Mileage Standards: Supported if Tough and Binding!

Three key points from this survey for me.
  1. Mileage standards are hugely popular across the states polled. These states where polled as there representatives don't yet have a stance.
  2. Mileage standards are overwhelmingly supported by republicans and democrats. Key concerns are energy independence, climate change and fuel costs.
  3. Mileage standards where most strongly supported if strong and legally binding.

On July 23, the Pew Campaign for Fuel Efficiency released new bipartisan polling in Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and Michigan that pulled from more than 30 congressional districts. The surveys found overwhelming voter support for the U.S. House of Representatives to pass legislation increasing automobile fuel efficiency standards at least as strong as those passed by the U.S. Senate in June. The polls, conducted by The Mellman Group (D) and Public Opinion Strategies (R) July 13-16 found vast support for increased standards in each of the individual Congressional Districts and states surveyed.
