POLL: 76% of Americans want more solar

According to a recent Gallup poll, over three-quarters of Americans want the U.S. to put more emphasis on producing domestic energy using solar power.

The poll found that when asked whether the U.S. should place “more emphasis” on various energy sources for domestic power production, solar came out on top, with 76% of respondents saying more emphasis should be placed on the renewable energy source.

Wind and natural gas came in next, with 71% and 65% respectively saying that these energy sources should be emphasized more.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, oil, nuclear and coal were the least popular energy sources.

Democrats most favored solar, with a whopping 87% of all Democrats saying solar should be a more prominent source of energy, compared to 68% of Republicans. Republicans most favored natural gas, with 78% wanting to see it emphasised more.

While respondents in living in the South had a more positive view of traditional energy sources, solar still came out on top when votes were broken down geographically.

Gallup surveyed 1,022 adults across all 50 states and the District of Columbia over telephone last month to achieve these results.
