AAF Releases Financial Regulation Public Opinion Survey
A majority of voters blame “big government” instead of “big Wall Street banks” for having a negative impact on their personal finances, a unique new survey by the American Action Forum (@AAF) found. The AAF survey examined public opinion on financial regulations in 30 congressional districts nationwide.
The survey examined Dodd-Frank, the 2008 financial crisis, and the popularity of key financial regulations. Respondents meanwhile were split on whether they favored or opposed Dodd-Frank (37% in favor, 39% opposed), while many were not familiar with the law.
