WASHINGTON, D.C. — In less than a day, Sen.-elect Al Franken will be sworn in as Minnesota’s second U.S. senator.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In less than a day, Sen.-elect Al Franken will be sworn in as Minnesota’s second U.S. senator. But, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released Thursday, it’s clear that the Democrat still has a lot of work to do.

The new national poll shows that 44 percent of voters have an unfavorable view of Franken despite his victory in Minnesota last week.

Meanwhile, 34 percent said that they have a favorable view of the former liberal radio host and comedian.

The poll was conducted July 1 and has a 3-percentage-point margin of error.
