A recent poll conducted by Lake Research Partners and Chesapeake Beach Consulting finds overwhelming bipartisan support for strong regulation of financial services and products in order to hold financial services companies accountable and protect consumers against unfair practices.

By wide margins, Americans call for tough oversight and regulation of Wall Street banks, mortgage companies and credit card servicers, as well as specialized companies such as debt collectors, and they will vote these issues. Nearly six in ten voters express support for the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which will mark its fifth birthday next week.
