Article 4 : What voters in battlegroung states think about cliùate change
New York Times and Siena College poll, climate change is a big issue for voters this year.
according to this survey:
58% of Americans are "very concerned" about CC
39% are not or not at all.
This poll reveals a partisan divide
voters for Biden: 90% are preoccupied by the CC
voters for Trump: 39% are preoccupied by the CC
there is a big gap between B and T
T: the climate is a hoax
B: the climate is an urgent matter, program;
spend over 2,000 billion to reorganize the national energy system
in key states, NT times and Siena college asked voters for their views on climate issues
we focus on Florida: very vulnerable to flooding, key states
82% of Democrats are worried
26% of Republicans are worried
Example: Kelly Kaiser, 47, owns a decoration store.
she voted for Trump but that doesn't mean she isn't concerned about the climate. in times of Covid she thinks Trump can save the economy better
we must look beyond the numbers
CC is a hot election topic
the majority of Americans agree to consider CC if it is proven by scientific evidence
but voters are increasingly sensitive to this subject.
Stanford University study + Resources for the Future + ReconMR
"sensitive public" (who think climate is extremely important) to climate change reaches 25%.
a reccord number
several factors explain this increase: among the Democrats we are more preoccupied + a series of catastrophes (fires, floods) which will react + greater media coverage
