46% Say Romney Should Release More Tax Returns, 46% Disagree

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Mitt Romney has refused to release his tax returns prior to 2010, and voters are evenly divided over whether he should make public his returns from earlier years. But just one-third of voters rate Romney’s tax returns as even somewhat important to how they will vote.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters think Romney’s release of his tax returns for 2010 and 2011 are enough. The identical number (46%) feels the Republican challenger should release more of his tax returns from earlier years. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on July 23-24, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
