CNN/ORC poll: Most Americans don't believe their own members of Congress deserve re-election

According to a new CNN/ORC poll, for the first time ever, seventy percent of Americans don't believe that their own members of Congress deserve reelection.

In addition, most of this anger is directed towards the GOP, with 59% of the population holding an unfavorable view of the Republican party, an all-time high since the question was first asked in 1992.

Ron Brownstein, CNN political analyst, joins Carol Costello and Christine Romans on American Morning today to discuss these statistics and to weigh in on what lawmakers need to do to improve their image in voters' eyes.

    Can you think of one congressman/woman who deserves to be re elected? I think we should recall them all and start over. May keep a small group, but most have shown their true colors and need to get the rug pulled out from under them.
