Three-quarters of Americans would support term limits for members of Congress, despite most incumbents returning to office following the 2012 election, according to a recent Gallup poll
The poll also found that nearly two-thirds of Americans would abolish the Electoral College, with both ideas supported strongly by Democrats and Republicans alike.
Seventy-five percent of respondents to the poll said they would vote for term limits and at least 73 percent of all age groups eligible to vote agreeing on the idea.
Republicans most strongly agreed with term limits, at 82 percent. Seventy-nine percent of independents and 65 percent of Democrats also said limiting the number of terms served in Congress was a good idea.
Sixty-three percent of poll participants also said they would like to do away with the Electoral College system of electing the president.
Although the party breakdown in this poll was somewhat evenly split, Gallup noted in its analysis that historically the party which won the presidency wanted to keep the system in place.
Gallup conducted the poll Jan. 8 and 9, talking to 1,013 random adults over the phone.
The margin of error for the poll is 4 percent.
