Illinois Politicians Seen As More Corrupt Than Corporate CEO'S

Rasmussen has found that by a 2 to 1 margin, Illinois politicians are seen as more corrupt than corporate CEO'S.

A Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Illinois voters found that 48% say the politicians are more corrupt while just 22% hold the opposite view. Thirty percent (30%) are not sure.

There is a huge partisan divide on this question. Republicans by a 68% to eight percent (8%) margin say politicians are more corrupt. Voters not affiliated with either major party share that view four-to-one. However, Democrats are evenly divided: 34% say CEO’s are more corrupt, 31% say it’s the politicians, and 36% are not sure.

No huge surprise here considering the trouble being seen now with Rod Blagojevich and remember, people do not refer to "Chicago politics" that way for no reason.
