Drill, Baby, Drill; 69 Percent Approve


Seven out of 10 voters (69%) support offshore oil drilling, and even more (77%) favor tax incentives for the development of alternative energy sources, which means Congress is on track with the energy bill it is expected to pass in the next two weeks.
Nineteen percent (19%) oppose offshore drilling, and 12% are against tax incentives for solar, wind and new conservation programs, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Both drilling and alternative energy plans have registered consistently high support in previous Rasmussen Reports surveys.
