So What Are the Odds? A Look at a Recent Poll on Government Reform, Privacy and Wall Street
Of note is that when the same question was modified slightly by asking about breaking up financial institutions deemed "too big to fail", the results were a bit different. Slightly less, 55% favored ending "too big to fail" banks and other corporations, which broke down to 61% of Democrats and 60% of Independents. However, only 47% of Republicans supported the idea. I wonder why? Could be their dominance of these boards of directors? So, what are the odds? By the way, on a related question, 67% favored ending the ability of Wall Street and other corporate firms to deduct government fines and penalties from their tax liabilities.
