Poll: 47 percent think Holder driven by politics, not justice

A new poll released by Rasmussen reveals that 47 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that now-former Attorney General Eric Holder was "more interested in politics than in administering justice in a fair way." Twenty-eight percent disagreed with the statement and said they think "fair administration of justice was Holder's chief interest." Nearly 25 percent said they weren't sure.

A similar survey last month found that 54 percent of likely voters thought "the Justice Department under Holder's leadership was more interested in politics."

Furthermore, 46 percent of respondents said "the next attorney general should be less like the man who currently holds the post."
