Poll: Nearly 6-in-10 Want Every Member of Congress Replaced
A new national poll has found that an all-time high of 57% of Americans would vote to throw out every member of Congress if given the option in the 2014 elections.
According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released on Wednesday, not only is Congress's disapproval rating (83%) at an all-time high, but respondents are more willing than ever to even throw out their own Representatives.
Respondents were asked:
If there were a place on your ballot that allowed you to vote to defeat and replace every single member of Congress, including your own representative, would you do this, or not?
And 57% responded that they would. The previous high to that question in the poll was 56% in January of 2012.
