“Yes to clean energy: Even amid the pandemic and economic slowdown, conservatives still support clean energy, according to polling done by Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) and The Western Way (TWW). According to their findings, two-thirds (67 percent) of Republican and Republican-leaning voters agree making investments in clean energy are important to our nation’s effort to rebuild the economy after the coronavirus shutdown. Additionally, three-quarters of respondents support federal action to accelerate the development and use of clean energy in the United States. “This poll makes it clear,” said Heather Reams, Executive Director at CRES, “Commonsense plans that require reductions in carbon emissions and encourage clean energy development are winning messages for Republican candidates. Now more than ever, GOP voters recognize that preserving and expanding clean energy jobs will benefit the economy while improving public health—a win-win for our country.”
