Why Voters May Keep-the-Bums-In

"After a highly contentious, hugely unproductive session, members of the most unpopular Congress in history will face voters this year and, very likely, win reelection in overwhelming numbers," notes the Los Angeles Times.

"It is a paradox of these discontented times... Public opinion surveys show contempt for Congress reaching unprecedented levels. But as much as they dislike their own representatives, Democrats and Republicans hold members of the opposite party in even lower regard."

"That selective outrage works against the sort of throw-the-bums-out election that would produce wholesale, across-the-board upheaval in the House."
