House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) heads into the midterm elections less popular among U.S. voters than at any other time in her historic tenure, while the man who wants to take control of her gavel remains a blank slate to nearly half the nation.

After being targeted in a withering set of commercials by Republicans across the country, the first female speaker is now viewed unfavorably by American voters by a 2-to-1 margin, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News Poll. Just 29 percent of registered voters had a favorable view of Pelosi in late October, while 58 percent had an unfavorable view.

House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), who withstood his own assault from President Obama and the Democratic National Committee this fall, would also enter the speakership as an unpopular figure. But, apparently because of his much lower national profile, he is far less disliked than Pelosi: 21 percent of registered voters view him favorably while 35 percent view him unfavorably.

Republicans had spent several years trying to demonize the speaker, with little success. A string of candidates in 2008, 2009 and earlier this year lost at the polls after making Pelosi a central figure in the campaign.
