DescriptionSpeaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) now ranks as the least-liked congressional leader, with just 31 percent of voters holding a positive opinion of the Republican leader and more than half — 51 percent — saying they view the Ohio congressman unfavorably.

That's the first time in several years that Boehner has slipped below House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in the Rasmussen survey. The Democratic leader held a 37 percent favorability rating in the poll.

The poll was released Friday, just hours after Boehner was unable to rally Republican support behind his "Plan B" proposal, intended to secure additional leverage in "fiscal cliff" negotiations with President Obama. And it comes just a day after President Obama's approval rating in the Gallup daily tracking poll hit 56 percent, the highest mark for the president since October 2009.
