Rasmussen: Voters Split on Obama Investigations

Tuesday, 09 Nov 2010 11:40 AM


Voters have decidedly divided opinions about House Republican plans to investigate the Obama administration’s performance to date. GOP voters like the idea; Democrats don’t.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely U.S. voters finds that 40 percent favor House GOP intentions to investigate the past actions of the current administration. Forty-four percent oppose such investigations, while 16 percent are not sure about them.

Sixty-six percent of Republican voters approve of the investigation plans, but 72 percent of Democrats are opposed to them. Voters not affiliated with either party are almost evenly divided over the idea.

Among all voters, 43 percent say House GOP plans to investigate are more about partisan policies than in making sure inappropriate or illegal things don’t happen again. An identical 43 percent think the plans are intended to make sure wrong things don’t reoccur.

The survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters was conducted on Nov. 7-8, 2010, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
