New polling shows that 73 percent of Americans prefer emphasizing alternative energy, rather than gas and oil production, as the solution to the nation’s energy problems. According to Gallup, which conducted the poll of 504 adults from all 50 states, this marks the highest percentage of Americans prioritizing alternative energy since the firm first asked the question in 2011. Importantly, the 2016 poll also marks the first time a majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents prefer an alternative energy strategy; 51% of Republicans now say they favor alternative energy.
