National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted June 26-27, 2014

1* How closely have you followed recent news stories about the Internal Revenue Service?


2* Did the IRS break the law when it targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups?

3* The IRS now says that it has permanently lost the e-mails related to its targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups. How likely is it that those e-mails were deliberately destroyed to hide evidence of criminal activity?

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 the IRS targeted other political opponents of the Obama administration?
