst out of these four in a recent Economist survey, with 56% of Americans disapproving of his job performance. Nancy’s the next-worst, according to America, with 49% of America disapproving of her compared to just 36% who approve. Schumer’s next, with a 44% disapproval rating. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is doing the best out of this group but still has his work cut out for him with 43% of America disapproving of his performance.
McCarthy recently gave an interview in which he spoke about the possibility of taking Pelosi’s job as House Speaker.
“I don’t think majorities are given, I think they are earned,” he began. “I think you also should be very truthful to the American public about what would you do with that majority. It’s not just being in the majority for the sake of being in the majority. You’re being in the majority to make America better.”
“We’re just going to have the party of the ideas, the party of the parent, and what we’re going to do is you’ll find later this year we will roll out a Commitment to America—a clear contrast on what our policies are versus the one-party rule. We’ll secure the border. We’ll stop the inflation and runaway spending.”
