Public Policy Polling survey released ahead of Arizona Democratic Primary

New polling released by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and LCV’s Chispa program shows that the vast majority of Arizona Democratic primary voters (90%) believe environmental and climate issues are important and 86% of Arizona Democratic primary voters say they are more likely to support a candidate who pledges to make climate change a top issue in their administration and prioritize policies to move the United States to a 100% clean energy economy.

Additional key findings include:

  • A plurality (46%) of likely primary voters in Arizona do not think that the Democratic candidates for president are talking enough about climate change in their campaigns
  • 80% are more likely to support candidates with a climate change plan that prioritizes communities most affected by pollution, including lower income communities and communities of color
  • 93% support restoring federal rules that stop polluters from putting toxins in the water and air
  • 92% oppose the construction of a wall along the United States-Mexico border
