Most Americans still agree that finding new sources of energy is essential and think renewable sources are a better long-term investment than fossil fuels.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that finding new energy sources is more important than reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume. Thirty-six percent (35%) disagree and consider energy conservation more important. This is consistent with regular surveying for years. (To see survey question wording, click here)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 31-August 1, 2014 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
