Incumbents in particular are concerned. Recent research from a September 2017 Washington Post-UMD poll sheds some light on the disapproval Americans feel for the representatives of their own party. When compared with Congressional Democrats, Congressional Republicans are at a disadvantage.
When asked if Congress does a good job or bad job representing the concerns of ordinary citizens, Republican respondents were tough on the GOP, while Democratic respondents were more supportive of Democratic representation.
Sixty-seven percent of Democratic respondents thought their party did a “good” job representing ordinary citizens.
Only 40% of GOP respondents felt their leaders in Congress were doing a good job representing their needs.
