(CNN) - A new national poll suggests that Americans think the performance of the U.S. Senate 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.

Six percent of those questioned gave the Senate an A, 32 percent a B, 36 percent a C, 15 percent a D and 11 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.

    Cheer Up, young blogger pols. Back up your whining one bit, eh?
    100 days is less than an tenth of a term, dearies. They all get A's in my unimportant opinion for going about it an bloody different way. One shot here, Obama apologizing for and correcting preceived ills, is a tad bit Christian, wouldn't you say. Jesus didn't tot his own horn and he washed FEET! So what makes Repubs above Jesus. And the Holy Word is the ultimate TELE-Prompter, people. Now are we headed to the promise land?...See Revelations as it unfolds. Judge accordingly.

    Republicans ( F )

    Democrats ( A )

    Democrats always care about the middle class

    Republicans don't care for no one but themselves getting more richer!!
