I suspect the Holy Father doesn’t mind, if he has even caught wind of the news. Likely ditto for at least the previous two popes.
The three of them and I would likely agree the Ministry of Peter is not one of popularity, but rather unity and pastoring. It’s likely that if a pope had single-digit popularity, but a billion-plus Catholics were out among the needy, the poor, the throwaway persons, and laboring in the field hospital, the Gospel message and mission would likely be furthered in an even more efficacious way than millions of pilgrims attending papal mega-events, then returning to life-as-usual afterward.
The tone is pretty vicious in the links on the Pewsitter aggregator. And those are just the headlines. I don’t even click on those anymore.
I think if conservatives or other folks disillusioned with Pope Francis have a problem with anything about him, so what? The mission is to spread the Gospel of Christ, not the Gospel of Popularity.
