In Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, only six GOP appointees of twenty-nine seats

As the Trump Administration focuses on its important Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, we are also reminded that of the twenty-nine members of the important U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, based in San Francisco, only six of the members were appointed by Republican presidents, resulting in the most liberal and highly overturned circuit court in the nation.  Sixteen of the current members were appointed by Democrats, and the vacancy rate is the highest in the nation, with seven positions not yet filled by President Trump.

Nancy Pelosi Facts

California’s Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Leader in the House who represents a San Francisco Congressional District, is 77 years old.  She will be 78 on March 28, 2018.

She was born in Baltimore, Maryland and attended college on the East Coast.

She served as Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011.  A CBS News poll conducted in her last year as Speaker in 2010 found 11% of voters nationally approved of the job she was doing, and 37% had an unfavorable opinion of her as Speaker.

Pelosi was first elected to Congress in 1987, almost 31 years ago, defeating gay San Francisco politician Harry Britt in a special election.  She has not participated in a candidate debate in her election campaigns for over 30 years.  Pelosi wins re-election easily in her heavily Democratic district.

In November, 2016, Pelosi was challenged for the Leader position of the Democrats by Congressman Tim Ryan.  She defeated Ryan by a vote of 134-63.

Pelosi was challenged again in June, 2017 after Democrats lost four consecutive special elections to the House.  Pelosi put down the challenge.  When asked specifically why she should stay on as House Minority Leader after numerous Democratic seats were lost, Pelosi responded,  “Well, I’m a master legislator. I am a strategic, politically astute leader. My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I’m able to attract the support that I do.”

Republicans have erased the Democratic advantage on the generic congressional ballot in 2018 in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that, for the first time since April, also shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating equaling the percentage of voters who disapprove of his job performance.

Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate.

Most Californians Want Their Elected Officials to Work With Trump – UC Berkeley Poll

California’s elected Democratic leaders have vowed to “resist” the Trump Administration.  Attorney General Xavier Becerra says he will invoke legal action to cut any funding to California, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee says he will “stand up to Trump,” Governor Jerry Brown has said California is “not turning back,”  Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to impeach the new President, and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has embraced the notion of “resistance” to the Trump Administration at every turn.

But these Democratic leaders appear out of tune with sentiments of Californians overall according to a new UC Berkeley poll which reveals that, although Donald Trump’s popularity in the state is at 39%, a clear majority of 53% of Californians would like their elected officials to work with Trump to try to fix the nation’s problems.  The poll also revealed that while Californian’s oppose the Trump Administration on many issues, that when it comes to infrastructure reform and improving the economy, they favor Trump’s approach.
