Poll: Half want government-funded campaigns

Half of Americans would support government-funded campaigns- a Gallup poll finds. 

According to a Gallup poll posted on Monday, 50 percent of Americans say they would support a law banning campaign contributions from individuals and groups, which would instead have government fund federal campaigns; 44 percent said they would oppose such an initiative. Americans also overwhelmingly support limiting congressional campaign contributions, the poll found: Seventy-nine percent said they would support such limits; 19 percent said they would not.

The survey of 1,015 adults was conducted June 15-16 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
