Poll: National Voters Say They Want Their Member of Congress to Co-Sponsor the Green New Deal

By a 13-point margin, national likely voters say they’d support their member of Congress co-sponsoring the Green New Deal Resolution.

Today, polling firm Data for Progress released a new national poll on voter attitudes towards the Green New Deal, finding that 60% of likely voters support the Green New Deal and 57% of likely voters would support their member of Congress co-sponsoring the Green New Deal resolution. 

A majority of voters also say they’d be more likely to vote for their representative if they co-sponsor the Green New Deal when it’s re-introduced (51% say they are more likely, 34% say they are less likely). Additionally, when Data for Progress presented voters with a right-wing talking point that the Green New Deal would be “a waste of taxpayer money that will increase the national debt,” support remained resilient with an 18-point margin of voters still backing the climate platform.
