(CNN) - A new national poll suggests that Americans think the performance of the Republican leaders in Congress deserves a grade of C minus.
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.
Five percent of those questioned gave the Republican Congressional leadership an A, 23 percent a B, 39 percent a C, 19 percent a D and 14 percent a F. The grade averaged out to a C minus.
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.
