Climate change concerns grow, but few think Biden’s climate law will help, an AP-NORC poll finds

Alexa St. John and Linley Sanders of the Associated Press report on polling about climate change.

The C3 Take
  • A new poll from AP-NORC found that 45% of American adults have become more concerned about climate change over the past year.
  • Despite the Biden administration’s messaging on the issue, a majority of Americans are not familiar with President Biden’s marquee piece of climate legislation, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
  • The reason for this is that subsidies in the IRA have only benefited a privileged few and inflation and energy prices have remained high.
  • The most effective and popular climate policy will be those that reduce costs and unleash the private sector to innovate.

“But one of Biden’s major pitches for the IRA — that it will help the American economy and U.S. workers — doesn’t seem to be resonating. According to the poll, only about 2 in 10 Americans say the law has done more to help the U.S. economy, while about one-quarter think it’s done more to hurt the economy, and about half think it either made no difference or don’t know enough to say.”
