64% Of Republicans Now Say Climate Change Is Real

Courthouse News reports:

A new poll released Thursday shows that a majority of Americans, as well as almost two out of three Republicans, believe in the threat of climate change, a position at odds with President Donald Trump’s belief on the subject.

The Monmouth University poll revealed that nearly 8 in 10 Americans more extreme weather patterns due to global climate change, a jump up from 70 percent the last time the poll was taken in December 2015.

A majority of Republicans, 64 percent, believe in climate change, an increase from 49 percent from the last poll. The poll was taken before the federal government released a national climate assessment that reported climate change threatened the country.
