New Poll Spells Doom for Incumbents

Time to start job hunting, senators. About six in ten voters want to fire their own congressperson, according to a new poll from The New York Times/CBS. That number is higher than in 1994, when the Republicans took control of the Senate, and swept a decades-old Democratic majority out of the House of Representatives. The nationwide telephone poll shows greater dissatisfaction and great enthusiasm about the election among Republicans than Democrats. Also, significantly younger voters are paying attention to this election than older ones.
