NEW POLLING: Bipartisan Majorities Support Climate Policies in Biden’s Infrastructure Package; Majority Would be ‘Disappointed’ if Left Out

Thursday, May 27, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Navigator Research and Climate Power released new polling showing that climate policies within President Biden’s American Jobs Plan are extremely popular across party lines. With three quarters of Americans saying climate change is a problem now and for future generations, 78 percent agree that America should make significant investments in clean energy as part of our efforts to rebuild the economy. 

These policies are high priorities with potential political consequences — bipartisan majorities said they would be disappointed if these climate policies were left out of the final infrastructure bill. People of color, Democrats, young people, and Biden voters would be especially disappointed. Across parties, Americans say they would be most disappointed if modernizing the electric grid, expanding clean energy, and creating new jobs to conserve public spaces were left out of the American Jobs Plan.
