CNN Poll: Dems congressional leadership grade

(CNN) - A new national poll suggests that Americans think the performance of the Democratic leaders in Congress deserves a grade of C.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Wednesday as the Obama administration marks 100 days in office, asked respondents to use a grading scale of A, B, C, D and F, where A is excellent and F is very poor.

Eleven percent of those questioned gave the Democratic Congressional leadership an A, 29 percent a B, 25 percent a C, 15 percent a D and 20 percent a F. The grade averaged out to a C.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted April 23-26, with 2,019 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's sampling error is plus or minus two percentage points.

    They have forced everything through with a doomsday mentality. "If we don't pass this things will get worse". I don't buy it!

    The Democrat Leadership has run a dictatorship that doesn't allow the Blue Dogs or the Republicans any amendments. Passes huge spending bills of $1 Trillion without allowing members to read them.

    When the bill for this spending spree and the coming hyperinflation they will try to blame anyone but themselves.

    They get a D-

    This "let's grade the president" crap has to stop. Jon Stewart handled the subject well on last night's show. Wolf Blitzer has no idea what he's doing.
