NEW MAYDAY.US PRESIDENTIAL POLL: Supporters of Every Candidate Want Reform of How Elections are Funded
We just released a new presidential poll showing which candidates’ supporters care most about reforming how elections are funded.
We found that the vast majority of primary voters agree – regardless of which party or candidate they support – that we need to fundamentally reform the corrupt way we fund elections, including establishing citizen-funded elections that match small donations using public funds.
All voters agree: “The system for funding elections needs fundamental reform."
“A lot divides us as a country, but the results are clear: Supporters of every candidate for President – all the way from Ted Cruz and Ben Carson to Lawrence Lessig and Bernie Sanders – believe that our system is broken and needs fundamental reform,” MAYDAY.US CEO and Board Chair Zephyr Teachout said. “Americans are looking to Washington to break the cycle of corruption, and they’ve had it with a handful of corporations and well-connected individuals exploiting the weakness in our democratic design to corrupt our country from the inside.”
