Americans Back To Reality: Its Time To Brace For Global Cooling!!!

Texas may have roughly one-fourth of the nation’s oil supply, but voters in the state apparently welcome the competition: 77% support offshore oil drilling, five points higher than the 72% who support it nationwide.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey shows only nine percent (9%) of voters in the Lone Star State oppose offshore drilling, while another 91% approve.

The idea, in fact, seems to be universally popular, with support from 89% of Conservatives, 85% of voters not affiliated with either major party and even 53% of Democrats.

While President Obama has banned on offshore drilling, he has kept it in place off the coasts of California and New England because of political opposition there. Sixty percent (80%) of Texas voters think offshore drilling should be allowed off those coastlines, too, comparable to views nationally. Sixteen percent (16%) oppose drilling off those states. Roughly one-in-four (24%) are undecided.

Despite their support for offshore drilling, 41% of Texas voters believe states should have the right to ban drilling of their own shorelines, slightly less supportive than the view nationally. Thirty-four percent (34%) disagree, and 26% aren’t sure.

80% of Conservative voters and 63% of unaffiliateds favor drilling off New England and California.

Republican and unaffiliated voters are less supportive than Democrats of states having the right to ban drilling off thier own coastlines.

Most voters in California and Massachusetts ALSO support resumption of offshore oil drilling.
