Republicans and Democrats alike want tougher federal regulations on Wall Street beyond those taken after the 2008 financial crisis, according to survey results released Monday.

In addition, Democrats in four early primary states — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina — called for stronger rules, according to a poll conducted for Americans for Financial Reform and the Center for Responsible Lending.

The survey involved 1,000 likely Democratic, Republican, and independent voters nationwide and was taken in July, Vox reports.

However, an additional oversample of 400 Democratic primary voters in the early states were queried to get a glimpse of their thinking.

"Anytime you see numbers this strong across partisanship, ignoring them is at your own electoral peril," Bob Carpenter, a Republican pollster involved in the survey, told Vox.

Here are the survey results:
