Half Think Congress is Corrupt

"About half of U.S. adults believe most members of Congress are corrupt," according to the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

The survey found 49% believe most members of Congress are corrupt. "Although 46% of respondents said most aren't, the margin of sampling error -- plus or minus 4.5 percent -- makes it clear that the perception of congressional politicians is largely negative."

Key finding: 55% say corruption will be "the most important" or a "very important" issue to consider when voting in November.
