Poll: Most Americans Support Limits on Political Spending

The Associated Press and the National Constitution Center this weekend released the findings of wide-ranging poll that covered several issues near and dear to LB nation, including political spending, same-sex marriage and the relevancy of the Constitution. The AP also has a story on the poll, which was conducted in August and drew on telephone interviews with 1,006 adults nationwide.
On the the relevancy of the Constitution*:
A majority of respondents continue to say that the Constitution remains relevant today (69%) rather than an outdated document that needs to be modernized (28%). However, among Democrats, those referring to the Constitution as an enduring document dipped from 67% to 58%, and among Republicans, it fell from 92% to 80%.
Among independents, on the other hand, those who believe the document to be “enduring” increased from 63% to 75%
