Rasmussen: 43% of voters say most members of Congress are corrupt

Forty-three percent (43%) of all voters say most members of Congress are corrupt, the highest level of belief since we began asking this question in June 2008. By comparison, just 32% say most congressmen are not corrupt, but that’s the lowest level of confidence in over 20 months. Twenty-five percent (25%) remain undecided.

Another new low is the number who say most members of Congress are more interested in their own careers than in helping other people.

Only nine percent (9%) say the average congressman wants to help people more, down from 14% a month ago and the first time in over three years of surveying that the response to that question has been in single digits. Seventy-nine percent (79%) say most members of Congress put their own careers first.
