Voters overwhelmingly back the Inflation Reduction Act. Further, the bill’s historic investments in clean energy enjoy bipartisan support. The bill enjoys support from an overwhelming majority of Democrats (95 percent), nearly three-quarters of Independents (73 percent), and over half of Republicans (52 percent). Among the most widely supported parts of the bill are fair labor and wage standards for businesses that utilize government tax credits for clean energy projects (90% Democratic and 62% Republican support); investments in conservation measures such as sustainable agriculture, coastal restoration, and forest preservation (88% Democratic and 61% Republican support); and grants to reduce air pollution at our nation’s ports to improve public health in surrounding communities (91% Democratic and 56% Republican support). A majority of voters (51 percent), including 73 percent of Democrats and 47 percent of Independents, think the Inflation Reduction Act will increase America’s energy security. Passing the Inflation Reduction Act could help boost Democrats’ hopes of winning the November 2022 midterm elections—initially, before voters learn about the Inflation Reduction Act, Republicans lead Democrats in the election for Congress by +4 points, but nearly two-thirds of voters (64 percent) of voters say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who supports the Inflation Reduction Act.
