SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington state lawmakers didn't fare too well in a poll on their performance during the most recent legislative session.
 
The Seattle Times reports Wednesday that respondents to a recent poll by Stuart Elway gave lawmakers an average grade of D-plus. Of the 406 registered voters surveyed between July 9 and 11, 17 percent of respondents gave lawmakers an F, 29 percent gave them a D, 34 percent chose C, 11 percent chose B and 1 percent awarded them an A. Nine percent had no opinion. The margin of error was plus or minus 5 percent.
 
Twenty-one percent of respondents said that the Majority Coalition Caucus, a coalition of 23 Republicans and two Democrats that took control of the Senate at the start of the year, had a positive impact compared to 35 percent who viewed the coalition negatively. Forty-three percent were neutral or had no opinion.
