Latino Electoral Power: The Climate Case Against Trump

On January 23 – 28, 2024, Hart Research Associates conducted an online survey on behalf of Climate Power.

MEMO: Latino Voters Support Clean Energy Investments and Climate Accountability

For Latino voters, the rising cost of goods and services is a top issue. Majorities of Latinos report spending more on groceries, home electricity bills, energy costs, housing costs, and home insurance costs over this past year. Furthermore, Latino voters recognize extreme weather events driven by climate change and pollution have a direct impact on increasing kitchen table costs, and view climate action, including expanding the clean energy industry, as important.

MEMO: New Polling on Oil and Gas Accountability

POLL: Voters Soundly Reject MAGA Republican ‘Project 2025’ Plan in Favor of President Biden’s Clean Energy Plan

A new survey released today by Data for Progress and Climate Power found that voters soundly reject the “Project 2025” energy plan authored by the Heritage Foundation and other polluter-funded, climate-denying organizations. Voters reject key planks of the plan – often by large margins, and, overall, would be less likely to support a candidate who backs the MAGA Republican plan by a 16-point margin (51% to 35%). And by a 14-point margin (55% to 41%), voters say climate change is serious and urgent, not “mild and manageable,” as the plan’s author contends.
