The 2016 Conservation in the West Poll

A Survey of the Attitudes of Voters in Seven Western States

In January 2016, for the sixth year in a row, the State of the Rockies Project, in conjunction with Lori Weigel, Public Opinion Strategies and Dave Metz, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, has released the Conservation in the West Poll.

The survey, conducted in seven western states, explores bi-partisan opinions in each state and for the six-state region concerning conservation, environment, energy, the role of government, trade-offs with economies, and citizen priorities. This year the survey breaks new ground by polling in the state of Nevada for the first time in the poll's six-year history.
