The decision by longtime House Speaker and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) to retire from her post in leadership of her party is a popular one.
Sixty-eight percent (68%) say they approve of her stepping back from the leadership position after her party suffered defeat in the Midterm elections. That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
Seventeen percent (17%) say it was a bad decision for her to give up the top role among Democrats in the House.
Pelosi, 82, would have gone from being Speaker to a far less influential position, House Minority Leader, with the swearing in of the new Republican majority Congress in January.
