Poll: Republicans view Kim Jong Un more favorably than Nancy Pelosi

A new poll shows that Republicans have a marginally more favorable view of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un than they do House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi.

According to the Ipsos survey conducted for the Daily Beast, 19 percent of Republicans view Kim favorably while on 17 percent view Pelosi favorably.

With 68 percent saying they have an unfavorable opinion of Kim while 72 percent said the same of Pelosi.

The Hill reports this could be because Republicans are often critical of Pelosi and use her in their campaign ads.

Pelosi has also been critical of the Trump administration's new zero-tolerance immigration policy that has in turn led to the separation of children from their parents.

At the same time, President Donald Trump just met with the North Korean leader and has made it clear through tweets that the meeting was successful.

The Hill reports, Trump and Kim signed a joint statement that said the United States would provide security guarantees in exchange for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
