Conducted December 27-28, 2012
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Generally speaking how do you rate the way that Congress is doing its job…excellent, good, fair or poor?


2* Members of Congress almost always get reelected. Is this because they do a good job representing their constituents or is it because the election rules are rigged to benefit members of Congress?


3* Are most members of Congress willing to sell their vote for either cash or a campaign contribution?


4* How likely is it that your own representative in Congress has sold their vote for either cash or a campaign contribution?


5* Is the representative in Congress from your district more liberal than you are, more conservative, or about the same as you ideologically?
