A new poll by Morning Consult/Politico shows a majority of Americans want Nancy Pelosi to be replaced as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

The poll was conducted Dec. 18-20, surveying 1,995 registered voters.

According to the poll results, only 31% of all voters think Pelosi should be elected as speaker when the new Congress begins, while 56% think she should not.

83% of Republicans are opposed to Pelosi staying as speaker and only 22% of Independents say she should remain in her position, while 59% say she should not.

Despite the majority of voters not supporting Pelosi in the election, her team remains confident that she will maintain her speakership.

“Over half of registered voters — 52 percent — hold unfavorable views of both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” said Kyle Dropp, the co-founder and president at Morning Consult. “Each hopes to remain in charge of their respective chambers next year when leadership elections formally take place, but will have to contend with diminished majorities in the new Congress — at best — following the 2020 election.”

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’

CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin  (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”

“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.

“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”

Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”

That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
