POLL: 52 Percent Of Likely 2012 Voters Say Will Not Vote For Candidate Opposed To Reducing Money In Politics

A majority (52 percent) of all 2012 likely voters — and 55 percent of independent voters — say they will not vote for any candidate “who will not commit to reducing money in politics,” according to a new poll released today. The survey by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner for Democracy Corps and Public Campaign Action Fund shows 73 percent believe we need common-sense limits on the amount of money spent on campaigns, compared to just 21 percent who see such limitations as violations of “free speech.” Even among self-identified Republicans and Tea Party loyalists, about two-thirds back campaign contribution limits.
