New Poll: 84% of Idahoans Want Congressional Term Limits
Washington, DC – According to a new poll by Pulse Research, congressional term limits might be the most popular and bipartisan issue in Idaho. The statewide poll, which was conducted on September 27th, found that 84 percent of voters favor a constitutional amendment placing term limits on Congress.
The poll also found that, unlike most political issues, support for term limits is bipartisan – with 86 percent of Republicans, 79 percent of Democrats and 83 percent of Independent voters in Idaho agreeing that term limits for Congress are needed.
The poll found that 81 percent of voters are more likely to support a candidate for state legislature who helps place term limits on Congress and only 9 percent of voters would not support a pro term limit candidate. Term limits could play a critical role in the 2020 elections as the issue resonates well will most voters.
Large majorities also say that Congress members stay in power for too long, and that they’re more likely to support state lawmakers who help advance congressional term limits.
