58% of Democrats Say Party Needs New Leadership !

Democrats are saying it’s time for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to go, arguing that losses in this year’s special congressional elections show that their party needs new, younger leadership. Most Democrats agree.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 31% of Likely Democratic Voters believe the current national leadership of their party is representative of most Democrats. Most (58%) feel instead that the party needs to find new leaders. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

Among all likely voters, only 23% feel the Democratic leadership is representative of their voter base, while 64% think new leadership is needed. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.

Just 11% of Democrats said in late April that their party’s efforts to oppose President Trump during his first 100 days in office were successful.

Among voters who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s job performance, 55% say Democrats need to find new leaders.

Most voters agreed in late February that it was bad for the country and for the Democratic Party if Democrats continued to totally oppose everything Trump does. Even Democrats were conflicted about this anti-Trump strategy.
