Morning Consult released new national poll results that indicated there is major support of coal-based electricity in the US – with 54% in favour.
The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity has indicated: “Once again, the writing is on the wall – American voters overwhelmingly support the use of coal to generate electricity. And once again, public opinion does not match public policy. In a new national poll conducted by Morning Consult, 54% of registered voters ‘totally approve’ the use of coal to generate electricity, compared to 32% who ‘totally disapprove.’ 14% have no opinion.”
It concluded: “Despite the near-constant fearmongering campaign conducted by this administration and its allies, the electorate continues to recognise the importance coal plays in the production of affordable and reliable energy.”
