What shocks me is that the number to keep ’em hit 17%.
Congress was front and center in the national news last week and the American people were far from impressed. If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, 59% of voters would like to throw them all out and start over again. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 17% would vote to keep the current legislators in office.

Mind you, this number would probably be unchanged if the question was “Do you want to toss them all out EXCEPT your own Representative?” – so don’t get too excited by this.
Still. It’d be kind of fun.
Only half (49%) believe that the current Congress is better than individuals selected at random from the phone book. Thirty-three percent (33%) believe a randomly selected group of Americans could do a better job and 19% are not sure (see crosstabs).
