What might the changes brought about by the influence of interest groups affect the public?
It can affect the public by inforcing their views on a subject. This, in turn, can affect public policy. For instance, if a group can convince the majority that abortion is immoral, then the majority may vote in an election to outlaw abortion. This will affect the public even more.Women who want an abortion can't get one. They are greatly affected.
