The more things change...the more voters expect to be disappointed.

According to a new Rasmussen poll, the more things change in Washington, the more voters do not expect better results.  

The poll, released today, shows 67 percent of likely U.S. voters think most people will be at least somewhat disappointed with the 112th Congress.  That includes 37 percent of respondents who think it's very likely.  

The Rasmussen article on the poll points to one bit of good news for the new Republican majority in the U.S. House.  Most people believe the disappointment will be based on what Democrats do before 2012.
