People Dislike Congress, Like Their Own Member of Congress

 The old saying is that voters hate Congress and love their congressman.  Still true.  Jeffrey M. Jones at Gallup:

Fewer than four in 10 U.S. registered voters say President Joe Biden deserves to be reelected, while less than a quarter say the same about most members of the U.S. House. As is almost always the case, voters are more inclined to believe the U.S. representative from their own district should be returned to Congress, with 55% holding that view.


Bar chart. Registered voters' belief that federal officeholders deserve reelection. Fifty-five percent of voters say their representative in Congress deserves reelection, 38% say President Biden does, and 24% say most members of Congress do.
A table showing registered voters' beliefs that federal officeholders deserve reelection, by political party. Majorities of Democrats say their representative in Congress and President Biden deserve reelection. Majorities of Republicans say their member of Congress deserves reelection.
