Sheehan vs. Pelosi: Fresh Poll Says The Speaker Far More Popular

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Fresh polling data by Rasmussen Reports shows Cindy Sheehan is not popular with the American people. Even 39% of Democrats now have an unfavorable view of the grieving Iraq War mother. Sheehan wants President Bush impeached and says she will challenge Speaker Nancy Pelosi if the House fails to bring charges. Since the House is not likely to act on her demand, Sheehan would probably get crushed like a walnut under the Speaker's gavel because 39% of Americans view Pelosi favorably.

Maybe Sheehan should consider another race -- like trying to sign up as U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich's running mate.

Rasmussen found Sheehan is viewed favorably by only 22% of Americans, down from 31% in 2005, the year her anti-war protests near Bush's Texas ranch shaped her public image as a leading critic of Washington's handling of the war.

"Democrats have mixed views of the anti-war activist. Thirty-four percent have a favorable opinion while 39% say the opposite. Among Republicans, the numbers are 9% favorable, and 72% unfavorable. As for those not affiliated with either major party, 21% offer a positive assessment of Sheehan, while 42% have a negative opinion."

Rasmussen added that 39% of Americans agree with Sheehan that Bush should be impeached.


  1. She's more popular than Bush and the Congress. She just needs to beat her in the district and why would she take on Kucinich who is right on the war and would support impeachment?

    Polls are for sheeple like you Sloat. Why don't you go back to tabloid pictures?

  2. Hi Anon --

    Sheeple -- what a great word.

    I didn't say she should "take on Kucinich" as you put it. I said she should might think about getting on the ticket with him as his veep, or No. 2.

  3. Run Cindy run!

    Let them split the San Fran vote and accidentally elect a Republican if there are any left there.

  4. Far more likely to elect a Green than a Republican.

  5. It doesn't matter what the country's opinion of Sheehan is, it only matters what the very liberal, activist people of San Francisco think, and for that reason Pelosi should be very scared.

  6. Who cares what the American people think--what matters is what the people in Pelosi's district think. Is somebody polling them? San Francisco is super liberal. Sheehan must have a legitimate shot. Serves Pelosi right for betraying us--she could have stopped the Iraq war by cutting funding but she didn't, and she didn't do anything about Bush's torture or other impeachable offenses. What is a "higher crime" than building gulags and torturing people?
