Despite four years of relentless attacks by the media, the most unpopular politician in the United States isn’t former President Donald Trump, pollsters say.
It’s not Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Or even President Joe Biden.

The most unpopular politician in the United State is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — and it’s not even particularly close.
That’s according to an NBC News poll released this week.
“The poll, conducted among 1,000 adults between Aug. 14 and Aug. 17, found that just 31% of Americans have a positive view of the San Francisco Democrat, compared with 53% who hold negative views towards her (a 22 percentage point split),” The SFGate reported. “For reference, Trump had 38% favorable rating and 49% unfavorable rating, and McCarthy was 15% favorable and 27% unfavorable.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell frequently ranks along with Pelosi as one of the most unpopular politicians in America, but voters weren’t asked about the Kentucky politician in this poll.
Pelosi’s mishandling of the Afghanistan withdrawal won’t help her win back voters. Critics pounced this week after Congress adjourned while over 1,000 Americans remained trapped behind Taliban lines, leaving only the Biden administration to solve the deadly problem.
Pelosi “barely addressed the crisis in Afghanistan this week as the House of Representatives met for a few days,” Fox News’ Tyler Olsen wrote on Thursday.
Pelosi used the time instead to advance Biden’s domestic agenda with a huge $3.5 trillion spending outline.

Even after multiple U.S. servicemembers were confirmed killed in action by suicide bombers in Afghanistan, Pelosi still hasn’t made a public statement on the deteriorating Afghanistan situation.
According to Fox News, at least 10 Marines and soldiers were killed in the Islamic terror attack.
By 2:00 p.m. Eastern time, Pelosi’s social media had put out at least seven messages — none of which were related to Afghanistan and the killed American servicemen.
Nancy Pelosi has tweeted 7 times today.
Not ONE tweet about 4 Americans bing killed in Afghanistan by the incompetence and cruelty of her political party.

The last time Pelosi mentioned Afghanistan was 11 days ago.
