Polls: Governors, Congress, US Senate ethics Ugh; Marijuana; Obama, Durbin
Written by 

washington-affairHow do the voters feel about the ethics of your governor, Congressman or U.S. Senator?  

 

 

Which position is considered to be the highest in honesty and ethics?  The lowest?  How popular is President Barack Obama as he enters into the realm of debate over the Fiscal Cliff?  Will his relatively high popularity versus the ethically-challenged numbers in Congress and the Senate make a difference in those discussions?

Should Marijuana be legalized?  Have the numbers changed over the past few months especially after two states have passed legislation making it legal?

How is powerful illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin doing in his re-election?

Here are the latest poll numbers provided today by Ron Faucheux, President and CEO of Clarus that bear upon the above questions:
