Dear Congress: We Hate ALL Of You.

Love, 50% Of The American People:

In fact, when it comes to Congress, many voters would like to start anew. Asked if they would “replace every single member of Congress, including your own representative” if they could, 50% said “yes” while 47% said “no.”

50% is an incredibly huge number for such an extreme position, and suggests that a sizable majority of Americans would be happy to replace a sizable majority of Congress.

Most striking of all:

Those that said yes were asked if they would still be game if the Democrats kept the majority in Congress, and 72% said they would, while 22% said they wouldn’t. Asked if they would go along if replacing all lawmakers would put the Republicans in control, 73% said yes and 24% said no.

The disgust with both parties is so deep that it doesn’t even matter which party is nominally in control.  And quite frankly, the more the healthcare reform debacle unfolds, the more I agree.
