Congress has probably never been less popular (which is a bit like saying “Syphilis sees popularity dip”) but I’m going to peremptorily call bullshit on this one.
Only one-quarter of Americans think that their own member of Congress should be reelected, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll. That’s a sharp departure from similar polls conducted before the government shutdown.
In the new survey, 25 percent of respondents said they believe the member of Congress from their district deserves to be reelected, while 47 percent said they did not. Another 27 percent said they weren’t sure.
It would be nice to think that the crazy party would be replaced by the party of generic kleptocrats but considering past history and the fact that the GOP has twelve and a half-months to get outraged about an African-American guy I’m pretty confident crazy will survive…the rest of us, not so much.
