Can we throw out the Congressional approve/disapprove number forever?

When 410 of 435 Congressmen are reelected, trying to use that 10% approval of Congress for any purpose is hugely disingenuous.

The meaningful question is, "do you like your Congressman?"


  • Better check your numbers - the House only has 435 members, I think.

    But your point stands regardless.

  • You're right. Sorry, wrote too quickly. I'll fix it.

    (PS, I don't know if 25 switches is accurate either. 4 Dems for sure, 21 Repubs?
