Are we stupid?

Just 8 percent of Americans want the members of Congress re-elected, according to a CBS News-New York Times poll taken nine months before roughly one-third of the Senate and the entire House face voters. 

The Feb. 5-10 survey found 81 percent of respondents saying the lawmakers shouldn’t receive another term.

And yet, that same public will almost undoubtedly return about 90 percent of incumbents running for reelection to office.
