IRS … New Poll
A CNN poll shows more Americans believe that senior White House officers ordered the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative political groups.
The report just released this morning also indicates that a majority of those surveyed believe the controversy is very important to the nation.
Last month, only 37% polled thought the IRS controversy led to the White House and 55% said IRS officers acted on their own.
Now, the survey shows 47% say the Administration was involved; that 10% jump comes while 49% still believe the White House was not involved.
Keep in mind this is a CNN survey, and the polling director says that President Obama might be losing Independents on this issue.
It is also important to note that Congressional sources in both parties say so far … there is no clear evidence of a political conspiracy.
The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International June 11-13, with 1,014 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
