Polls Indicate That Environmental Policy Can Win Independent Votes
This article reviews several studies which show that most Democrats and Independents are supportive of positive messages about global warming. Republicans, of course show weak support on global warming messaging but they are no going to vote for Democrats anyway. Several of the polls were conducted before the droughts that hit much of the US this summer. Messaging targeted toward affected areas might swing independents in those states. Democrats may be missing an opportunity. There was do mention of global warming at their nomination convention.
