Support for Incumbents Hits All Time Low

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows that just 29% of Americans "now say they are inclined to support their House representative in November, even lower than in 1994, when voters swept the Democrats out of power in the that chamber after 40 years in the majority."

Similarly, a new Gallup poll finds that by 60% to 32%, registered voters say they would rather vote for a candidate for the U.S. House who has never served in Congress than for a candidate who has been in Congress. Additionally, a historically low 50% of voters say their member of Congress deserves re-election.
