Only 20 percent of Democratic Capitol Hill staffers think that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer need to remain in their leadership positions after next year's midterm races.

Punchbowl News anonymously surveyed senior staffers on Capitol Hill and discovered that Democrats were more ready than Republicans to dispense of their leadership teams - although aides from both parties were open to a change.

A poll out Monday discovered that 62 percent of Democratic staffers announced Democratic leadership should change no matter the midterms result.

Another 17 percent announced that Democratic leadership should just be changed if Democrats do unsuccessfully in the midterms.

And finally, 20 percent announced Pelosi and Schumer should stay.

That compares to 28 percent of Republican aides who stated that the party's leaders - House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell - have to be succeeded regardless of the GOP's performance in the midterms.

Twenty-six percent of GOP staffers announced that McCarthy and McConnell should be followed if the Republicans underperform.

While 46 percent of aides surveyed explained that McCarthy and McConnell have to stay.

Pelosi, 81, hasn't announced whether she'll run for another term.

When Pelosi took over the speaker's gavel for a second time in early 2019, there was a push to term-limit the jobs of Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, 82, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, 81 - although the proposal failed.

Pelosi still announced she'd abide by those terms and has stated she considers her second time as speaker as a "bridge to the next generation of leaders."

Schumer only rose to the majority leader position in January, though he served as the top Senate Democrat since 2016.

McConnell won re-election in the 2020 election, so he probably wouldn't retire until his term is up.

McCarthy withdrew from the speaker's race in 2015, when a Right-wing collection of lawmakers looked poised to tank the vote.

McCarthy was denounced for saying that the House's investigation into the Benghazi attack was meant to damage Democrat Hillary Clinton politically.

Rather, Republicans chose Rep. Paul Ryan for House speaker, yet he retired from Congress in 2019, leaving McCarthy again poised for the top spot if Republicans take over the House next November.

Meanwhile, President Biden's job approval rating is plummeting – and it's not only Republicans saying so.

A recent USA TODAY/Suffolk Poll discovered that 59% of voters disapprove of Biden's job performance, while Vice President Kamala Harris' approval rating remains at an awkward 28%. A stunning 46% of those surveyed think that Biden is doing a worse job as President than expected, including 16% who backed him at the ballot box last year.
