This fact sheet provides information on climate change polling in the United States over the last eight months from a variety of sources. Overall the studies show:
- The number of Americans saying that climate change is happening and is caused by human actions continues to rise, but still has not reached a level comparable to the 2007 peak.
- There is a disparity among party lines when it comes to climate change, with a large majority of Democrats believing that human actions are changing the climate, while fewer Republicans hold the same belief. However, strong majorities of self-described liberal and moderate Republicans say climate change is happening.
- There is bipartisan support for the federal government to regulate greenhouse gases.
