77%: Rein in super PACs
An overwhelming majority of Americans say super PAC spending must have limits.
Thus far during the 2012 presidential campaign, Super PACs have spent tens of millions of dollars on ads for and against political candidates and causes, although Super PACs are not permitted to be contribute money to candidate campaign committees.
Our national scientific poll put this question to registered voters: Do you believe that Super PACs should be allowed to accept and spend unlimited amounts of money on political causes?
The overall national response: 77% no, 12% yes, 11% no opinion.
Democrats: 82% no, 9% yes.
Republicans: 68% no, 21% yes.
Independents: 81% no, 6% yes.
