There is broad support among voters nationwide for the government transforming the nation’s power grid by 2035 to reduce pollution and address the climate crisis. A majority of national likely voters (62%) support the government moving the country to a 100% clean energy electricity grid by 2035 to address climate change and reduce pollution, including an overwhelming majority of Democrats (85%), a majority of independents (60%), and 40% of Republicans. Given the high levels of support across party lines, it is clear that a federal CES is not only key to reducing America’s carbon emissions, but also popular among the electorate.
