  • Likely Democratic primary voters prefer candidates who support a Green New Deal. Nearly half (46 percent) of likely Democratic primary voters would disapprove if their incumbent House representative opposed a Green New Deal while only 26 percent would approve (28 percent did not express an opinion).

  • In all districts polled, likely Democratic primary voters said they would disapprove if the incumbent did not support Green New Deal. In three districts (MA-06, MA-08 and NY-03, the preference was a majority, not plurality).
