Does Campaign Cash Really Matter?

When it comes to campaign contributions, most voters think disclosure is more important than restrictions. Most also still believe substance matters more than money when it comes to election outcomes.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe it is more important to disclose the source of all contributions than it is to limit how much money individuals can contribute to campaigns. Thirty-three percent (33%) think it is more important to limit campaign contributions. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
