Election 2014 provides Americans opportunity to reset the US Congress. It paves the way for Election 2016, when Americans will elect a new president. How is the electorate thinking about selecting and electing their representatives to the House and Senate? Here are some factors to consider (List):
- Congress is dysfunctional, and what will improve that?
- The President is performing deficiently, what will improve that
- If Hillary Clinton is a presidential candidate with propensity to win, what should a Clinton Congress look like?
- If Jeb Bush is a presidential candidate with a possibility to win, what should a Bush Congress look like?
Americans are setting the table for their future. Do they want more dysfunction, or a functional government? They are setting the table for the next president too. To whom will they invite as president, Clinton, Bush, or someone else?

Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obama’s approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the president’s agenda, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.”
