New polling released yesterday by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner (for Democracy Corps) and Public Campaign Action Fund shows that concern over the influence of money-in-politics is one of the few areas with the power to breakthrough the otherwise divisive national conversation in top battleground districts.
From the polling press release:
“People of all backgrounds agree that Congress too often works for moneyed interests and against regular people,” said David Donnelly, executive director of Public Campaign Action Fund. “In next year’s most competitive districts, voters will reward politicians – regardless of political party – who take action to reform our broken campaign finance system.”
“Nobody likes Washington these days, but one issue that crosses partisan lines is money-in-politics, specifically, how do we fix our broken democracy,” said Stan Greenberg, president of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner. “Candidates in these competitive districts should pay attention.”
Bloomberg News reported on the polling, and you can read the full polling memo here. The people are clearly fed up with our broken system and want to see an overhaul of our big money-driven politics. Hopefully politicians seeking congressional office next year will take heed. Those that do clearly have a winning issue, regardless of party.
