Eric Holder is most hated


According to the Washington Examiner, “if you know who Eric Holder is, you probably don’t like him”:

Attorney General Eric Holder is one of President Obama‘s best-known and longest-serving cabinet members. Most recently, he led the administration’s response to the racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following the Michael Brown killing, launching multiple Justice Department investigations into the police department there.

If the results of a new Wall Street Journal poll are any guide, Holder’s service has not brought him much public approval. The Attorney General was one of a number of people and organizations that Journal pollsters asked respondents to “rate your feelings toward each one as very positive, somewhat positive, neutral, somewhat negative, or very negative.” Respondents who didn’t recognize a name were encouraged to say so.
