Term limits for members of Congress?

January 21, 2013

According to a new Gallup survey, 75 percent of Americans said they would be in favor of term limits for members of the Senate and House of Representatives.

Similarly, 63 percent of Americans surveyed want to get rid of the Electoral College, which would base presidential elections on the total number of votes cast around the nation.

Both polls show little variation based on whether the respondents were Republicans, Democrats or Independents.

Katie Glueck at Politico points out that a week before these results were released, Gallup reported Congress having a 14 percent approval rating.

 

Do you think members of Congress should have a term limit?

Is the Electoral College outdated?

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
