As we have been covering issues surrounding the proposed 2011 Federal budget, there is great information in this latest poll:

The survey found that 79 percent of respondents agree that, “to jump-start investment and maintain U.S. competitiveness, the federal government should provide guarantees backing loans for buildings solar, wind, advanced-design nuclear power plants or other energy technology that reduces greenhouse gases.” Nineteen percent of those surveyed do not agree, and two percent don’t know.

Those who “strongly agree” outnumber those who “strongly disagree” by a similarly lopsided margin, 46 percent to 10 percent.

This was a telephone survey of 1,000 U.S. adults was conducted Feb. 10-13 by Bisconti Research Inc./GfK Roper for the Nuclear Energy Institute.
