Approval for Congress Democrats is 9% higher than approval for Republicans

Both Democrats and Republicans have very low approval, but it is worth mentioning that approval for Republicans in Congress is significantly lower than that of Democrats. Here are the last two polls that broke down party approval in Congress:

McClatchy:
Dems: 35%
Reps: 26%

Figures are for registered voters.

3. But the last election showed that this means noting for most of them

Gerrymandering and voter apathy means most will be re elected. If these sorts of approval ratings meant anything at all then we would see wholesale tossing out of incumbents.
