New Poll: MI Voters Oppose Blocking EPA

15 Feb 2011  |   Damien Shirley

At 10:00 (EST) tomorrow morning, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research will release a poll of Michigan voters showing support for the EPA regulating greenhouse gasses.

While the specific numbers won't be released until tomorrow, GQR revealed in an email today that their survey shows "overwhelming support among Michigan voters for allowing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from large industrial sources."

Michigan is the home state of House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Fred Upton, who has sponsored legislation (along with notorious global warming denier Sen. James Inhofe) that would block the EPA from regulating greenhouse gasses under the Clean Air Act.

This is the second recent poll showing Rep. Upton's constituents opposing his efforts to block the EPA.
