National Survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters
Conducted May 13-14, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have
you followed recent news reports about the Internal Revenue Service?
2* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable opinion of the IRS?
3* The IRS recently
admitted that it targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups for audits
and closer investigation. Were these investigations politically motivated
or was it a coincidence?
4* What type of disciplinary action should be taken against IRS employees who targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups? Should they be jailed, fired, formally reprimanded, or should no disciplinary action be taken?
5* How likely is it that President Obama or his top aides were aware that Tea Party and other conservative groups were targeted by the IRS?
