The re-election rates for members of Congress hovers between 85 and 95 percent.

Yet, according to a new survey from Poll Position, the majority of American people would like new rules which would prevent them from sending the same represenatives to Washington, DC year after year.

The poll asked 1,152 registered voters if they would support or oppose a mandatory two-term limit on all members of the Senate and House of Representative. Sixty-four percent would support such a limit, 21 percent opposed it, and 16 percent were undecided.

Republicans were most in favor of the limit, at 71 percent. Independents supported it at a 65 percent clip, and 55 percent of Democrats think there should be a two term limit on Senators and members of Congress.
