i don't think it's the same, they are tripled in number if not more, not sure if there's a poll done on this but I don't really think that people are aware of such a lobby [I'm talking about the majority]. cause it would definitely show if there are as many who recognize it
If you have a poll I would be interested to see it, especially if it includes many countries beside the US (in a statistically significant way). But whatever the results, it won't prove anything. If 99% of people believed there was no lobby or that it has no special influence, that wouldn't mean it's true; if 99% believed it was the dominant force in American politics that wouldn't make it true either.
