Interesting that this is coming from CNN –
A growing number of Americans believe that top White House officials ordered the IRS to target conservative political groups, according to a new CNN/ORC International survey.
In May, only 37% of the public thought that the IRS controversy led to the White House, with 55% saying that agency officials acted on their own without direct orders from Washington. Today, that number has increased 10 points, to 47%, virtually the same as the 49% who believe the IRS agents acted on their own.
Congressional sources say that interviews with IRS workers so far have found no political conspiracy or ties to top White House officials.
The poll was conducted June 11-13, with 1,014 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
