The latest Rasmussen Reports survey delivered bad news to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The survey found that likely voters favor Republicans over Democrats by 13 points, 51%-38%.
Democrats are only favored over Republicans among younger voters, African Americans, Democrats, and liberals, the survey found.
A huge 20-point gap exists among independents, which shows may support a Republican over a Democratic candidate by a margin of 48%-26%.
This gap is reportedly historic in the Rasmussen survey.
“A twenty-point margin of independents for Republicans?” RedState writer T. LaDuke asks. “In short, those numbers are pretty bad for Nancy and her crew.”
Pelosi, who is 81 years old, was also overheard telling people she may not even run for re-election.
Human Events Senior Editor and former Navy intel officer Jack Posobiec aid Pelosi “doesn’t want to be tied to 2022.”
Take a look:
Hearing Pelosi is telling people she is not running for re-election tonight. Doesn't want to be tied to 2022.

This isn’t the first time people have speculated that Pelosi will finally call it quits. During an interview on CNN, Pelosi refused to say she would run for re-election.
Pelosi has not issued a definitive answer about whether she will run for reelection in 2022.
When questioned, she responded, “Oh, you think I’m going to make an announcement right here and now?”
During the CNN interview, Pelosi stated: “Why would I tell you that now? Probably, I would have that conversation with my family first, if you don’t mind,” Pelosi added.
More from RedState:
Most longtime elected officials generally like to call their own shot of when they get to exit the arena. Of course, not all of them get to for a number of reasons, but the smart ones do. That is why Nancy — even before these numbers above were published — was inching towards the exit.
When Pelosi and the Dems were able to retake the House in the 2018 midterms, that should have been a crowning achievement for her personally but she was immediately attacked by brand new members of her caucus-like A.O.C. plus three. These brash newcomers had not even found where the bathrooms were yet on Capitol Hill and they were challenging Nancy in her role as leader…
Pelosi has constantly been fighting with the youngsters in her party who think everything should be done via Twitter and not through negotiation. That Pelosi and the Democrats LOST SEATS last year in the House is not of any concern to AOC and her merry band of Marxist harpies; they just want to sound smart on Tik Tok. This creates a problem for the Speaker and why she allowed official Washington to know that she cut a deal to get the kids off her porch for one more caucus election after the November 2020 election.
With the current President’s policies tanking his approval ratings and the historical trend of the party in the White House losing seats in the midterm election, Nancy Pelosi hears Father Time and the Political Reaper whispers.
These latest poll numbers just confirm the inevitable and with the announcement of longtime political hacks like Pelosi buddy Rep. Jackie Spier and Sen. Patrick Leahy both calling it quits before next year, the writing is on the wall for Madame Speaker. All she has to do now is announce that she is toast and leaving her seat that she has held since 1987.
