Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters nationwide believe that those who write federal regulations don’t understand the real-world impact of those regulations.

A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 31 percent think regulators have a pretty good handle on the impact of their work.

Additionally, 56 percent believe there are too many government regulations in America today. Just 20 percent say there aren’t enough.

What happens when a regulation creates problems in the real world? If there is a conflict between acting in the best interest of its customers and obeying a regulation, 54 percent of voters want the company to serve the customer and ignore the regulation. Just 29 percent believe the company should obey the regulation.
