A Washington Post-ABC News Poll shows that there is overwhelming, bipartisan support on at least one issue: the Supreme Court’s decision allowing foreign and domestic corporations, unions, and other organizations to spend unlimited amounts of money from their general funds to influence elections is absolutely horrible. Finally, we all get along on one thing: campaign finance was better without this decision. I guess I’m not the only one who sees the dangers of this decision on our democracy, which I wrote about back in January.
The now infamous Citizens United case is hated equally by Democrats, Independents and Republicans, with all three groups having at least 76% disapproval for the decision.
In a time when political partisanship seems to put a wrench in everything, our legislators need to pay special attention to what average American citizens feel about corporate money influence elections instead of voters influencing elections.
