Survey Indicates Lobbyists May Need to Rethink Tactics

A new survey of congressional staffers and lobbyists indicates that lobbying firms may have to change the way they do business with Congress, as their views of what matters to staffers differ largely from staffers’ own views.

With over $3 billion spent on lobbying in 2011, according to the Sunlight Foundation, the mass of persuaders is at the very least an economic force to be reckoned with. But the survey, conducted by the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management, indicates lobbyists don’t have as tight a grip on policymaking as they might like.
