Americans Want Term Limits and Citizens’ Congress

Conservative Americans are in favor of replacing the professional politicians in Congress with a citizens’ legislature through term limits, according to a poll conducted by Americans for Term Limits.

This change had the support of 85% of those who responded to the poll, while only 9% endorsed the current system of lifetime professional politicians. Nearly the same number, 75%, said that Congressmen are paid too much.

There was 76% support for extending to seven years the time during which a former member is prohibited from lobbying his former colleagues. Prohibiting relatives of high government officials from receiving government contracts had the backing of 70%.

The poll was conducted by mail in March, April and May, with more than 20,000 responses.
