Democrats' hopes to take House could stumble in Minnesota

Democrats' hopes to take House could stumble in Minnesota

In the midst of a contentious midterm election season, President Trump took aim at Nancy Pelosi on Friday, pleading with Democrats not to "distance" themselves from the House minority leader.

The new American Barometer poll released Thursday by Hill.TV and HarrisX found that just 51 percent of Democrats surveyed think that House Democrats should keep Pelosi as their leader.

Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in November to retake the House, but it'll be hard if they lose districts they now hold.

A speaker's race would be a different animal, however, because not only would Pelosi need majority support from the House Democratic Caucus, she would need a majority of the House to vote to elect her speaker on the floor.

"Now she is the number one albatross around the Democrats' necks", Chaffetz said, adding the only reason Pelosi is still a leader in her party is because she has been successful at fundraising.
