Iowans Want Campaign Reform and Clean Elections

A recent survey by Iowans for Community Improvement commissioned a study that showed Iowans, regardless of party affiliation, support campaign finance reform by a 3 to 1 margin.

Iowa Politics reports that "political donors' overwhelming support (nearly three-fourths) of public financing of elections - Voter Owned Iowa Clean Elections (VOICE)."

When asked, "Many people believe there is too much money in the political process. Do you agree or disagree?" nearly nine out of 10 (88 percent of) donors said they agreed. Just six percent of respondents said they did not believe there was too much money in politics.

These sentiments go across party lines as well, with 89 percent of Democrats, 88 percent of Republicans, and 82 percent of Independents agreeing that there is too much money in politics.
