Corporate malaise: Gallup Data indicates that people tire of corporate influence over so many parts of Americans' lives.

Around 63% of Americans aren't happy with the size and influence of major corporations, and there are only 35% who are satisfied.

Rebecca Riffkin of Gallup writes that since 2003 Americans have been disappointed with corporate influence, because they want them to have less power than they do. Many Americans are mostly dissatisfied with government regulation and business industries.

Overall, 49% of U.S. adults are dissatisfied and want corporations to have less influence, 4% are dissatisfied and want them to have more influence and 10% say they are dissatisfied but don't express a preference for change.

Americans' satisfaction with business regulation and their preferences for more or less of it could shift, depending on the party of the president who is elected next November.
