Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

New Poll Shows Paul Ryan’s Popularity Taking a Nosedive

A new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll released Thursday showed that with just 31 percent of respondents having a “favorable” impression of him, Ryan is at virtually the same level as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Pelosi, a polarizing Democratic figure, received a 30 percent approval rating in the poll.

The two leaders were at similar levels of unpopularity as well. The poll showed 64 percent view Pelosi unfavorably, while 63 percent view Ryan the same way.

This isn’t the first poll to show plummeting approval ratings for Republican leaders.

A Harvard-Harris poll released last week showed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., with a 19 percent approval rating. Ryan’s favorable rating in that poll was at 33 percent.

This is a stark difference from Ryan’s earlier support. In 2013, a poll looking at who should be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee in 2016 showed that Ryan enjoyed a 69 percent favorable rating.

To many, Ryan’s loss in popularity is not a surprise. Ryan faced criticism after he recently called upon Trump not to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for the children of illegal immigrants.


“One need not be a political scientist to understand these dismal numbers for Ryan and McConnell. Both have been exposed as massive liars and frauds, both have serially-betrayed their base, both are terrible leaders who are unable to use a historic, once-in-a-generation opportunity to get a single thing done,” wrote John Nolte on Breitbart.

“Ever since losing the presidential election with running mate Mitt Romney back in 2012, Ryan has become more and more left-leaning on nearly every important issue. He even went as far as opposing Donald Trump all the way through election day. Now, Ryan gets news he probably should’ve seen coming. … Well deserved, Paul. Well deserved,” John S. Roberts wrote on Young Conservatives.
