The chart below shows state level support for three questions used to determine the political effectiveness of a Green New Deal. We find strong support across the country for green jobs and for candidates running on green jobs and renewable energy.
The chart below shows support, opposition and net support (support - opposition) for every state.
The full question wording is as follows:
Would you support or oppose giving every American who wants one a job scaling up renewable energy, weatherizing homes and office buildings, developing mass transit projects, and maintaining green community spaces?
Support 100% Candidates:
Would you be more or less likely to support a candidate for office who supports moving the United States to 100% renewable energy by 2030?
Green Job Candidates:
Would you be more or less likely to support a candidate for office who supports a jobs guarantee to address the economy, inequality, and climate change by offering every American who wants one a job expanding renewable energy, mass transit, efficient buildings, community green spaces, and resilient infrastructure?
