Move over, John Boehner.

According to a new Gallup poll, 48 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi.
That compares to a 41 percent unfavorable rating for Boehner, 38 percent for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and 34 percent for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Those surveyed also voted Pelosi the most polarizing of the four congressional leaders.

Pelosi was an easy target for Republicans in the 2010 elections as House speaker, and many still tied their opponents to her in the elections last year.
In fact, former Gov. Mark Sanford is debating a cardboard cut-out of Pelosi today as he campaigns for a special congressional race in South Carolina, claiming his Democratic opponent only agreed to one debate.
"Because my opponent is refusing joint appearances to answer questions about where she stands on the issues, all we can assume is that she is going to be a reliable vote for the Pelosi-Obama agenda, were she to be elected," Sanford said in a statement.
