Wait and See...

The media, leading up to the 2012 election, will paint a picture of Pelosi; blaming her for all the bad things in our government. It will be an attempt to remove the heat from Fearless Leader. If she's even remotely intelligent, she will see this for herself and either retire or just not run for reelection when her time comes around.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's negative ratings have hit an all-time high in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. A full 50 percent of those surveyed have a somewhat or very negative impression of Pelosi, while just 22 percent have a somewhat or very positive impression of her.

Pelosi's negative rating is precisely the same as oil giant BP, which has taken a public relations beating in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill. While 50 percent of those surveyed view BP negatively, just 12 percent view the company favorably -- a rating even lower than Pelosi's.

Pelosi is less popular than her Republican predecessor in the speaker's chair, Newt Gingrich. The poll finds that 35 percent of those surveyed have a negative impression of Gingrich, while 24 percent view him positively.

Pelosi is also less popular than 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who is viewed negatively by 48 percent of those surveyed, and positively by 30 percent.

The Journal/NBC poll found that former president Bill Clinton has the highest popularity rating among those measured, with a 55 percent positive rating and a 23 percent negative rating. President Obama was next, with a 47 percent favorable rating and a 41 percent unfavorable rating.

Finally, the poll found that House Minority Leader John Boehner remains relatively unknown, even after weeks of targeting by the Obama White House. Fifty percent of those surveyed don't know who Boehner is, while his ratings are 14 percent positive and 17 percent negative
