Certain GND policies (green jobs guarantee, 100% renewable energy mandate) played better than others (closing all fossil fuel power plants, electric vehicles mandate) in this national survey of likely voters conducted Jan. 4-26, 2019 on 11 likely GND policies. The poll included both proponent and opposition messaging for each policy, and tested four different cost scenarios on each question, randomly alternating between zero, low, medium and high prices to test how the cost of a policy weighed on respondents’ opinions. Faced with the ranges of possible price tags, voters’ support varied, suggesting costs could factor high into the GND’s political viability. Policies improving drinking water infrastructure were the most popular.
