A June 3 poll published by The New York Times asked: “Do you think the system for funding political campaigns in the U.S. requires change?” Some 39 percent stated “major change” was needed, while 46 percent responded that it should be “completely rebuilt.”
This is not a partisan issue; some 80 percent of Republicans responded that “money has too much influence in political campaigns.”
Currently in Washington state, unpaid volunteers are collecting signatures for Initiative 735 to put on the fall 2016 ballot legislation to demand that Congress pass a resolution to amend the Constitution to get dark money out of politics.
