The house speakership is without a doubt one tough job. I liken Pelosi's position to that of the former house speaker Boehner. Boehner was trying to keep republicans on one path, then he had a handful of republican hardliner teabaggers pulling in an opposite direction. The situation is similar for Pelosi because while maybe most democrats see things her way, conventional-middle of the road, part of the house democrats are trying to pull to the hard left, and she, as speaker is trying to keep things on an even keel and trying to keep people in a pragmatic and logical path.
In some polls, whomever believes in them, people say that democrats shouldn't try to impeach Trump because there are bigger issues to pursue for a democratic platform. Issues like healthcare, higher wages, immigration, infrastructure and how to get voters to agree on how to get this stuff done. I'm not saying impeaching Trump would be a bad thing, but there's other issues we need to put out in front of that. From my POV, AOC isn't helping with her lack of cohesion and being critical (infighting) with other democrats.
