If we only had two choices, keep all of the current lawmakers in office or vote out every incumbent, a new Fox News poll shows that 68% of respondents would clean house, while only 20% would keep the status quo. Not surprising considering Congress’ approval rating has been hovering around 18%. What is surprising is that 52% of the respondents who described themselves as Democrats would get rid of all incumbents. All of this spells bad news for incumbents in 2010.
Here’s more interesting, though not shocking, data. 17% think Congress cares what the American people want, compared to the large 79 percent majority who think Congress does whatever it wants to do.
