USA/CA: Majority See Global Warming, Energy as Important Issues—and Prefer ObamaStrong Support For State Law To Curb Emissions, But Partisan Split Widens
Public Policy Institute of California
SAN FRANCISCO, August 1, 2012—Most California likely voters say that the presidential candidates’ positions on global warming and energy policy are important in determining their vote, and a majority trust President Obama over Mitt Romney on these issues. These are among the key findings of a statewide survey released today by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC), conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
While global warming and energy policy have not been the focus of debate in the campaigns so far, 30 percent of California likely voters say these issues are very important in determining their choice for president and 42 percent say they are somewhat important. A majority—54 percent—say they trust Obama to handle these issues, while 33 percent trust Romney.
