National poll

News of IRS “scandal” received with negativity. Note little partisan difference, but some pushback from younger voters.

A government investigation recently revealed that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has paid over $2.8million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including over $1million to workers who owed back taxes. The report says that this is inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws. Knowing this, do you have a more favorable or a less favorable impression of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)?

National poll

Having sent a letter to IRS on targeting (Merkley, Shaheen, Franken) has message potential, significant intensity.

In the summer of 2013, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) came under fire for improperly targeting conservative groups for additional scrutiny and delays based on their ideological leanings. It recently came to light that a group of Democratic U.S. Senators sent a letter to the IRS in March of 2012 encouraging this type of action. If one of these Senators represented your state, would you be more likely or less likely to vote for their re-election having learned this?
