A new Rasmussen poll finds that nearly 1 out of every 2 Americans think most Congressmen/women are crooks.
The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 1,000 Likely Voters conducted on July 24-25, 2011, finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters now view most members of Congress as corrupt. That’s up 7 points from June and the highest finding yet recorded. Just 29% think most members of Congress are not corrupt, and another 25% are not sure.
A whopping 85% of voters think most members of Congress are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people. Just 6% of voters rate Congress’ performance as good or excellent; 61% think Congress-critters are doing a poor job – a new low.
Other recent Rasmussen polls found that:
- If the federal government is ever again able to generate a budget surplus, an overwhelming majority of likely voters — 80% — want that money to go toward paying down the federal debt.
- Last Friday, the Obama administration extended its deadline to apply to the Emergency Homeowners Loan Program, but most Americans (62%) believe troubled homeowners should sell their homes rather than receive government assistance to keep them.
- 57% of likely voters favor a repeal of Obamacare.
