House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is enjoying a bump in his approval rating, according to the latest Gallup poll.

Forty-two percent of U.S. adults view Boehner, the newly installed GOP Speaker, favorably, and 22 percent have an unfavorable opinion of the Ohio lawmaker, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted over the weekend.

That's a jump from last fall, when Boehner enjoyed a modest 34-27 percent advantage in his popularity.

The new Speaker's numbers track with the honeymoon Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) enjoyed after becoming Speaker in 2007, after Democrats retook control of the House.

Boehner's only officially been on the job for 13 days, and his reaction to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) has done just as much to familiarize himself to voters as have any Republican initiatives, like the repeal of healthcare reform set for a vote in the House on Wednesday.

The House and Senate Democratic leaders, meanwhile, suffer from upside-down approval ratings.

Fifty-four percent of Americans view Pelosi, now the Democratic leader, unfavorably, compared to 33 percent who see her favorably. Forty-one percent have a negative opinion about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), and 25 percent have a positive opinion.

Numbers for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were not included.

The poll also contained some bright news for Democrats, though: President Obama is enjoying an uptick in his numbers, to 53-45 percent positive in the latest poll.

The poll, conducted Jan. 14-16, has a 4 percent margin of error.
