New Survey Shows That Renewable Energy Polls Extremely Well Among Trump Voters

There’s no denying it: Conservatives across the spectrum want cleaner energy. And they want politicians to support it too.

by Stephen Lacey
December 01, 2016


As the press tries to understand Donald Trump's approach to energy and climate change policy, the focus is on his limited policy proposals, transition team appointments, and confusing, offhand quotes. But it's also helpful to look to the voters themselves.

Trump won the presidency partly because of his ability to speak directly to the angst of many voters. That was how he approached energy too. In numerous speeches during the campaign, Trump painted a dire picture for America's energy landscape -- a place where workers are losing jobs in droves and regulation is killing domestic production.

In reality, however, there are now more American solar jobs than jobs in oil and gas extraction, and the country is the world's leader in oil and natural-gas production. We're truly an "all-of-the-above" country -- and increasingly, more energy is being sourced from above the ground, rather than below it.

And if Trump listens to his own voters, he'll hear this genuinely positive story about the future of energy. Because his supporters really like renewables -- and they really want the government to prioritize them.

A new survey of 1,000 people conducted by the Republican polling firm Public Opinion Strategies illustrates this dynamic. According to the poll, 75 percent of Trump voters support "action to accelerate the deployment and use of clean energy" -- including solar, wind, energy efficiency, and community renewable projects.

This backs up what we already know. Renewables are generally not a partisan issue. Survey after survey demonstrates this fact.

Although many Americans believe their country has fundamentally changed after the election, the story on clean energy remains the same. People of all political persuasions want more of it.

I support the development and use of clean energy too. So what? I do not support supplementing them with tax dollars. Good ideas do not need to be supplemented only bad ones do.
Thanks from Sabcat

Surpassing 2015, which surpassed 2014....

What do we need? 50 hottest years in a row, a three foot rise in ocean levels?
I'm unsure if that would change any stone-set minds.

Billions upon billions of tax dollars have been lavished upon oil and gas, coal, and nuclear power. Are you good with that, or are you a true purist?

No they haven't. You are confused. It is the opposite. Oil and gas have paid vast sums of money in taxes.

So you have $50,000 to spend to save $1,000 a year?
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Principle and I have to do something extraordinary before I die. Where I live wind power is an option and ground water power has been proved unfeasible. I hate the dad burn utility bill and will do it on my own. I would cost more than 100k to cover my brick ranch house with solar cells but Obama raised my electric bill.

Mono-dimensional.

Even today, in case of a nuclear accident, the feds will be called on to cover the insurance needed to cover it.
