Congress, Pelosi, not popular in Cali, says survey

A Field Research poll finds that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not very popular in California, but that her Democratic senate counterparts are faring a little better in the eyes of voters.

The survey found that 44 percent of registered voters in the state do not approve of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's job performance, up from 35 percent in March.

Pelosi is a Democrat who represents the San Francisco area. It's the most negative score the Field Research poll has given her since she took the leadership post.

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, on the other hand, got a disapproval rating of just 35 percent from California voters, a slight increase from 32 percent she earned in March. Sen. Barbara Boxer, also a Democrat, did not fare quite as well and earned a disapproval rating of 37 percent, a six percent increase from March.

The worst score of all, however, was earned by Congress. Of the more than 1,000 registered surveyed, 66 percent said they disapprove of the job lawmakers are doing, a whopping 13 percent increase from seven months ago. Just 23 percent of those surveyed in October said they approve of the job Congress is doing, while 11 percent said they had no opinion.
