Nancy Pelosi is actually more popular with voters than Donald Trump, according to a private GOP survey.

Oh, this is going to leave a mark on Trump’s dimpled orange ass.

President Trump likes to mock Nancy Pelosi, but a private survey conducted for the Republican National Committee finds that she’s actually more popular—and beats the president when the midterm election is framed as a contest between the two.

The internal poll, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies and obtained by Bloomberg Businessweek, asks registered voters who they support “when the November election is framed by Trump and Pelosi.” Overall, respondents prefer Pelosi-aligned candidates over Trump-aligned candidates by 5 points, 50 percent to 45 percent. Among independents only, Pelosi still prevails by a 4-point margin. The poll was completed on Sept. 2.

Trump routinely criticizes the 78-year-old Democratic House minority leader. In a sarcastic Aug. 10 tweet, he wrote: “Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi. She is a wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad, but who should definitely be given a 4th chance. She is trying very hard & has every right to take down the Democrat Party if she has veered too far left!”

Pelosi hasn’t hesitated to return fire. “Every single day, I find myself asking: what do the Russians have on @realDonaldTrump personally, financially, & politically? The answer to that question is that only thing that explains his behavior & his refusal to stand up to Putin,” she tweeted on July 16.

What makes the internal poll results so tantalizing—and embarrassing for Trump—is that Republicans have spent years gleefully caricaturing Pelosi as the embodiment of effete, out-of-touch coastal liberalism. That helped power Republican gains in the past two midterm cycles, 2010 and 2014.

Yeah, trotting out the Pelosi memes may have helped Republicans in the past, but that was before the American people saw who they would put into the White House if they had their choice. 

So bring it on GOP.

You use your scare tactics featuring Nancy Pelosi, and we will simply show this picture over and over again.

Then let’s see who comes out ahead in 2018.

    I’ve always had enormous respect for Nancy Pelosi. She was a great House leader – extremely effective and that’s what the GOP hates about her. That and the fact that she’s a woman.

    Republican presidents had appointed people like David Souter and Anthony Kennedy who ended up, in the right-wing’s memorable turn of phrase, as “squishes.” Justices who could not be relied upon to vote the way the conservative establishment wanted them to vote. So they undertook what the Times called “a three-decade project unparalleled in American history to install a reliable conservative majority on the nation’s highest tribunal.” ” “fealty” that will insure that he does exactly what they want him to do. It’s usually men who are grOOmed in this manner. It didn’t used to happen with women, although it does now.
    But it’s usually a guy thing that involves stuff like prep schools and college fraternities and secret societies such as $kull and BoneR’$.”
    “What’s different is that these guys have something to offer other than rules and boundaries. They have connections. They have access. They can get you backstage. They reek of POWER, because they know what POWER is. And they’re going to teach you its secrets — where the POWER is, how to get close to it, how to learn about it, and ultimately how to get it. How to be POWERful like they are.

    The thing is, you must do it their way. They make a deal with you: They’ll tell you the secrets of POWER if you do two things.
    One, don’t share the secrets with anyone else until you get POWERful and it’s your turn to pass the secrets on. And two, use the POWER the way we tell you to use ~IT~.”

    “my senior year, I made the fateful decision to file some paperwork with the Pentagon seeking to overturn West Point’s long-time regulation which required all cadets to attend church every Sunday morning.”
    “What I realize now is that I was violating the cardinal rule you must follow if you are to be successfully grOOmed: when you have to chose between principle and POWER, you know what to do. Chose POWER.
    LATER>”I wrote a story that gave me the opportunity to interview him in his office at the Pentagon. ”
    “I asked him, didn’t he think it was unfair to the rest of the guys in the class, the hundreds he didn’t single out to be grOOmed for POWER?
    I actually said to him, what about the other 795? Didn’t he think what he did was unfair to them?
    Tears spilled down his cheeks. He reached into a drawer and pulled out a bottle of pills and shook two of them into his hand and took them with a glass of water. “I just wish I could have helped all of you,” sobbing.”

    I stood up and walked to the door of his office. “That’s bullshit,” I said to him.

    That’s grOOming.”

    She will be Speaker of the House come January. And if the timing is perfect, she might just be the first woman president of this country when both Trump and Pence are impeached simultaneously when the Mueller investigation is complete. She’s no Hillary Clinton but she is perfectly capable. We could do a lot worse.
