Fourteen percent of people surveyed said it is either "not particularly important" or not at all important that the report be released.

The poll's findings come after last week's unanimous House vote in support of a resolution that calls for the report to be made public. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) later blocked the measure in the Senate.
