A new poll has found that 60 percent of registered voters support the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality rules, even as the agency’s current leadership is in the process of repealing them.
The survey from Politico and Morning Consult shows that 34 percent of respondents strongly support the rules, while 26 percent say they somewhat support the rules. Seventeen percent either strongly or somewhat oppose the rules and 23 percent either don’t know or have no opinion.
And the support for the regulations is shared across party lines. Sixty-one percent of voters who identify as Democrats are either strongly or somewhat in favor of the rules, and among Republicans that number is 59 percent.
