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
