YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you think your congressman deserves re-election?

America's dislike of Congress.... and their Congressmen... is reaching record levels.

The newest Gallup poll finds that only 46 percent of Americans believe their own representative should be re-elected.
               
That's the lowest level  since Gallup began asking the question in 1992.
And the share of voters saying *most members of Congress deserve re-election has fallen to a record low of just 17-percent.
               
That compares to an average of 39-percent over the years that Gallup has asked the question.
               
The numbers imply that Congress could be in for a major shake-up.
The pollsters say while Congress as an institution is no stranger to voter disenchantment, American voters are usually more charitable in their assessments of their own representatives.
               
Gallup says results like these have presaged significant turnovers in Congress in 1994, 2006, and 2010.
