CNN Poll: 90% Of Americans Say Government Policies Need To Be Changed
A new CNN poll finds that 60% of Americans say government policies need either major changes or a complete overhaul, while 30% said minor changes were needed. Only 7% said no change is necessary.
In a related note, the same poll found that 56 percent said they considered the Democrats the party of change.
Whether those two elements add up to an overhaul of Congress this November remains to be seen. While the poll found an anti-incumbent mood -- 55% said they'd support challengers, compared with 48% in 1994, when Republicans took take control of the House -- those surveyed overall favored Democrats by just a 53-43 split.
The poll was conducted from Aug. 30-Sept. 2
