Poll: Americans Skeptical of Federal EV Goals

July 5, 2023
A new poll shows that most Americans are skeptical of the Biden Administration’s goals of phasing out the sale of gasoline vehicles by 2035.

A new poll from Pew Research shows that most Americans are skeptical of the Biden Administration’s goals of phasing out the sale of gasoline vehicles by 2035, Yahoo News reports.

Of those surveyed, 59% expressed opposition to gasoline vehicles being phased out by 2035, with only 21% saying they would be excited if such a policy were to advance. This is an 8% increase in opposition from April 2021, with 51% of Americans surveyed expressing disapproval.

When divided by political parties, 84% of Republicans and 16% of Democrats expressed opposition, with Democrats approving by a margin of 64% to 35%.

Much of the disapproval may be credited to Americans doubting that the country’s infrastructure will be able to keep up the pace, with 17% saying they were very confident it could happen, 30% being somewhat confident, and 53% not being confident it can happen.
