56% See Keystone XL Pipeline As Good for the Economy

Monday, January 06, 2014

Secretary of State John Kerry is reportedly pushing hard for a new international global warming treaty, prompting speculation that this will further delay a government decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline from western Canada to Texas. Most voters continue to favor building the pipeline and think it will be good for the economy, as they have in surveys since late 2011.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat favor building the pipeline, while 28% are opposed. This includes 32% who Strongly Favor the Keystone project and 15% who Strongly Oppose it. Another 15% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
