86% of Blacks Support ‘Significant Steps’ By President To Tackle Climate Change

A new poll from the League of Conservation Voters found 61 percent of Americans say “the effects of climate change are already affecting them personally or will in their lifetime.”

Nearly two-thirds of voters (65%) support “the President taking significant steps to address climate change now” including:

89% of Democrats,

62% of Independents and

38% of Republicans

60% of whites,

76% of Hispanics and

86% of African-Americans

70% of voters under 40 and

62% of voters over 40

Bolstering this desire for action is the intensely held value that Americans have a moral obligation to future generations to leave them a planet that is not polluted or damaged. Nearly everyone (93%) agrees with this, and 67% strongly agree.
