Although House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was the one ousted from Congress in a GOP primary defeat this week, a new poll finds that the other four top congressional leaders are comparably unpopular on the national stage.

The survey by HuffPost/YouGuv found that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are all seen more unfavorably than favorably by the general public.

Here is a snapshot of the findings, via HuffPost:

The poll surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults from June 11-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
