This is weird. A new Rasmussen poll shows that voters like the coal industry a lot more than the EPA, yet they twice elected a man who once promised to destroy the coal industry, and that’s one promise he’s keeping. Go figure.
Voters view the U.S. coal industry more favorably than the Environmental Protection Agency and are closely divided when asked if the Obama administration’s ultimate goal is to kill that industry.
Fifty-one percent (51%) of Likely U.S. Voters view the U.S. coal industry at least somewhat favorably. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 29% hold an unfavorable opinion of it. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
