(CNN) - A new national poll suggests that Americans think the media's coverage of the White House and 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.
Eighteen percent of those questioned gave the media's reporting of President Obama and Congress an A, 28 percent a B, 22 percent a C, 12 percent a D and 20 percent a F. The grade for the media's performance 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.
