Pelosi under fire from Democrats: 'It's time for her to go'

"And usually they go after the most effective leaders, because they want to take us, diminish the opportunity that we have".
If she is so incredibly toxic in districts like Georgia's sixth and South Carolina's fifth, at some point Democrats have to ask whether Pelosi - as impressive a fundraiser as she is known to be - is more of a liability than an asset. Today, it controls the party.
Pelosi's allies have pointed out that numerous negative impressions that Republicans have of her are equally true of House Speaker Paul Ryan among Democratic voters. Trump wrote, referring to Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. They just don't know how to make it happen. Second-in-command Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., is 78, and number three Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., is 76.
Georgia's 6th shares numerous same characteristics as the districts that Democrats believe will pave their way to a House majority in 2018. "If the [marginal swing from November] holds true in a year, we sweep the House". Consistently, she's been underwater on her favorability, which is to say that her negatives are bigger than her positives, so her net favorability is in minus territory. This is the average net favorability for Pelosi back to 2012 (when the Pollster data begins).
It's emblematic of the one campaign skill that Republicans have consistently mastered - demonizing their political opponents. But it is the party that is at fault within it's own self.
Turnout was high for a special election with over 225,000 votes cast.

But Handel won the race, which turned out to be the most expensive House race in history, and now some elected Democrats are pointing their finger at Pelosi. "People in OH don't grab me about Russian Federation at all when I'm home", Ryan said.
For the last several elections Democrats have tried turning Texas, Georgia and other fast-growing "red" states "blue", or at least a competitive "purple". Pelosi's PAC gave $496,000.
Lost in the attention afforded to Georgia was a little-noticed special election next door.
"We need a winning strategy and I think the first step to getting to a winning strategy is a change in leadership", Rep. Kathleen Rice told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day" Thursday. She is a great leader.
But with Republicans re-energized after the Georgia win, they're praying she doesn't go anywhere anytime soon.
Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, "in every corner of our caucus, we're concerned".
In the wake of the Democrats' loss in the Georgia special election, some in the party are calling for a new message and new leadership. "The Republicans can't play this level of defense on all of them".
But since the media collectively declared it a referendum on Trump-and would have gone haywire if Ossoff had won-there is a reckoning about what the Democratic Party stands for.
On ABC's World News Tonight, Anchor David Muir and Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega simply brushed over the results of the election, including the criticism of the party and Pelosi.
"When it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun", Pelosi said.
