Swing-State Voters Say ‘No’ to THIS!

(TheProudRepublic.com) – Confronted with the harsh reality that his bet-it-all-on-green does not address Americans’ current economic concerns, Joe Biden’s tough environmental rules and push for electric vehicles are not winning favor among voters in swing states.

Funded by the conservative-leaning 85 Fund, a CRC Research poll shows voters are clearly not interested in electric vehicles and resist the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new plans to tighten tailpipe emission standards.

The survey found that 57% of respondents opposed the stricter regulations on gasoline-powered vehicles, with 37% strongly against them.

Support was notably lower, with just 31% backing the regulations, including only 10% in strong support.

When it comes to the broader economic impacts of these environmental policies, 57% of those polled opposed higher costs and fewer car choices if the trade-off meant achieving climate goals.

This sentiment was common among Republicans and independents, while Democrats seemed more accepting of the costs for environmental benefits.

Regarding future vehicle purchases, only 7% of participants plan to buy an electric car next, way less than the 48% who intend to buy a traditional gasoline or diesel vehicle and 18% considering a gasoline-based hybrid.

Furthermore, more than half of the respondents (52%) said they favor politicians who resist the push for electric vehicles, compared to 29% who favor those who support such policies. This division fell on partisan lines.

The poll surveyed 2,800 registered voters from key battleground states—Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—in mid-April.

Each state sample consisted of 400 voters, with a margin of error of 1.95% at the national level and 4.9% at the state level.

The findings suggest that Biden’s focus on his “Bidenomics” campaign to reach younger voters relies on electric vehicles and climate initiatives.

However, the move might be less appealing to crucial swing-state voters.

This could pose challenges in his upcoming election campaign against former President Donald Trump, especially as Republican candidates in these states highlight the potential negative impacts of stricter oil and gas regulations on manufacturing jobs.
