Almost 70 percent of registered voters want super PACs to be banned, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Earlier this year, a Civil Beat poll found that Hawaii voters support limiting the influence of wealthy donors and special interests on elections.
Super PACs have already played a major role in the 2012 presidential race. Data from the Center for Responsive Politics shows Super PACs have raised more than $130 million, and spent more than $75 million in the election cycle so far.
Restore Our Future, the organization supporting Mitt Romney, has shelled out more than $33 million on his behalf in states with early primaries. A rival super PAC, Winning Our Future, has spent $16 million on Newt Gingrich, the Washington Post reports.
