Today’s Gallup Poll

Blog readers might be interested to see the Gallup poll results released today showing that fewer people felt the environment was an “extremely important” or “very important” issue than any of the six other issues raised.  Among Republicans, only 16% said “the environment, including global warming” was “extremely important,” while 34% of Democrats ranked the issue as “extremely important.”  Although that discrepancy may not be surprising, the poll showed that independents are much closer to Republicans than Democrats on this issue — only 18% stated it was “extremely important.”  These numbers probably don’t bode well for climate legislation, particularly in an election year.
