Poll: Most Voters Oppose Citizens United Decision

January 20, 2012
Surprise, surprise. American voters are (gasp!) unhappy with the power of money in politics and want to see reform.

Those are the results of a survey of 1,000 likely voters by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research commissioned by Democracy Corps and Public Campaign Action Fund. The poll found that 62 percent of all voters oppose the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision (the two-year anniversary of which is tomorrow) and 46 percent of voters strongly oppose it. Meanwhile, 55 percent of voters do not believe that corporations should have the same rights as people.

In a conference call with reporters this week, advocates from Democracy Corps and Public Campaign used the data to contend that people want change. Other groups have already launched campaigns to repeal Citizens United through a constitutional amendment.
