Brad Smith & Scott Blackburn
Should businesses engage in political activity to protect jobs, fight unnecessary regulations or reduce costs? Most Americans think so.
Ninety-eight percent of Americans say if they ran a company facing burdensome laws and regulations, they would take some sort of political action.
Even corporate lobbying is supported by large majorities when it is in a business’s best interest. Eighty percent of Americans support lobbying to protect jobs, 72 percent support it to open new markets and 58 percent support it to reduce business costs.
