(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.

Hayes: An incomplete for Hillary Clinton

I say Hillary Clinton gets an incomplete for her time so far as Secretary of State.

It's unclear how much she's done, and how much progress has been the work of the individual special envoys who have been appointed.

It's also unclear where the decisions are being made in this administration. So it's too early to grade her.

Begala: Obama gets good marks for humor

I give President Obama an A for his press conference. He showed mastery on a wide range of issues - a rare and important skill.

Also, he was great at showing humor tonight - something he has stumbled over in the past. We all remember the mistake he made on Jay Leno, and his joking about Nancy Reagan in a way people found offensive.

But it's a sign of confidence to come back to something that didn't work the first couple times.

Brazile: Clinton off to a terrific start

(CNN) - I give Secretary of State Hillary Clinton an A. She is off to a terrific start.

She's helping the president rebuild alliances across the world. She's helped to reset our agenda which many of our allies.

I also disagree with those that who criticize her for apologizing for past U.S. actions.
The United States government depends on having a leader that keeps his word, and a country that keeps its promises.

For too long we were bullies across this world.
