New Rassmussen poll data:
As a matter of fact, a plurality of voters 41% think a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress. Thirty-eight percent 38% disagree, but another 20% are not sure.
The number who say a randomly selected group would do a better job than the current Congress has ranged from a low of 33% to a high of 45%. In May, the findings were reversed, with just 33% who believed a randomly selected group would do a better job than Congress and 45% who disagreed.It may be hard, though, to find people who will actually take the job. Americans still list being a member of Congress as the least favorable on a list of nine professions.
Republicans are the most convinced that American elections are fair to voters. Democrats and voters not affiliated with either political party are narrowly divided but tend to disagree.
