Fifty percent (50%) of voters say that until the US has the ability to produce the required batteries, we should slow down the transition to electric vehicles.
That's according to the latest Scott Rasmussen national survey, which also found that 16% of Americans believe the US should never transition to electric vehicles.
Only 26% of voters believe the U.S. should transition to electric vehicles as quickly as possible.
China is the world’s largest producer of batteries needed for electric vehicles, and 66% of US voters are worried that the US may become dependent upon China for these batteries.
Twenty-six percent (26%) say they are not worried and 9% say they are not sure.
The poll numbers seem to be consistent with Americans' ever-increasing views that China poses a threat to the US.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters say "yes," China is a serious threat to US, 17% say "no," and 20% say they are uncertain.
The poll also found that 73% US voters believe the Chinese government covered up its role in the release of Covid-19.
