A new USA Today/Gallup poll finds that just 24% of respondents say most members of Congress deserve reelection, the worst result since Gallup began polling the question in 1991.

Looking at another wave: “Fifty-six percent say their own representative deserves another term, similar to the levels just before tumultuous elections in 1994, 2006 and 2010 that changed control of the House or Senate… Less clear is whether voters are ready to blame one party or the other, another ingredient of a ‘wave.'”
