Politico Poll: Nearly Half of Voters Disapprove of Trump Vehicle Emission Plan

Almost half of voters are against a Donald Trump administration plan to roll back vehicle emissions standards, a Politico-Morning Consult poll released Thursday said.


The proposal would freeze rules that required automakers to build more fuel-efficient cars, including hybrids and electric vehicles. The proposal would also roll back a rule that ordered automakers to almost double the fuel economy of vehicles by 2025, the poll report noted.


In the poll:

 


  • 49 percent strongly oppose or somewhat oppose the plan, with 36 percent saying they had strong opposition to it.
  • 32 percent strongly support or somewhat support the plan, with 17 percent saying they were somewhat in support of the plan.
  • 20 percent said they did not know or had no opinion.

Voters were more split over what they believed would be the effects the plan would have on U.S. consumers.


  • 18 percent said the plan would strongly hurt consumers
  • 17 percent said the plan would somewhat hurt consumers
  • 14 percent said the plan would neither help nor hurt
  • 17 percent said the plan would somewhat help
  • 15 percent said it would strongly help
  • 19 percent did not know or had no opinion

The Trump administration proposed the plan on Aug. 2.


The Politico-Morning Consult poll was conducted from Aug. 2 to Aug. 6, and surveyed 1,994 registered voters, with a margin of error of 2 percentage points, the poll report said.
