It looks like the "throw the bums out" sentiment is running very high. A new CNN poll shows a whopping 63 percent are in favor of voting out current members of the House and Senate this November. Only 34 percent think they should be re-elected - a record LOW number. That's the worst performance for Congress in the history of CNN's polling.
The numbers show neither major party getting a strong advantage, with 47 percent saying they will back a Republican in their congressional district, and 45 percent saying they will back a Democrat. CNN polling director Keating Holland, however, says the Democrats will be hurt more because there are more Democratic incumbents.
This is also very interesting and provides some historical context. On the question of whether current members of the House ought to be re-elected, the numbers are lower than in 1994, when Republicans took control of Congress in a 54-seat swing.
The poll also shows President Obama isn't helping his party, as his approval rating stands at just 49 percent. Just 44 percent think he deserves to be re-elected, while 52 percent says he doesn't deserve to be re-elected in 2012.
