A poll conducted by Lake Research Partners for AARP, the Center for Responsible Lending and Americans for Financial Reform examined how likely November 2012 voters feel about Wall Street Reform. Voters broadly and strongly support Wall Street reform. They support it in principle, they support it in law, they support the individual components of the reform law and they want it to be allowed to take effect. After hearing arguments in support and in opposition, voters across party lines still solidly support the Wall Street reform law. Conventional wisdom tells us that nobody wants government regulation and bureaucracy. In reality, voters don’t buy this argument when it comes to Wall Street reform and start out believing we need more government regulation of financial companies. They support having a single federal agency with the single mission of protecting consumers from financial companies and reject the false argument that Wall Street reform stands in the way of getting our economy back on track.
