Mass 'Your Fired' coming to Congress? Only 8 percent say incumbents should be reelected

If the election were held today, ninety-two percent of people surveyed in a New York Times poll would vote against their congressman.  Most relate they are unhappy with the job congress is doing.  Usually polls show folks are unhappy with congress but like their congressman.  This poll shows a reversal to 1992 levels.

A stunning 8 percent of Americans believe members of Congress should be reelected, a staggering indictment of the legislative branch as Democrats prepare to defend their majority in the midterm elections.

Eighty-one percent of people surveyed in a New York Times poll believe “it’s time to give new people a chance” to serve in Congress, the worst assessment of Congress since the newspaper began polling on this question in 1992.

But the 8 percent figure is staggering. Republicans see it as a reason to throw Democrats out of Congress, while Democrats want to blame Republican obstruction for the overwhelmingly negative feelings reflected in the poll.
