    If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote.

    Overall, these numbers are little changed since last October. When Congress was passing the unpopular $700-billion bailout plan in the heat of a presidential campaign and a seeming financial industry meltdown, 59% wanted to throw them all out. At that time, just 17% wanted to keep them.

    I would say stat is correct, save for one minor detail - their individual congressman would of course be exempt.

    In this case "all" means many.

    In other words, nothing has changed in the last 250 years. Half the people didn't support the 1st. Revolution in 1776.
