Poll: Reliable Republican Voters Support GOP Action on Climate
Climate Leadership Council
Core Republican voters want their members of Congress to address climate change. The Climate Leadership Council and Americans for Carbon Dividends report that the majority (54%) of core Republican voters say it’s important for their member of Congress to work to address climate change. The poll additionally finds that core Republican voters broadly agree on climate action when it’s framed as protecting U.S. manufacturing. For example, over three-quarters (77%) say they would support “a joint effort between the U.S. and its allies to penalize products made from high carbon pollution countries like China, which would benefit more efficient American companies and their workers.” Additionally, 64% support a proposal to “charge a fee on imported goods from foreign countries based upon the carbon pollution that resulted from producing those goods.”
