While 6 out of 10 disapprove of how President Obama is doing his job, 9 out of 10 disapprove of Congress according to an Associated Press-GfK poll.

More than half of Americans, 54 percent, disapprove of both.

Among this group, 94 percent say the nation is heading in the wrong direction. About 7 in 10 say someone new ought to win in their congressional district and about half say they are completely certain they’ll vote this November. Most, 57 percent, are Republicans or say they lean that way, and 51 percent want to see the GOP wind up in control of Congress this fall.

    I am a firm believer in Term Limits, but we know both sides wont vote themselves out.

    Increase congressional terms to 4 years, with a 16 year limit. and limit senators to 18 years.

    Apparently this is the trend as an nbc/wall street journal poll shows
    the same results.

      It’s insane. People are angry at a dysfunctional, do-nothing Congress, and they want the same people to take over Congress? What will it take for people to wake up?

    Nuts. Why would anyone want the GOP in charge of Congress? Do these people have a death wish? Haven’t the last 30 years, and particularly the last 5 years, proven that the “fiscally conservative” GOP are anything but? Hasn’t the GOP done enough damage to our nation, to our poor people, to our veterans, to our seniors? It’s ludicrous to think the GOP will change its stripes.
