Only 17 percent believe most members of Congress deserve to be re-elected

A wave congressional election may be heading to Capitol Hill.

A new Gallup Poll found a record number of constituents believe their lawmaker does not deserve to be re-elected.

"Congress could be in for a major shake-up," the pollsters write, alongside their report released Friday morning. "With so few voters saying they are willing to re-elect their own representative, it suggests that many officeholders will be vulnerable, if not in the general election, then perhaps in the host of competitive primaries soon to take place."
