Poll shows strong opposition to Citizens ruling

“Perhaps most interesting is that almost five times as many voters think the justices allow their political views to play in their rulings rather than deciding cases solely on the law,” said Peter Brown, assistant director at Quinnipiac, in prepared remarks.

Findings from Quinnipiac come as Reps. Mike Castle (R-Del.) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Ma.) ready a bill that will respond to the court’s ruling. 

Van Hollen has already offered a framework for the legislation, which includes banning foreign interests, Federal contractors, or TARP recipients from making direct contributions to campaigns, mandating public disclosure of contributions, and requiring CEOs to approve ads funded by the company.
