Hill Poll: 56% believe Obama Over-reached Blocking Fast and Furious Docs with Executive Privilege, Only 29% Approve
Add yet another headache to the Obama 2012 reelection campaign …
According to a Hill poll, a majority of voters disagree with President Barack Obama’s blocking the ‘Fast and Furious’ documents from the House by evoking executive privilege. The Poll showed that that by a 2 to 1 margin of likely voters disapproved of Obama’s assertion of presidential power in the case. The end result, 56% of voters disapproved of his use of executive privilege, while only 29% approved.
A clear majority of likely voters believes President Obama has exercised his executive power inappropriately — particularly in blocking the release of documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious, according to a new poll for The Hill.
But in a sign that the electorate’s frustration extends to Capitol Hill, voters by a significant margin also feel Congress has behaved in an obstructionist manner toward the president.
Amid the discontent over the behavior of both Obama and members of Congress, the poll found a strong preference among voters for a return to one-party rule in Washington.
Democrats have accused Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) of a political witch hunt against Obama’s Attorney general Eric Holder; however, this poll seems to say quite the opposite. It will be difficult for Obama and Democrats to continue those talking points when their position is not supported by the People. Obama and his minions have greatly miscalculated “We the People” and the fact that a US Border agent Brian Terry died as a result of the government gun running program. People want answers and so do the parents of Brian Terry. No one likes a cover-up when some one died. Most transparent President in history, eh?
