House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., brushed off the some of the clout of some of the more left-wing members of her party during an interview that aired Sunday evening.

Pelosi, appearing on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” was asked about her ability to unify Democrats in the House with the growth in popularity of the far-left flank of the party, including Democratic socialists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi said. Host Lesley Stahl pushed back on that notion, pointing out that there is a larger “progressive” movement in the party.

Socialism may be popular with some groups, such as young people who don’t know better, but it’s not with the general public at large
