Before the decision, the law barred corporations and unions from spending money to support or oppose candidates. The Supreme Court overturned this previous law and ruled that corporations and unions have the right to spend money to support or oppose specific candidates. Now, after learning a little bit more about this, do you favor or oppose this decision?Only 11% strongly supported it while 47% strongly opposed it. Add in the somewhats and people opposed the decision by a better than 2-1 margin, 64-27.
The opposition was found across party lines[,TPM said], and according to the pollsters was especially common among independents....So much for Glenn Greenwald's contention that the public "overwhelmingly agrees with the Court's ruling."
