Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted June 16-17, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the Internal Revenue Service?
2* 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?
3* How likely is it that other government agencies also targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups?
4* The IRS has
admitted to targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups, but it remains
unclear who made the decision to target these groups. Who do you think made the
decision? Was it low-level employees at the Cincinnati IRS office, someone at
IRS headquarters or somebody who works in the White House?
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?
