    That is the bunch that actually thinks Congress has done a good job, a whopping 71% say otherwise.

    It appears the dems are in deep trouble and it is getting worse, not better.

    I want to see some polls on what people think of their own Congressman. That's what really counts.

    There's polling out there for each of those up for re-election this year.

    Suprise! Most incumbents are leading, by large margins. Congress always has low approval ratings - remember, back in 2008 - when the standard Conservative response to anyone talking about Bush's approval rating was to quote the even lower approval ratings for congress.

    Remember the election in 2008? Once again, incumbents won.

    I was surprised about that too.



    And, a tad worried. 10% of Americans are that dumb?

    The problem is in both parties. And it's also in the bullshit candidates the parties tend to run against people they think are "safe" incumbents. My Congresscritter would have been gone at least two cycles ago, if the opposition had just run somebody who wasn't even worse.

    And don't get me started about what the Senate election here looks like it's shaping up to be - Specter vs. Santorum in a new body (although Toomey actually does live in the state - he has that going for him). We already kicked that asshole to the curb once, we don't need his clone.

    With such lousy choices I wonder if I'll even bother voting this time around. Surely we can do better?

    Congress as a whole makes an easy target, I'd like to see this polling as well...
