Poll: More Americans Support Fracking Than Reject It | The Daily Caller

A new University of Texas (UT) poll found a sizable jump in the number of Americans who support hydraulic fracturing.

The poll found 43 percent of Americans support fracking, higher than the 42 percent who oppose it. The percentage of Americans who support fracking jumped three points since October, and opposition fell by the same margin in that time.

The poll is a semiannual survey UT conducts in October and March, asking 2,013 American consumers a wide array of questions on energy issues. UT funds the poll through a “variety of sources, including executive education programs and corporate and individual donors” and “donors have no influence on the way the poll is conducted.”

“The more people become familiar with fracking, the more they recognize that it is critical for our economy, our energy security, and the advances we are making in reducing air pollution,” Steve Everley, a spokesman for Texans for Natural Gas and was not involved with the poll, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
