The silver lining:

Most Americans agree that both of these situations are serious enough to warrant continuing investigation, with little difference in views of the two -- 74% for the IRS matter and 69% for Benghazi.

Americans place similar importance on these two issues despite the administration's appearing to give more weight to the IRS situation.

Not surprising. I mean, they did vote for obama — twice.

Look at the difference between Repubs and dems in the numbers paying attention to these important issues. Wow...

Can’t the dems take time out from ogling porn and devote a few minutes to learning something constructive?

OK. 46% not following closely or at all. Would they be the 47% of “takers” mentioned by Mr. Romney? Hey, it’s only off by 1%, which is statistically insignificant, right?

Not very surprising. Bear in mind a large amount of the people not following, don’t follow ANYTHING. They don’t vote. They read celebrity magazines

Don’t care. Wrong is wrong, and wrong should pay when they are wrong. It’s only right.

Stupid voters aren’t paying attention. Oh well.

But avoiding PRISON is a great motivator.

There will be lots of motion as people try to arrange not to be the guy who goes to PRISON.

These scandals are rapidly growing in the publics eye. Just last week PEW RESEARCH polling indicated serious interest among Americans in the mid 40’s.

This poll can't be true American Idol is at it's all time low.
This is more to do with forming public opinion of those who are I.Q. challenged.

The IRS story broke on Friday, 10 May. Friday stories are notorious for not getting much attention, and this one was not more than a brief acknowledgement that there was some truth to the claim that Tea Party groups had been marked for extra questioning.

This poll was then conducted the next week on Tuesday and Wednesday, after only a few days, including a weekend. For perspective, it was not until Wednesday evening that Obama got on the TV over the scandal. That means the attention that such an appearance might draw came after many of the poll respondents had already been contacted. That is not a lot of time for the story to spread, and still 54% were somewhat or very interested in following the story. That 54% was characterized by Gallup as “well below average” which they say is 60% for other stories over the last few decades. Nonsense spin.

Yet, after only those few days 74% said there should be more investigation of what happened.

This story can easily be expanded and extended.
