Americans’ views on global warming have continued to become more “politically polarized” after one year of President Donald Trump, according to new Gallup polling data.
Gallup pollsters found American concern over global warming is “becoming increasingly partisan and therefore entrenched.” Democrats have become more concerned over global warming while Republicans and Independents became more skeptical.
“With Trump reversing many of his predecessors’ policies aimed at curbing global warming, Democrats are feeling a greater sense of urgency about the issue, while Republicans have either remained as skeptical as they had been in the past or have become more so,” reads Gallup’s poll analysis.
For example, the percentage of Republicans and Independents who believe global warming is caused by human activities fell 5 percent and 7 percent, respectively, from 2017 to 2018. Democrats, on the other hand, increasingly saw global warming as man-made.
