Poll: Majority Supports Contempt Vote Against Holder

Poll: Majority Supports Contempt Vote Against Holder

A poll by CNN/ORC International found that 53% of Americans approve of the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder.

Last month, the House voted to hold Mr. Holder in contempt of Congress for not turning over documents pertaining to Operation Fast & Furious. Guns from the operation are linked to the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans, including the brother of a Mexican state attorney general. Guns have also been found at twelve crime scenes across America. 

33% disapproved and 13% had no opinion. 

69% of the respondents also thought President Barack Obama should end the executive privilege over the documents and just answer all the questions. 

During the contempt vote, Democrats tried to claim the American people thought this was a waste of time. Turns out they were wrong.
