New Poll: House GOP’s Anti-ESG Push to Blindfold Investors Is Deeply Unpopular, Even Among Republicans

Public Citizen released the results of a new nationwide poll conducted by Lake Research Partners which reveals that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives’ anti-Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts this year have been deeply unpopular with Americans across the political spectrum.

In the survey of 1,000 likely 2024 voters nationwide conducted November 14-22, 2023, the poll found that, by a 2-1 margin, a majority of voters (56 percent), including a majority of Independents (63 percent) and Republicans (52 percent), oppose Congress imposing limits on the type of information about a corporation’s business record that is disclosed to pension and retirement fund managers, investors, and the public.  The poll found that only 30 percent of voters, including only 21 percent of Independents and 34 percent of Republicans, would support Congress imposing limits on this investor information.
