Democrats and Republicans Have Widely Divergent Views of Business Regulation

Republicans and Democrats, like their respective parties’ presidential candidates, differ sharply on what government’s role in regulating business should be. More than three-quarters of Republicans say there is too much government regulation. One in four Democrats agree there is too much regulation, while less than half (42%) say there is too little regulation and 32% say the current amount is about right. Independents tilt toward the view that there is too much regulation rather than too little or the right amount — basically reflecting the overall national average.
