(POLL) Voters trust GOP more on energy policy

Increasing domestic energy production remains a priority for American voters, who trust Republicans more than Democrats to deal with the issue.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey found that 47% of likely U.S. voters trust Republicans more to handle energy policy, while 41% trust Democrats more and 12% are not sure.

Fifty-two percent (52%) of voters believe Congress and President Joe Biden should focus more on increasing oil and gas drilling to help reduce energy prices – down from 60% in April 2023 – but 39% think the policy focus should be more on limiting carbon dioxide emissions in an attempt to reduce climate change.

Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats want to make reducing climate change the policy priority, but that opinion is shared by only 17% of Republicans and 38% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

Seventy-three percent (73%) of Republicans, 33% of Democrats and 54% of unaffiliated voters believe increasing oil and gas drilling should be the priority.
