New Poll from NextGen Climate: 83% of Ohio Voters Support #50by30

NextGen Climate has released a new poll that shows Ohio voters are in full support of powering our county with more than 50% clean energy by 2030. Of the 83% who favored the policy, 75% were Republican. And 42% of respondents are more likely to vote for a presidential candidate who supports #50by30, while only 14% are less likely. 

NextGen Climate Ohio State Director Joanne Pickrell said this of the polling data: "Ohio voters want our next president to be a champion for clean energy and they're ready to make their voices heard at the ballot box."

Pickrell explained the benefits that #50by30 will bring: "For Ohioans, powering our country with more than 50% clean energy by 2030 will create up to 56,000 jobs—including thousands of jobs in the construction sector—while growing the state's economy by up to $9.5 billion."
