A Change Is Gonna Come (continued)
With barely seven weeks until the midterm elections, Americans have
an overwhelmingly negative view of the Republican-controlled Congress,
with substantial majorities saying that they disapprove of the job it
is doing and that its members do not deserve re-election, according to
the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
The disdain for Congress is as intense as it has been since 1994, when Republicans
captured 52 seats to end 40 years of Democratic control of the House
and retook the Senate as well. It underlines the challenge the
Republican Party faces in trying to hold on to power in the face of a
surge in anti-incumbent sentiment.
