A new poll from NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows that one politician lost big during the shutdown, but shockingly, that politician wasn't President Donald Trump -- it was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
In a strange twist of fate that must befuddle those who cheered Pelosi's hard line on the subject of the shutdown, refusing to budge even an inch on the border wall in order to force the President to re-open the government without concessions on the part of Democrats, Pelosi's favorables tanked during her standoff.
In the previous poll, Pelosi had nearly a 50% approval rating. In the most recent poll, her rating however, that number tanked nearly 20 points, leaving her competing for "least liked politician" with the President, whose numbers moved only twelve points.
Those who reported having a "negative view" of Pelosi increased by six points, even as both Trump's and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's numbers stayed relatively the same.
