Half of all Americans believe most members of Congress are corrupt – a figure that has risen 12 points since the start of the year – and more than a third think their own representative is crooked, according to a new poll released Thursday by CNN.
According to the poll, a majority disapproves of how both parties are handling their jobs in Congress. Just 42 percent approve of how the Democrats are doing in Congress, while 54 percent disapprove. The GOP fares even worse – only 36 percent approve of their performance in Congress, while 61 percent disapprove.
Just remind me why America is the model democratic pupil again?
