Poll: Floridians focused on inflation, believe tech regulation will increase consumer prices

  • 83% polled think requiring companies to alert consumers when their data may have been impacted in a data breach is very important
  • Another 73% of Floridians believe that a free market generates more innovation than a tightly-regulated market and that Corporate America generates more innovation than the government
  • Only 9% of respondents believe that regulating big tech companies should be a top priority for Congress right now – coming in dead last on issues of priority for voters

Florida voters are overwhelmingly concerned about the rising costs of consumer goods, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies on behalf of the James Madison Institute, found that 42% of Floridians view inflation is the most important issue plaguing Floridians, trumping other issues such as immigration (9%) and gun control (8%). Florida voters also said, by an 83%-9% margin, controlling inflation should be the top regulatory priority of Congress and the federal government rather than focusing on regulating America’s largest technology companies.
