It marks the first time since the election
According to Rasmussen Reports™ Congress' job performance approval rating has fallen to single digits again. It is the first time since November's election, when Democrats gained additional seats in the House and the Senate. Only 2 percent of the likely voters Rasmussen surveyed believe Congress is doing an excellent job while only 9 percent believe Congress is doing a good or excellent job.
Among Democrats, only 14 percent gave a good or excellent job performance score to Congress, even though their own party leads.
34 percent of those surveyed think a majority of the Congress is corrupt, down 2 percent since Rasmussen's last survey.
Ironically, while the government is in the throes of seeking more and more regulation in the private sector, a separate Rasmussen survey showed some voters believe politicians are more corrupt than the CEO's of large corporations and that belief was held by a whopping margin of 48 - 25 percent.
In their weekly review of polls, Rasmussen says most Americans see Barack Obama as about the only bright spot in the future.
