Description (excerpt):

A new bipartisan national survey of 1,000 registered voters finds that a vast, bipartisan majority of American voters support tighter standards on smog-causing pollution. Over two-thirds of voters enter the debate favoring updating standards with stricter limits, and a solid 62-percent majority continues to favor the standards after messaging from both sides of the issue. Support for the proposal is robust across every region of the country and across almost every demographic group and it earns support from an overwhelming percentage of Democrats and independents and even a solid majority of Republicans.
