(Newser) – Dick Cheney is arguably the most powerful vice president in history, but one American in four say he's also the worst in history, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp survey. Of those polled, 23% rate Cheney's job performance as the worst ever, with another 41% rating him poor. That still leaves 34% of voters pleased with the VP.

Cheney has boasted he's impervious to polls. "I'm very comfortable with where we are and what we achieved substantively," Cheney said. "And frankly, I would not want to be one of those guys who spends all his time reading the polls. I think people like that shouldn't serve in these jobs."
