Poll: Most Americans Would Replace Congress

Ad Feedback

A recent telephone survey showed 57 percent of Americans would vote to replace all members of Congress and start all over again.

The new Rasmussen Reports survey also found that only 25 percent of voters say they would keep the current Congress.

Eighteen percent said they were not sure how they would vote.

Voters turned against Congress last fall when the federal bailout programs began.  The lawmakers approval numbers have stayed low ever since.
Only 22 percent think members of Congress have a good understanding of the issue of health care

Seventy-four percent trust their own economic judgment more than lawmakers.

Just 14 percent give Congress good or excellent review for their overall performance, while only 16 percent think it is very likely that Congress will address the most important problems in the U.S.

But 75 percent say members of Congress care more about helping themselves than helping the people.
