    And the conclusion...""If Congress continues to be unpopular, it will give Republicans a message to use against those Democrats," adds Rothenberg.

    Odds of Congress becoming MORE popular? Not statistically important. Let's just say it approaches zero.

    That's the problem in a nutshell. Whichever party wins thinks that the people support their moronic policies. The people keep voting the bums out, and they are replaced with a new set of bums. ad infinitum.... 3rd parties get nowhere..... I'm trying to think back to the last competent president...and I keep drawing a blank. Reagan comes closest, but he lost it in his second term. Maybe 2012....

    check this out ravi

    73% of GOP Voters Say Congressional Republicans Have Lost Touch With Their Base - Rasmussen Reports™

    looks like the citizens who claim to be republicans feel as if the representatives who claim the same are actually not republican.

    Which party let "big business" run amok? IMHO it was the GOP.
    Which party passed the "American Jobs Creation Act" that gave a tax break to outsource jobs? Yep, the GOP.

    Until the GOP gets its head on straight, the dems will hammer them on jobs.

    I think the Republican party should go the AIG route. My AIG car insurance is now called '21st Century'.

    Just rename the party.

    You guys just do not get it. Who cares if they are not popular. The fact of the matter is incumbents get relected. It does not matter if they are stupid, corrupt, or dead. THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE STILL VOTE FOR THEM!!!!!!!

    So quit the bitching and join the crowd. Keep the things the way they are. Vote for your incumbent. That way you will be with the in crowd.

    And this is not sarcasm. This is the plain, gospel truth.

    Wrong. The 90% of them (and the Democrats) who are not retiring or quitting wil get re-elected. So it will be the same GOP (and Democrats) as it is now. I am amazed all all you experts who do not realize that my politician, my teacher, my company, my whatever, is the best. It is yours who are screwing up. So I, and the majority of the population, will vote for our incumbents. It is up to you to fix your politicians. Mine are just fine.

    Let's just put it all into context, you might be proud of your majority in Congress, Ravi. But, it appears you would be in the minority. From your own poll


    6. Do you approve or disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job? (ASKED OF HALF
    SAMPLE. RESULTS BASED ON 540 INTERVIEWS IN VERSION A. SAMPLING ERROR:
    +/- 4 PERCENTAGE POINTS.)
    Oct. 16-18 ......Apr. 3-5...... Feb. 7-8
    2009* ..........2009 .............2009*
    Approve 29% 35% .............29%
    Disapprove 69% 63% ..........71%
    No opinion 2% 2%................. *
