A poll conducted last week by Golin and Ipsos found only 41% favored CEOs weighing in on disputed elections, and only 43% wanted them speaking out on impeachment. On the other hand, 74% say CEOs should call for unity and a peaceful transfer of power, and 57% believe it was appropriate for CEOs to speak out after the January 6 insurgency at the Capitol. That pretty well tracks with the way most CEOs and business groups have behaved since election day. They kept their powder dry until all legitimate avenues for disputing the election were exhausted, then came out strongly endorsing the election results and attacking efforts to undermine them. Relatively few have backed impeachment. (You can see the poll results u003ca href="https://golin.com/2021/01/15/americans-want-business-to-stay-out-of-partisan-politics/">hereu003c/a>.)u003c/p> u003cp>But how about political contributions?

Their strategies have less to do with trying to influence outcomes, and more to do with assuring they have access to whoever wins.u003c/p> u003cp>The more important question for 2021 is how big business uses that access. There are a host of issues where business has the potential to help broker positive outcomes for the U.S. economy and society: economic stimulus, infrastructure, worker training, climate change. On each of these, business leaders occupy the center, and can help bring the parties together to solve urgent problems.u003c/p> u003cp>But on tax and regulatory issues, in particular, corporations will be playing defense. And they’ll be tempted to use what influence they can muster to seek tax breaks and regulatory exemptions that aren’t in the broader public interest. That’s where the commitment to stakeholder capitalism will be tested. The nation desperately needs business involved in government. But business, now more than ever, needs to use its influence to focus on solving long-term challenges.u003c/p> u003cp>News below.u003c/p> u003cp>u003cimg class="size-medium wp-image-2733410 alignleft" src="https://content.fortune.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/AMsignature-smaller-e1573764130712.png?w=300" alt="" width="300" height="51">u003c/p> u003cp>Alan Murrayu003ca href="https://twitter.com/alansmurray">u003cbr>@alansmurrayu003c/a>u003cbr>alan.murray@fortune.comu003c/p> u003ch3>TOP NEWSu003c/h3>nu003cp>u003cstrong>COVID failuresu003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp>The World Health Organization is currently highlighting failures in the handling of the pandemic.
