Fox News Poll: Majority Thinks White House Knew about IRS Actions
Voters are concerned about the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups for unfair treatment, and over half think the White House either knew it was happening or — worse yet — was actually behind the operation.
That’s according to a Fox News poll released Tuesday.
The IRS recently admitted it targeted tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when the groups sought tax-exempt status.
Most voters think the White House was involved in the IRS scandal in some way: 37 percent think the administration knew it was going on but didn’t initiate the policy, while another 29 percent believe the White House directed the IRS to go after those groups.
About a quarter (24 percent) says the White House had absolutely nothing to do with what the IRS was doing.
