CNN Poll: House of Rep. Grade

(CNN) - A new national poll suggests that Americans think the performance of the House of Representatives 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.

Eight percent of those questioned gave the U.S. House of Representatives an A, 29 percent a B, 38 percent a C, 15 percent a D and 10 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.

    It's hard to grade them because they worked with the Bush Administration
    Mess to clean up. If you look at it that way, the job was a huge one,
    so, maybe they can have an A.
