Voters Still Support Keystone XL Pipeline

While President Obama has indicated that he would likely veto a bill directing the federal government to move forward with the approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline, most voters continue to favor the pipeline’s construction and feel it will help the U.S. economy. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters now at least somewhat favor building the major oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while just 27% are opposed. This includes 37% who Strongly Favor the project and 14% who Strongly Oppose it. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls: Week Ending Nov 8

Now America’s in the eye of a hurricane. The storm of Election 2014 is over, and we have a little calm until the new Republican Congress and our lame duck president face each other down beginning in January.

There were 36 Senate races this fall. We projected a GOP takeover of the Senate on Monday. Here’s a state-by-state post-election look at how we did in our Senate surveying.

What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 1, 2014

Is there a Republican Congress coming on Tuesday? The votes are already being cast in a number of states around the country.

Louisiana Senate: Landrieu (D) 43%, Cassidy (R) 36%, Maness (R) 13%

With one week left until Election Day, Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu has pulled further ahead of Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy in Louisiana’s U.S. Senate race, but does it matter? A runoff seems more likely.

Landrieu needs at least 50% plus one to be reelected, and she now picks up 43% of the vote to Cassidy’s 36% in the latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Louisiana Voters. Another Republican, Tea Party favorite Rob Maness, earns 13% support, while three percent (3%) prefer one of the other candidates in the race.  Six percent (6%) are undecided.
