A Sierra Club-sponsored survey of 1,000 Hispanic voters reports “overwhelming” concern about energy, global warming, and environmental issues.
The March 20-23 poll results show “energy and global warming is viewed as one of the two most important environmental problems for Hispanics, and four-fifths of these voters consider it to be a major problem” for their health and that of their families. The poll results by the firm of Bendixen & Associates indicate that 39 percent of surveyed Hispanic voters with a college degree say they have received “a lot of information” about global warming. For those with a high school degree or less, the corresponding figure is 17 percent. By income brackets, 58 percent of those earning $100,000 or more annually say they have received a lot of global warming information, while 18 percent of those earning less than $25,000 respond in that way.
