ABC/WaPo Poll On Climate Change Shows Waning Support For Obama, Scientists, Legislation

Another day, another poll with cratering numbers for Obama and his policies. 

President Obama’s approval rating on dealing with global warming has crumbled, and there is broad opposition to spending taxpayer money to encourage developing nations to curtail their energy use. The public’s doubts on what scientists believe about the environment are growing and becoming more politically polarized, though most support federal government regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.

Only 30% trust global warming scientists.  When you break it down by party, 58% of Republicans and 40% of Independents say they only trust the scientists a little or not at all.

On Obama’s handling of climate change, only 45% approve – down from 61% in April – and 39% disapprove. 

When asked whether they support the U.S. contributing billions of dollars to help developing nations reduce greenhouse emissions, 57% oppose the spending.

Support melting faster than Al Gore’s ice cap.
