The IRS scandal involves President Obama according to 55 percent of Americans in a Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the IRS scandal could impeach Obama if the FBI probe of the IRS turns up any evidence linking President Obama to the instances of the IRS harassing conservative groups for political reasons.
Based upon a poll released today, 57 percent of Americans believe the offenders behind the IRS harassment scandal should be jailed or fired. 29 percent recommend only a reprimand, even though the violations are a federal crime, and seven percent believe no action should be taken at all. Those people tend to be Democrats.
An amazing 55 percent “think it is at least somewhat likely that President Obama or his top aides were aware that Tea Party and other conservative groups were targeted by the IRS.” On top of that, 36 percent believe it is Very Likely President Obama or his top White House aides knew of the IRS harassment. Only 16 percent of Americans believe the IRS harassment of conservatives is a coincidence. Interestingly enough, it is said that “[m]ainstream voters are nearly three times as likely as those in the Political Class to think the IRS investigations were politically motivated.”
86 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of independent voters think the IRS harassment of conservatives was politically motivated. Democrats tend to disagree.
Because of the IRS harassment scandal, the Internal Revenue Service’s popularity dropped from a 42 percent favorable opinion down to 30 percent.
