Editorial: Congress is losing members quickly
The approval ratings of Congress and its members are at an all-time low.
In fact, according to some recent polls, 11 percent of Americans approve of polygamy, while only 9 percent approve of Congress.
Apparently members of Congress have a similar low opinion and are choosing to retire. As of today, 10 senators and 37 members of Congress are not seeking re-election. There are 28 Democrats and 19 Republicans not running in 2012.
