Anti Incumbent Fever High

CNN has the story.

Only a third of U.S. voters think that most members of Congress deserve to be re-elected this year, according to a new national poll. That's the lowest number ever recorded for that question in a CNN survey.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, released Tuesday, indicates that only 34 percent feel that current federal lawmakers deserve re-election, with 63 percent saying no.

There's nothing all that surprising about this story. What is interesting is that there was a similar fever pitch in 2006 and 2008. 1994 was a landmark election. There was a similar sentiment then, but the voters were then generally happy with Congress and the President for a while.

Now, the voters throw the bums out so to speak and they are even less happy with the new bums. What we have learned over the last year and change is that the only thing worse than Republicans in D.C. is Democrats.

There is a difference between 94 and 10 indeed. Unlike in 94, the Republicans are just as unpopular as ever this time around.

Polls show Obama is more trusted than Republicans in attempting to work in a bipartisan manner.

Two things have to happen to address the precarious fiscal postion of the US.

Cut spending AND raising taxes.

These are the conclusions of several independent commissions.

People like you, only contribute the partisan mess America is now in. Try for a little balance.
