Congress enjoys one of the worst approval ratings in America, hovering between 10–15% in any given year. Yet, again and again, incumbents sail through reelection with huge margins of victory. In 2016, only eight incumbents out of the 435 up for reelection lost their seats. And many won with enormous margins that captured 60–70% of the vote in seemingly lopsided campaign races. It’s a clear sign that democracy isn’t working in large sections of the country.
