WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A majority of the 887 voters in Credit Union Times’ just expired voting poll believe that the potential for individual profit is driving the decision by some credit unions to convert to a bank. Approximately 55% of voters believed profit was a factor, while almost 40% did not. Interestingly, this poll question started out very one-sided.
