Experts of the 2018 Election added that reducing the influence of money in affecting the democratic elections would be a good way to ensure transparency in the system. In fact, Pollster Al Quinlan noted that when money’s power is removed from the elections, the voice of the individual voters would be ensured. This is also about the top priority of individual voters in making sure that the elections are free from the influence of special interest groups that want to control the electoral results.
What People Think
It was also stated in the report from USA Today that right now the influence of money has even infiltrated the congress level. This is also the reason why the people wanted to make sure that there should be now immediate reforms in how the election donations will be done.
This message doesn’t only come to Republican and Democrat voters, but also independent citizens as well. The people want that big money should not be a big influencer in how the election turns out. They want organic results that represent their collective voice.
That said, End Citizens United also makes it sure that when they accept donations from people, it won’t be beyond $5,000 just to make sure that the people who want to support the advocacy will not turn out to be the same as the people they’re fighting.
This is also to ensure that people all over the country will get a fair share of the representation and will not be tempted to use their big money to influence the turnout.
