New Gallup Poll: Run, Congressional Incumbents, Run…to the Nearest Rehab Center
Posted by Print

A new Gallup poll previews “Nightmare on Nancy’s Street” for the upcoming midterm elections.

Several excerpts: 

A record-low percentage of U.S. voters – 28% — say most members of Congress deserve to be re-elected.  The previous low was 29% in October 1992.”

Additionally, 65% of registered voters – the highest in Gallup history, and by far the highest in any recent midterm year – now say most members of Congress do not deserve re-election.”

Voters anti-incumbent mood is like nothing Gallup has seen in the past four midterm election cycles.  While that could have a negative impact on incumbents from both parties, the greater exposure of the Democrats by virtue of their majority status means greater risk for their candidates.”

So here’s our question:  If you are a Democrat Congressperp and voted for ObamaCare, Stimulus I through XXIII, Bailouts, Cap and Trade and the Kick Your Constituents’ Dog Bill, would you go near your doctor’s office…your bank…your service station…or even that proverbial Main Street, USA?
