Newsmax reports that approximately 40 percent of Americans want Eric Holder to resign because of the Fast and Furious scandal. Now’s really not a good time to be Eric Holder, is it?
A survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports determined that 40 percent of voters are likely to give Holder the boot. By comparison, only 27 percent of people think that he should stay and the remaining 33 percent are undecided. The survey received answers from 1000 likely voters and it has determined that Holder is the single most unpopular member of President Barack Obama’s cabinet.
Statistics can be a bit tiresome, so we’ll break them down into easily digestible chunks:
