Polling Memo: Voters Support Strong Consumer Financial Protections and Tough Regulation of Wall Street

Ten years after passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, with the country again facing an economic crisis, new polling data from Lake Research Partners shows that voters across all political parties are broadly and intensely supportive of strong consumer financial protections and of tough regulation of the financial services industry.

The polling memo can be found here.

This sentiment extends not only to keeping existing measures in place but expanding on what Congress did a decade ago, and has proved durable throughout the period since the 2008 financial crisis, through the weak recovery that followed and into the searing recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
