House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s job is in serious jeopardy — and it could cause her to beg President Donald Trump for help.
For two years, Pelosi and Democratic leadership have promised their party a “blue wave” in 2018.

After Tuesday’s midterm failed to lives up to Democratic expectations, Pelosi’s role as speaker is in serious doubt… unless Trump intervenes on her behalf.
Gains for the Democratic Party in Tuesday’s “must win” election were well-below historic averages for a minority political party. While Pelosi has made it clear that she has no intention of stepping aside as House Speaker, the reality is she may have no choice.
Pelosi barely won her reelection to the speaker position in 2016. Since then, her popularity has only declined.
“At least 12 of the new House Democrats have made statements critical of Pelosi on the campaign trail, ranging from a general call for new leadership to a firm refusal to support her election as speaker,” The Washington Post reported Wednesday. “Seven more Democratic candidates in that category are running in races yet to be called.”
Not all is lost, however. There may still be hope for Pelosi… but it’s from the most unlikely of sources.
Republican congressmen, led by Trump, could follow the advice of the infamous French ruler Napoleon Bonaparte: “Never interrupt your enemy when he’s making a mistake.”
In fact, Trump himself quipped that his fellow Republicans may help get Pelosi back into the speaker position —
In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!

The Democrats will hold an internal party vote on Nov. 28 to decide who they nominate as speaker.
A final House vote is held Jan. 3 — but includes all members of the House, including Republicans.
If the GOP put their support behind Pelosi, with just a few Democrats’ votes they could get her back in charge of the Democratic Party.
Then, conservatives would need to simply stand back and let Pelosi do what she does best — ruin any hopes liberals have of winning the 2020 election.
Should the GOP force Pelosi on the Democrats?
