New Poll Finds That Americans Have No Interest In Paying For Far Left’s Green New Deal

Lots of Americans believe that climate change is a problem, but very few of them want to put their money where their mouth is.

A new poll finds that the American people have next to zero interest in paying for AOC’s Green New Deal.

Some people were willing to kick in a few bucks a month, but that’s about it.

New Poll: Americans Aren’t Willing to Pay for the ‘Green New Deal’—And It’s Not Even Close

Americans largely agree that climate change and pollution are real problems. But a new poll reveals that they aren’t interested in shelling out massive amounts from their wallets in pursuit of progressive, big-government “solutions” like the so-called “Green New Deal.”

After all, the Green New Deal would cost taxpayers up to $93 trillion, a truly astounding sum that comes out to nearly $600,000 per US household. Yet most Americans aren’t even willing to sacrifice $50 a month to mitigate climate change. At least, that’s the finding of newly-released polling from the fiscally-conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

CEI surveyed a representative sample of 1,200 registered voters on environmental issues, and their findings have a margin of error of 2.83 percent.

Here are the hard numbers in dollar amounts:

About 35 percent said they wouldn’t be willing to spend anything, with another 15 percent saying they’d only sacrifice $1-$10. Another 6 percent were willing to give up $11-$20, while 5 percent said they’d sacrifice $21-$30. In all, a whopping 75 percent of respondents were not willing to pay more than $50 a month.

Is anyone surprised by this?

Sorry, AOC. Most Americans are smarter than you thought.
