Rassmussen Reports:

65% Favor Getting Rid of Entire Congress and Starting Over
Thursday, October 28, 2010

Let’s face it: Most Americans don’t have much use for either of the major political parties and think it would be better to dump the entire Congress on Election Day.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters say if they had the option next week, they would vote to get rid of the entire Congress and start all over again. Only 20% would opt to keep the entire Congress instead. Fifteen percent (15%) aren’t sure.

Of course, the Political Class strongly disagrees. While 84% of Mainstream voters would opt to get rid of the entire Congress, 64% of the Political Class would vote instead to keep them all.

Not surprisingly, 82% of Republicans and 78% of unaffiliateds say dump them all. Despite their party’s control of both the House and Senate, Democratic voters are fairly evenly divided: 44% say it’s better to keep the entire Congress, but 38% would prefer to give all the national legislators the heave-ho.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of all voters have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party after its two years of controlling both the White House and Congress. But 53% view the Democrats unfavorably.

As for the party out of power but knocking on the door, just 29% view Republicans favorably, while 54% hold an unfavorable opinion of them.

Only 61% of Republicans offer a favorable opinion of the GOP, a figure perhaps reflective of the fact that most Republican voters believe their party leaders are out of touch with the base.

Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats have a favorable opinion of their party.

Yes and term limits for politicians at every level of government.

Your strategy is a strategy for victory for the other side.

I think you are a fucking plant.

Pastorious, Yes, I've heard that theory about 3rd party votes bleeding support from the Republicans. But the Democrats have whined about the same thing. You're response here convinces me that you are part of the problem, a front guy for the globalists, since the Bushes are notorius New World Order proponents and you appear to be a staunch Republican supporter. That is extremely disappointing, since I have always thought IBA was on the leading edge of resisting tyranny. But maybe that only applies to MUSLIM tyranny, eh?

Pastorius said...

Oh, now I see where you're coming from.

I thought you were some guy who was trying to convince Conservatives to not vote for Conservatives.

Pastorius, Not at all, I'm just trying to find a way to do what was proposed, vote ALL the bums out and start fresh. This is a hugely daunting task to say the least. My proposal was the only action that I could see that can be taken, at the moment.

It might not solve the problem entirely, but I'd rather get rid of Pelosi, Reid, and the like at this point.
