(POLL) 70% want term limits for Congress

Voters overwhelmingly support term limits for members of Congress, but don’t expect such a measure to be enacted.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The national survey found that 70% of likely U.S. voters are in favor of establishing term limits for all members of Congress.

That’s just slightly down from an all-time high of 73% in 2016

Only 15% now oppose term limits, while another 15% are undecided.

These findings come at a time when 73% of voters want 81-year-old Sen. Mitch McConnell to resign his position as Senate Minority Leader. 

Term limits for Congress are favored by 76% of Republicans and 68% of Democrats and voters not affiliated with either major party.

However, Congress must approve, by a two-thirds vote, any amendment to place term limits on itself.

Only 23% of voters think it’s likely that Congress will vote to place term limits on its members.

Seventy-four percent (74%) don’t believe it’s likely Congress would approve term limits, including 45% who say it’s “not at all likely.”

  1. NO, 300 thousand times NO!!! . Look what happened in California after term limits.
    Unions swooped into the power vacuum and now we can’t get rid of them.

    Term limits = lazy voters and then you are stuck with Democrats who exploit term limits to deadly consequences for the entire political process.
