Well! This is heartening news. Can it be that reality is sinking in, and voters are starting to pay attention to the sheer craziness of the Republican agenda?

While positive ratings for Congress remain at an all-time low, more voters than ever see the Republican agenda in Congress as extreme.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 35 percent of Likely Voters say it would be more accurate to describe the agenda of Republicans in Congress as mainstream, while 52 percent feel extreme is a more accurate description. Thirteen percent (13 percent) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on February 8-9, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
