The Benghazi attacks are considered Hillary Clinton’s greatest career negative according to a recent Pew Research Center/USA Today poll.
Fifteen percent of those surveyed identified the Sept. 11, 2012, killing of four Americans at a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, when asked to name the worst thing about the career of Clinton, a possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, according to the Pew Research Center/USA Today poll released yesterday.
“Bill Clinton/husband’s affair” came in at No. 2, with 9 percent of respondents choosing that as her top negative. Eighteen percent answered “nothing.”
Republicans have criticized the Obama administration’s reaction to Benghazi—at first erroneously saying it was a spontaneous assault rather than a planned terrorist attack—in a series of congressional hearings.
