Nearly Half Say Gov’t Environmental Efforts Lacking

Americans tilt toward the view that the government is doing too little to protect the environment — at 47% — while 16% say it is doing too much. Another 35% say the government’s efforts on the environment are about right. …

Significantly more Democrats (59%) than Republicans (33%) say the government is doing too little to protect the environment — reflecting general philosophical differences in approach to the role of government across party lines. And, concomitantly, more than one in four Republicans vs. 2% of Democrats say the government is doing too much to protect the environment. [cont.]
