The DKOS had reader polls on the performance of Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, and the results are interesting, to say the least. Apparently they really approve of Dean, approve of Reid less so, and totally disapprove of Pelosi, whose numbers look like a Kos reader poll on Bush.
This is interesting, because of the three, Pelosi is the most ‘left’ (at least according to my perceptions) of the three, and the least popular. All are equally partisan, although the screaming left partisanship is best embodied by Dean. So while he is the least ‘liberal,’ he is the most partisan, and the most popular with the Kos reader.
It would be interesting to look at a Red State poll of Republican leaders. My bet is that the least popular would be Frist.
