AFR/CRL Poll Shows Strong, Bipartisan Support for CFPB

Here.  Excerpt from their statement:

  • The mission of the CFPB, created in 2010 to shield consumers from shady industry practices, is extremely popular, with 74 percent of voters backing its work. The poll shows majority support from Democrats (85 percent), Republicans (66 percent), and Independents (77 percent). The Dodd Frank reforms writ large are supported by very similar portions of voters.
  •        The public also supports key CFPB initiatives: a ban on forced arbitration, the practice of denying consumers their day in     court; regulation of high-interest payday lending; and rules on debt collection.
