U.S. Voters Looking for Leadership on Fuel Efficiency Issue
COLUMBUS – Voters want higher fuel efficiency and said they would hold Congress and its members in higher regard if such standards were passed, according to a survey released Monday.
Several area U.S. House members are being targeted in a national campaign to get them to back tougher fuel standards for motor vehicles.
Voters in 34 districts in seven states “strongly support” mandating higher fuel efficiency, not capping federal miles-per-gallon ratings and implementing mandates sooner rather than later, according to the Pew Campaign for Fuel Efficiency. Democratic pollster Mark Mellman of the Mellman Group and Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies conducted the survey earlier this month of 3,900 likely voters in the 2008 election.
