Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Look, I personally don't enjoy government. I find it complex (in an uninteresting way) and boring. This course covered a lot of topics and involved a lot of memorization - if you didn't commit the class slides and reading to memory, the best you could probably get would be a B (I finished with a B-). My word probably isn't the best one to take on this (I had to take this as a required class) but if you like government you'll probably be fine.
Some extra details about what I learned about during my sophomore year in high school. I didn't pick up much because government isn't a topic that tends to stick in my brain - I memorized what I could for the exam but I don't recall most of it. Then again, memorization isn't one of my skills, so maybe don't take my word as fact.

Advice for students:
Do the readings. Take notes. Pay attention. The exams aren't cumulative.
