campaign finance chart changes

The Public Campaign Action Fund has a new poll out, and Mitch McConnell won't be happy (but Alison Lundergan Grimes, his Democratic opponent, will). And that's because voters aren't happy with his opposition to sensible campaign finance restrictions. Yes, his infatuation with big money and affection for eliminating campaign limits is doing him in, so he'll have to find solace in the very special interests who, with any luck, will be his downfall.

money talks democracy has no voice

Kudos to the people of Kentucky who seem to be losing patience with the disregard for democracy that Citizens United and Senator Turtle McChinle$$ hath wroughteth eth eth.

Via the Washington Post:

The majority of Kentucky voters view Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell unfavorably and have deep concern about his support for unlimited campaign contributions, according to a poll released Wednesday by Public Campaign Action Fund, a group that seeks to limit the influence of big money on politics.[...]

Voters were particularly receptive to the argument that McConnell backs increasing the role of big money in politics, with 53 percent saying they had “very serious doubts” about his support for allowing “wealthy CEOs, lobbyists and special interest PACS to give unlimited amounts of money to politicians, including himself.”

I got a copy of the poll itself (sorry, no link, it's one of those pesky pdf. docs). Here are some grabs:
