    POLL: 62% WANT NEW ENERGY

    Rasmussen: “Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Americans are following recent news stories about oil prices at least somewhat closely.” That’s more than are watching “Dancing With The Stars.”

    62% Say Develop Alternative Sources of Energy, 12% Favor Conservation
    October 25, 2007 (Rasmussen Reports via Yahoo News)

    WHO
    Rasmussen Reports, 1000 US adults

    A different poll from earlier this year shows Americans continue to prefer control of emissions and the development of New Energy to more oil drilling or nuclear expansion. (click to enlarge)

    WHAT
    Rasmussen published findings from a survey on US attitudes about energy.

    WHEN
    - The survey was conducted October 21-22, 2007
    - A survey from 2006 found that 44% of Americans believed most new cars sold 10 years out would be hybrids.

    WHERE
    The survey was national and conducted by telephone.

    WHY
    - Rising oil prices means possible new attitudes about energy.
    - From the survey: “62% of Americans believe that the best way to meet the country's future energy needs is to develop alternative sources of energy…20% think that finding more sources of oil is the best way to meet future energy needs…12% believe that conservation is the right strategy.”
    - Also: “…78% of those surveyed think…it very likely that heating oil prices will increase this winter.”
    - And: “…68% think it…at least somewhat likely that gasoline prices will reach $4 per gallon by next summer.”

    Yet another survey from early last year shows Americans want New Energy more than any other choice. (click to enlarge)

    QUOTES
    Rasmussen: “The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.”
