Declining Support for Democrats' National Energy Tax Legislation


WASHINGTON, D.C., October 29, 2009 - Yesterday, Wall Street Journal blogger Keith Johnson wrote an interesting post about a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that was released. The poll highlights America’s declining support for cap-and-trade legislation.

Only 48% of the public would approve of a proposal that “would require companies to reduce greenhouse gas that cause global warming, even if it would mean higher utility bills for consumers to pay for the changes.” 43% of those surveyed said they disapprove of the plan, while 9% are undecided.

“That’s a noteworthy drop from 53% approval and 40% disapproval in April,” Johnson writes.
