Confidence in Congress Drops to New Low


More troubling for incumbents is the continuing downward trend on two other questions. Just 20% now think their representative in Congress is the best person for the job. That’s down only slightly from 22% in March, but it’s the lowest finding in surveys since November 2009 when 33% felt this way.

And yet less than 20% of the 435 Congressional races this year are considered to be at all competitive.
