Most voters say they think Congressional elections are rigged to protect incumbents, and nearly half say they believe a group of people randomly selected from the phone book could do a better job addressing the nation’s problems than the current Congress.
That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
The survey finds that 49% of likely voters say that a randomly selected group of individuals could do a better job than Congress.
That’s up 10 points from January 2015, and near the all-time high of 52% recorded in July of 2014.
One-in-three, 33%, say they disagree and say they do not think a randomly selected group could do a better job.
Eighteen percent (18%) say they are not sure.

Anyone hear of honest, controlled elections?
Who "controls" the random selection?
To determine where we would go for our annual vacations, my husband would throw a dart at a map of the World that we had up on a kitchen wall. Last year we spent a week behind the refrigerator.
Thank you for starting my day with that. Still chuckling hours later.
You may want to run that poll again next summer when inflation remains high, only the minimum wage service jobs are available, interest rates are up another 75 basis points and gas prices are still in the $3.50 range; after that $1.7T budget hits the taxpayers.
We may hit a new high beating the 2014 number.
