Most Voters Don't See Love As Answer to Terrorism

Monday, June 27, 2016

Voters like Attorney General Loretta Lynch a lot more than her predecessor Eric Holder but don’t agree with her that love is the best response to terror incidents like the one in Orlando.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of Lynch, including 27% with a Very Favorable one. Just 27% view the attorney general unfavorably, with 16% who have a Very Unfavorable view of her.  But one-in-five (20%) don’t know enough about the nation’s top law enforcement officer to express any opinion of her.
