January 11, 2016
A new opinion poll finds strong public support for national public lands.
Poll by The Colorado College, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, and Public Opinion Strategies.
- “Most Westerners in this poll favor greater protection and sensible use of the open lands and national treasures that define the region.”
- 58 percent of respondents oppose giving state governments control over national public lands.
- 60 percent of respondents oppose selling significant holdings of public lands like national forests to reduce the budget deficit.
- “Ahead of the 2016 elections, 75 percent of respondents say issues involving public lands, waters, and wildlife are an important factor in deciding whether to support an elected public official, compared to other issues like health care and education.”
