Bad Day for Congress, Good Day for Used-Car Salesmen

It may be the fact that Hillary Clinton, the Former First Lady involved in more scandals than any First Lady in American History– including a HUD Secretary Scandal (You really have to try hard to be a First Lady involved in a HUD Secretary Scandal!), is out blasting the current Republican Administration for being corrupt and inept, that Democrats are still failing to see a significant boost from the Abramoff Scandal in national polls.

In the latest Rasmussen poll:

Just 31% believe there will be less corruption if Democrats win control of Congress. That figure is offset by 24% who say there will be more corruption with Democrats in power. A plurality (39%) say nothing much would change.

Despite the ruthless attacks on Deborah Howell from the Washington Post, most Americans see the Abramoff Scandal as a problem involving both parties:

A slight majority of Americans (52%) believe the Abramoff scandal involves members of both parties in Congress. Seventeen percent (17%) say it involves Republicans while 5% say it involves Democrats.

And, here’s the clincher:

Forty percent (40%) of Americans say that used-car salesmen are generally more ethical than members of Congress.
