Democrats Warmly Embrace 'Green New Deal'

An increasing number of elected Democrats including several presidential hopefuls are endorsing a so-called Green New Deal although the details vary. Democratic voters love the concept, but other voters still aren't convinced.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 81% of Likely Democratic Voters favor a Green New Deal that would focus on climate change, income inequality and racial injustice. Sixty-three percent (63%) of Republicans are opposed. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 38% favor a Green New Deal that emphasizes these issues, while slightly more (41%) oppose it.
