From Pew Research comes data about the views by Republicans and Democrats about business and regulation. Check out the 16-point drop in the number of Democrats  who think regulation does more harm than good — a reflection of the huge lurch to the left by the party since 2007 and the election of Mr. Obama.

Fully 76% of Republicans say that government regulation of business does more harm than good, among the highest percentages ever. Just 41% of Democrats agree — a difference of 35 percentage points. In 2007, identical proportions of Republicans and Democrats said government regulation of business did more harm than good (57% each).

Not only should every American, regardless of political affiliation, be concerned about regulations, we should all be concerned about and opposed to crony capitalism.
