Poll: Swing-State Voters Favor EPA Regs

Swing-state voters largely approve of new regulations to curb power plant emissions, according to a poll released Monday by the environmental group League of Conservation Voters.

Seventy-four percent of voters, the group says, gave their support to regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency that would limit emissions for new coal-fired power plants. LCV surveyed 11 swing states with 2014 Senate races.


That support also includes plenty of Republicans, as 58 percent of GOP repondents gave the new standards a nod of approval. Voters also overwhelmingly placed more faith in EPA than Congress to set new regulations.

LCV surveyed 1,113 likely voters via landline and cell phone from Oct. 9-13. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
