Hot off the Press:
Key District Polls are in–and the numbers are phenomenal.
A new poll just released by OpinionWorks shows that in two of the most politically critical senate districts there is overwhelming support for expanding renewable energy. In district 38, the lower Eastern Shore, 74% of voters support expanding the renewable energy requirement to 50%, and in district 8, northeastern Baltimore County, 75% of voters expressed support.
Districts 8 and 38 are expected to have close senate races in the 2018 elections, and this poll shows that in both districts more than 30% of voters will switch which candidate they vote for based on whether the candidate supports the Clean Energy Jobs Act.
The two campaign managers of the Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative, Nikki Richards and Jamie DeMarco, commented on the importance of these polls: “The Clean Energy Jobs Act has overwhelming support throughout Maryland and in key legislative districts.” Said Nikki. “We need to listen to Maryland residents and pass this legislation in 2018.” Jamie Agreed.
“These strong numbers indicate that voters have an appetite, almost an impatience, for renewable energy in Maryland, including in these swing legislative districts” said Steve Raabe, President of OpinionWorks
