But how much? The bi-partisan polling team of Lori Weigel (Public Opinions Strategies) and David Metz (FM3) asked voters in five western states an open-ended question:
“If it were up to you, what % of (STATE)’S electricity needs would come from renewable sources like wind and solar power?”
The answer? 65.1 % was the mean.

People want renewables, and not just a little. A lot.
