    Few Want Members of Congress Re-Elected, Poll Finds

    Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Just 8 percent of Americans want the members of Congress re-elected, according to a CBS News-New York Times poll taken nine months before roughly one-third of the Senate and the entire House face voters.
    The Feb. 5-10 survey found 81 percent of respondents saying the lawmakers shouldn’t receive another term.
    By 80 percent to 13 percent, Americans said members of Congress are more interested in serving special interests than the people they represent.
    Also, 75 percent disapproved of the job Congress is doing, the highest level since 74 percent said they disapproved in October 2008. Congress’s job approval rating was 15 percent in the current survey; it was 12 percent in October 2008.
    The new poll of 1,084 adults had a margin of error of plus- or-minus 3 percentage points.

    I wonder how much this has to do with them not listening to people when they say they do NOT want Obama's healthcare plan
