Voters continue to feel the Republican agenda in Congress is less extreme than that of congressional Democrats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 42 percent of Likely Voters describe the agenda of Republicans in Congress as mainstream, while nearly as many (38 percent) view it as extreme. Twenty percent are not sure.

At the same time, 38 percent of voters think the agenda of Democrats in Congress is mainstream, while nearly half (49 percent) believe it is extreme. Thirteen percent remain undecided.

This marks an improvement for Democrats from August of last year when 57 percent rated their congressional agenda as extreme and 34 percent said it was mainstream.

Attitudes toward the GOP agenda in Congress have changed only slightly: In August, 45 percent said it was mainstream, and 40 percent extreme.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on Jan. 9-10, 2011, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
