Selective attention to polls, most believe economy is over-regulated

Media Silent on Poll Showing 74% of Voters Think Economy Is Over-regulated
September 14, 2011 by Ken Shepherd

On Monday, the Tarrance Group released a poll showing that 74 percent of American voters believe “that businesses and consumers are over-regulated.”

What’s more, “another two thirds (67%) believe that regulations have increased over the past few years. These percentages include majorities of all partisan affiliations, with 91% of Republicans, 75% of Independents and 58% of Democrats saying businesses/consumers are over-regulated,” the polling firm noted in a press release.

What’s more, “[a] key fear among voters is that regulations will hinder job creation, as most believe the result of new regulation will be either job losses (47%) or increased prices for American made goods and services (22%).”

Yet a search of Nexis of both major newspapers and broadcast network transcripts found no mentions of this poll and its results, perhaps because the numbers show the public agreeing with conservative arguments about how regulation is burdening American business and stifling economic recovery.
