National poll finds consumers support financial regulation

The Los Angeles Sentinel reports on a new poll that finds consumers still support financial regulation and related enforcement. Moreover, consumer concern about payday and car-title lending has increased over the past year.

Roughly three-fourths of likely 2018 voters support the existence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and more than half are concerned about Republican efforts to restrain it, according to a survey of 1,000 registered voters by Americans for Financial Reform and the Center for Responsible Lending.
