Comparative Demonology

So far, Republicans have more effective demons than Democrats. Byron York writes in The Washington Examiner:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's negative ratings have hit an all-time high in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. A full 50 percent of those surveyed have a somewhat or very negative impression of Pelosi, while just 22 percent have a somewhat or very positive impression of her.

Finally, the poll found that House Minority Leader John Boehner remains relatively unknown, even after weeks of targeting by the Obama White House. Fifty percent of those surveyed don't know who Boehner is, while his ratings are 14 percent positive and 17 percent negative.

Mitch McConnell is at 50% "don't know name/not sure." The "tea party movement" is 30% positive, 36% negative, 21% neutral and 13% dk/ns.
