Conservation in the West Poll Arizona Press Release- February 13th, 2014

Pro-conservation candidates generate enthusiasm among Arizona voters.

  • Arizona voters are very enthusiastic toward a candidate who wants to promote greater use of renewable energy, with 72% saying they would be more likely to support such a candidate (48% much more likely).  Likewise, they  strongly back a candidate who “supports enhancing protections for some public lands like National Forests” (69% more likely and 34% much more likely to vote for that candidate). 
  • On the other hand, Arizonans react negatively towards a candidate who holds anti-conservation positions.  Voters in Arizona are among the most likely to say they would not support a candidate who voted to reduce funding for federal agencies which oversee public lands, as seen in the following graph.
