New Poll Sends Clear Message That Holder Should Go

BELLEVUE, Wash., June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new Rasmussen poll showing only 27 percent support for Attorney General Eric Holder keeping his job, while 73 percent are either in favor of his resignation or undecided, is a clear message that Holder should step down, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

There is one important caveat, noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. Before Holder leaves, he needs to surrender all documents relating to the Fast and Furious scandal to Congressman Darrell Issa and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“If Eric Holder steps down, that doesn’t mean he gets to walk away from this fiasco,” Gottlieb observed. “He doesn’t get to go home and write his memoirs, and he doesn’t get to just put all of this in his rear view mirror. He needs to comply fully with the subpoena, even if it means trouble for his subordinates, or his boss’ re-election campaign.

“The American public deserves answers,” he added, “and particularly, the family of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry deserves those answers. We cannot get those answers until the documents are turned over.”

The survey was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, and released Friday morning. It has a +/- 3 percentage point sampling error. It comes as Holder is trying to head off a looming Oversight Committee vote on whether to hold him in contempt of Congress for withholding thousands of subpoenaed documents relating to the Fast and Furious investigation. The Rasmussen survey revealed that 40 percent of those contacted are in favor of Holder stepping down. Another 33 percent are undecided, but that leaves barely a quarter of the public in favor of Holder’s continued service as attorney general.

“Holder needs to go,” Gottlieb said, “but not before Congress and the American people are allowed to learn the truth about this disturbing operation.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.
