In sobering news for incumbents in Congress, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows that a majority of voters say their own representatives do not deserve to return to office.

With less than a week before the midterm elections, about 6 in 10 voters say it is time to give someone new a chance to represent their district in Congress, the poll found. That figure is higher than it was in 1994, when Democrats last lost control of the House of Representatives.

As is usually the case, even more voters say that most members of Congress do not deserve re-election. An overwhelming 80 percent in the latest poll say so, about the same as in 1994.
