Democrats live and die by the polls. This one has to be killing them: A new CNN Opinion Research Corporation Poll revealed 51 percent of Americans approve of the way Republicans have handled the hearings on Benghazi. The poll also showed a six-point slip from 2014 in the way Hillary Clinton handed the attacks during her time as Secretary of State. CNN Poll: Majority of Americans Approve of Republicans’ Handling of Benghazi By: Alyssa Canobbio June 2, 2015 5:50 pm CNN Poll Majority of Americans Approve of Republicans Handling of Benghazi Washington Free Beacon Congressional Democrats never stop wailing that Benghazi is all about torpedoing Hillary’s bid for the presidency. So if polls tell us that Congress is held in low esteem it is fair to interpret this CNN poll as a popularity contest. In a new CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday, she was down to 46 percent. Even worse for her, the poll showed Clinton with her highest unfavorability ratings of the past 14 years — 50 percent, putting her underwater. A separate poll released Tuesday by The Washington Post and ABC News found that Clinton’s favorability was just 45 percent, the lowest in that survey since April 2008, when she was in the middle of a tough primary fight against Barack Obama.
