IRS and NSA concerns collide in poll

With IRS data being used to harm political opponents, is it much of a stretch to think that the NSA data could be used the same way?  From Rasmussen Reports:
There is little public support for the sweeping and unaccountable nature of the National Security Agency surveillance program along with concerns about how the data will be used. 
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters nationwide believe it is likely the NSA data will be used by other government agencies to harass political opponents. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 30% consider it unlikely and 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) . . .
