Voters side with simulated Democratic arguments on climate that emphasize how climate change is already here over simulated Republican arguments that raise doubts about the science and the cost of action. Four in five Americans believe the climate is changing and that climate change is a problem for Americans today. Those who say that the weather in their community has changed are most likely to cite hotter temperatures and increased droughts and wildfires. Biden and Democrats are more trusted than Republicans when it comes to protecting the environment and addressing climate change.
