Support for alternative energy declines, offshore drilling increases

Interest in alternative energy sources like wind and solar has waned among Americans over the last year, while support for offshore oil and gas drilling has climbed back up to pre-BP oil spill levels, according to a poll released Monday. 
Fifty-two percent of those surveyed by the Pew Research Center support alternative energy, down 11 percent compared with March 2011. However, interest in developing oil, coal and natural gas resources rose by 10 percent, while the remainder to those who said they supported both or didn’t know.

Support for offshore oil and gas drilling in U.S. waters has also recovered to its levels prior to the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed now favor allowing increased offshore drilling, up from 57 percent a year ago and 44 percent in June 2010, during the spill.
Democrats are in real trouble on this issue where 64 percent of independents support offshore drilling.  The GOP needs to have a real targeted campaign pitch on expanding off shore drilling.
